Thumbs Up! - Thursday

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Thumbs Up! - Thursday! The first thumbs up are for our Guest Design Team call! Yes that's right, Summer is looking for 3 Guest Designers for our Belles 'n Whistles DT! Are you interested and want to apply? Over at our combined challenge blog with Roses on Paper you are getting all the information you need to enter! The GDT call runs through October 19th. Make sure you check this out!!! We would be delighted to see your entry and good luck to all!

The second thumbs up are for reading! Do you like to read? I LOVE to read. I always have at least two books and several magazines on my nightstand. And I'm also always in need of bookmarks. That is why my project I have to show today is not a card but a bookmark I made using the stamp "Warm Apple Pie".

I colored her using my Distress Inks and set some highlights with Stickles.

I distressed around the image using Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo. The swirls added to the background are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The DP is from Basic Greys new Indian Summer paper pad which I also distressed using Vintage Photo. This is one of my favorite paper pads from Basic Grey right now.

The half pearls I've added on the image and to the ribbon are from Basic Greys Opaline Collection. The half-pearls, DP, Stickles, distress inks and ink pads and Memento ink I got from Roses on Paper.

On the back I stamped a swirl and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I just wanted to add some shine to the swirl.

I hope you like my little bookmark and got some inspiration. Wishing you all a wonderful day and don't forget our GuestDT call over at our combined challenge blog with Roses on Paper.

Thanks for stopping by today and any comments you may leave!
