Garden Silhouette Bookmark


I only had a bit of time to stamp today so I decided to make another bookmark.  I really wanted to used some sheer, silver ribbon with a big bow or added a bow to the grosgrain ribbon, but being the practical person that I am, I just couldn't do it LOL!  I would be totally miffed having a huge lump in my book where the bookmark was not to mention my book not closing properly.  So, I keep things pretty simple in the embellishment department when I make these so they remain functional - at least from my perspective LOL!  I have a few more in store for you but I'll spread them over the next three weeks so you don't get sick of seeing them :)

Thanks for all your kind words about our kitty's teeth cleaning and possible tooth removal yesterday.  I'm glad to report his teeth (and gums) look fabulous.  They are all pearly white now and he didn't need to have any pulled :)  Only thing left to deal with is giving him some medicine over the next week.  His blood work was good and the vet says he is in great shape for his age - biiiiiig happy "sigh" :D  

We did have a fun discovery yesterday at his expense.  When we removed the bandage on his front leg where they had to shave a bit of fur to insert the IV, we noticed he has spotted skin like his fur pattern!  He's a spotted tabby and has spotted skin to match LOL!   Who knew?!  Needless to say, we are all glad this is behind us and it is great to have Scruffy back to his normal self today :)

Have a fabulous day and I'll be back tomorrow with my Color Dare card for this week.

Another gorgeous bookmark...you're on a roll! I really must try these - perhaps for Christmas giving along with books. Glad you had good news with your kitty. We had a scare when our Golden Retriever was MIA overnight. He's so frightened of storms and we think he ran and hid somewhere - not sure where.

What a beautiful bookmark, Marisa!! I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who has gotten hooked on a new fold technique lately :) :) :)

lol, that's so funny about your cat's skin!! I know what you mean about book marks having to be flat...then I started wondering how they could be made to fit onto a card!!! Dilemma!! Have a great day :)

Glad to hear your kitty made it through alright - and hopefully he wasn't mad at you for long =)

OH, I LOVE this! However, because I think it is so GRAND, I could NEVER smash it in a book! I'd like to put my order in for a book COVER instead. Whaddya say?
