Cute Critter Bookmark - The Cutting Cafe

You all know that I started my reading addiction late in life......but I am making up for lost time (take note of my 'bookshelf' on the sidebar of my blog). I just love, love, love to read. I do read using the Kindle & Kobo apps on my iPad, but I am lucky to have friends that read and lend me 'real' books too. I will also admit that I rarely leave Chapters or Walmart without a book or two in my hands.

This is what I usually use for a bookmark when I am reading a 'real' book. I know, not very fancy, is it?

This week over at The Cutting Cafe, we were given the opportunity to work with the cutest, cutest printable stamps ever! Check them out here! There were so many options, but I fell in love with these little lady bugs. I immediately thought of making a bookmark......I don't like people bugging me when I am reading!

I pulled out my Copic markers for the faces and paper pieced the bodies. I used my Silhouette and a free 'grass' cut from Birds Cards to add the grass accents. I added some Glossy Accents to the spots to make them shiny and dimensional.

I finished it off with some bakers twine and a small button.

Isn't it just the sweetest? I just love my new bookmark. I used it last night and it nestled perfectly between the pages :)

Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe blog and see what the other members of the design team have created. Sometimes the post does not go up until later in the day, so keep checking back.

LOVE THIs !!!!!!
Oh you just have to read the Outlander series by Diana Gabldon! The first book is called "Outlander". It takes about 200 pages to get hooked but it is well worth it. I have read the series 9 times. Of the hundreds and hundreds of books I have read, these are my favorite by far.
