C4C53, IC248, CQC48 From the Heart

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

It's time for another C4C Challenge ~ C4C53!!! Joycelyn is our September host and here is what she is challenging us to in her own words.... ~ "This week, with school firing back up, I thought we'd celebrate BOOKS"!!! Your challenge is to create anything 'Book Related'! So that can be a bookmark, a stamp image with books, or even a card inspired by a favorite book. Have fun with this challenge and get lost in the world of books!!! Make sure to stop by the C4C blog for all the info and the entire sample cards!!!

I haven't made a bookmark in  f-o-r-e-v-e-r  and ran with that idea.......



I used one of my favorite SU Set this season ~ Watercolor Trio.  My bookmark was inspired  by this weeks IC248 ~ Elizabeth's Embellishments. I chose this beautiful top for my inspiration. It also matches the colors from this weeks CQC48.


This bookmark came together fairly quickly....I stamped the flower images randomly onto some BasicGrey Manila DP. I used Cherry Cobbler CS as my base and punched the upper corners with an EK Corner Adorner. I added some fabulous Lace Ribbon and Cranberry Pearls (which match the Cherry Cobbler perfectly) from my friend Judy's new *Pizzazz Aplenty* store!!! If you have time check out all her fabulous goodies :)!!!

I punched a whole on top of my bookmark and added a Large Silver Eyelet with some more fab Laced Ribbon. I finished it off with a new SU Antique Brad.

We'd love for you to play along :) !!!  For more inspiration check out the C4C Team ~ Angela, Barbara, Cindy, Frances, Jessie, Joanne, JoycelynLyndaMaria, Silke K. and Tammy.

I'm also submitting this idea to this weeks CCEE1035 ~ Create a bookmark.

See ya again tomorrow with another exciting post....hope you come back :) !!! Hugs ~S~
