This is a lovely bookmark that I received in the mail from a lovely friend over at Craftmad.  A couple of weeks ago over at Craftmad we had an online Girls Night In to raise funds for Cancer Research.  I couldn't make it as that was the weekend I went to Kurrimine Beach.  Kerry has since written up a tutorial for these lovely bookmarks which you can find here

As well as the above bookmark Kerry sent me five more pretty flower images.  At first I thought I would put this aside a try later probably after Christmas but then I had another think.....these would be great to add to Christmas cards to be a nice little surprise.  Nice and flat and light to post.

So out came my watercolour pencils, aquamarkers and aqua pen and I had a wonderful time colouring all these pretty images in.  Some I have added a touch of Kindy Glitz.

I went around the sunflower and tulip bookmarks with a little faux stitching.  Really love how that finished the bookmark.

This photo I have put Kerry's bookmark up on it's side just to show the magnetic strip on the inside.

Wishing you all a beautiful day with lots of happy moments.
