fabric stamped bookmark

thanks for all the kind words and prayers for a speedy recovery!  you gals sure know how to make a girl feel special :)

i did a little crafting this am.  (BIG SMILE)  I had this idea in my head after reading 5 books this past week.  i needed a bookmark!  it had to be fabric and then i saw on the internet a cute idea to stamp it also.  its a little scrappy but those are the best projects. 

i love the fabric with the bicycles!  makes me think of being a kid.  i have asked Santa for a new bike for xmas.  i love those beach cruisers and ill put a basket on the front just for fun :)

bookmark bookmark....where was I?  oh yeah,  so i used some linen scraps i had (cuz i love linen).  I also added the word "imagine" using these cheap little stamps i found at michaels.  they were in the $1 bin !!! 

I think ill make a few of these for xmas presents.  who doesn't need a bookmark right?

back to the drawing board for some other ideas.  maybe a small 9 patch on it for that sewing friend?  maybe book shapes from scraps using diff colors and sizes?  its a great way to dig into those scraps.
