mums challenge

well i have not done any crafting for days so thought i would show these book marks i made for my mother and siter~in~law, at christmas.
my mother had set myself and my SIL ( http://www.allisonmoore.com/index.html ) the challenge to take these two images and create something ~seeing as my mother and SIL are artists~i let them draw and paint while i did some stamping!!


used claudia the artist, sugar nellie stamp, magnolia book stamp, quickutz dies, paper and ribbons from my stash.

...and then on xmas day they both said they hadn`t had the time to produce anything with the images!!!!??? well who is the busy mum with over 100 xmas cards made???..and still completed the challenge???
well the boys are back at school today, so life is back to some kind of normal!!
byeeeeeeeeee for now xx
ps my SBS13 friend kari http://dragonflyimpressions.blogspot.com/ has some wonderful blog candy up for grabs!! please take a look.

Hi Vanessa,
Happy New Year, hope you had a good christmas.

Computer back in use so I've thought I'd pop in and say hi. Fab Bookmarks, and I love the card you made for your hubby, it is gorgeous.
Going to sit down tonight and have a play as I'm running low on cards - must use some of my stash.
