Anything but a card

Hurrah!! Weekend. Hope you will all be enjoying a lovely weekend. Here it is still cool, but a lovely sunny weekend forecast, so maybe a little bit of gardening time, mainly tidying up.
Firstly I want to thank my new friends following my blog. I do appreciate you visiting and love your comments.
Today I have made a corner bookmark for my challenge entry at
Sentimental Sundays as the challenge was for anything but a card. I enjoy making these bookmarks, as they slip inside a card very nicely for a small gift.
Paper ... Pink cardstock and DP from My minds eye, came as a free gift in a magazine.
Sentiment.... Sentimental Sundays, printed from the computer and cut with a Nellie Snellen die. Added some colour with distress ink pads.
Finished off with a flourish.... Marianne Designs and pearls
I don't usually put any flowers on as I find this creates too much bulk, when using it as a bookmark.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Today we are having some family time. Doing a walk with our 2 grandsons at their nursery school and then off to watch our eldest granddaughter in a horse show, jumping and dressage. So a good outdoor day, thankfully the temp should be about 18deg C.
