The Eyes Have it...

Well the candy picture in the side bar says it - Hels' Sunday Stampers challenge is 4 years old.  Couldn't let this go without passing, and the theme is "eyes" or faces - but it's Saturday morning and I'm nearly out of time...  what to do.... hmmm

I read a lot - all the time (when I'm not blog-hopping or crafting or twitting!) so I made a bookmark. 

Took a piece of glossy card stock and coloured it with distress ink (evergreen bough) and some Wendy stamps. Yes of course I meant to stamp the letters at the bottom upside down... Used some gel pens to accent the eyes and lips but they don't show up, and some spun sugar (DI) for blusher...

I like to keep my books neat and tidy (hence the bookmark - don't let me catch anyone turning the corners of MY books down...) so I don't like anything bulky on my bookmarks. And it's quicker that way... lol!
You have till 9pm UK time tonight to enter - and she has some great candy on offer to one lucky winner. Thanks Hels' for the challenges, love them!

Now, my new Craft Stamper has just fallen through the letterbox so I must go..!

It's fab Helen and what's wrong with Aussie writing, it's called artistic licence.

Bet you enjoyed yesterday as much as I did, all makes up for Bolton.

I have not checked in here for a while since I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I'll add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend :)
