Bookmark Do-Over!

Hello everyone!  The challenge at Meljen's Designs is to create a bookmark this week.  This bookmark probably looks familiar to you.  I made one a while back and it was ruined when my coffee spilled on it.  This challenge gave me the opportunity to replace it.

I colored Mushroom Mouse using Prismacolor pencils.  The letters were alphabet punches that I got as a Mother's Day gift ages ago.  Like the last bookmark, I put small pieces of magnet tape on both sides on the inside so it won't slip from the page.  I forgot to take a picture so this is a picture from the original bookmark.

Come join us this week for a fun challenge!

Best Dad!

The challenge at Meljen's Designs this week is all about Dad!  Break out your best Dad project using a Meljen's Design and come play with us.

I used Sports Fan Teddy and colored him using Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment is partially computer generated (Best, ever) and "dad" was stamped using the Doodle Alphabet set from Stampin' Up!  The stars were die cut and embossed.  I added twine and some pearls to finish it off.
