Spots before my eyes!

Evening All.....a late one tonight...I'm surprised that I'm still awake as I am soooo sleepy today. The steroids are really messing with my sleep now....only another four days to go, then back to the doctors!

So, tonight I've been working on an exciting little project. Do you remember the other day I showed you my card with the removable cupcake recipe?? Well that got me Christmas time I made all my friends a bookmark...Anika in particular has got great use of of her one (she told me today!) and that made me think that they make quite cool little pressies. Sooooo.......I decided to create a card like the cupcake recipe one, but with a removable bookmark!

The card:
I've used the large oblong card again as that gives me the most room. I've used fab spotty backing paper from the Forever Friends range and made a little pocket out of pink paper. I printed my message on the paper before creating the pocket. I then wrapped the pocket with some lovely white spotty ribbon that I got for free (I know - lucky me!) when I bought some glitter glue recently. I've embellished the card with a couple of punched out flowers and used mini glitter spots in the middle of each.

The bookmark:
I've created the bookmark from layered paper and card in pinks and purples (no surprise there reallyt!) that I have then embellished with the same punched flowers as the main card. Again I printed my sentiment before making the bookmark. I have then laminated the bookmark to make it a little stronger. I've punched a hole in the top of the bookmark and threaded some pink ribbon through for a little girlie finishing touch.

I think this would make a lovely card to give to someone who you wanted to give a little gift to....maybe a thank you or a thinking of you gift??   

This project also fits in nicely with the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday as they have asked for projects that include spots and dots! The DT have come up with loads of fab variations on the theme...take a peek here. 

I also wanted to give my friend a quick mention as I am rather jealous of her current challenge......Fiona is training for this year's London Marathon! I used to be a keen runner myself (pre-knee problems!), but the furthest I ever ran was the Great South Run, which was 10 miles. I am very impressed as this an amazing challenge and I know Fiona and her husband are both training very hard. They are raising money for The Shaw Trust which is a national charity providing training and work opportunities for people who are disadvantaged in the workplace due to disability, ill health or other social circumstances. For more info take a peek here.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my latest card.
