It's Squigglefly Fun Time . . .

Happy Monday Everyone!  
Can you believe it's already NOVEMBER 1st!  
WOW, where is this year going!!  

Hope your Halloween weekend was fun!  We had a GREAT time and saw some AMAZING costumes at our front door!  We live in a cul-de-sac and our one neighbor invited everyone over for pizza & snacks before trick-or-treat started!  How nice to take the time to catch up with everyone before all the ghosts & goblins showed up!!  I'm sure this will become a annual event ... maybe next year we'll be the ones to host it!

Anyways, onto today's card!  I'm on Kim Rhead's DT group over at Squigglefly and this week she has challenged us to create a card w/detachable bookmark!  I must admit this was a NEW TECHNIQUE for me and I loved how it came out!  You can find the directions HERE if you'd like to give it a try.  (it calls for a special machine for the perforating, but you don't need it)

For my creation, I have used Basic Grey Jovial holiday paper, Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals, and Prismacolor markers for my coloring.  The "Kris Kringle" image is one of my favorites and it's by Marla Shega.

Here is a view of the card partially opened so you can see how it looks with the bookmark attached.  The same designer paper was used for my bookmark but I chose to use a different image.  This is one of Inger Harding's images called "Old Fashion Lady Skating".

A Stampin' Up grommet was added by using the Crop-a-dile for the ribbon tab.

Please be sure to pop on over to the store and see ALL the amazing images available!  We have a couple NEW ARTISTS that you'll want to check out and some FABULOUS images on SALE too! 

I hope you'll come join in on the fun and I look forward to seeing YOUR card!  What a fabulous will added feature to this creation ... have fun with it!

  1. Hello Darlene, Ive had a thoroughly lovely time browsing over your beautiful creations! The care you invest in each piece is so evident and it must be wonderful to receive one of your creations.

    Your bookmark project is fab but I dont have a perforator so will have to think of another way!

    Kris Kringle is my favourite image, he is just magical!
