Anything but a card and an award!

The Dutch Dare challenge this week is 'Anything but a card' I had a bagalope folded ready to decorate, then decided to make a bookmark instead! I had seen this style done on someone's blog, sorry can't remember who's, I loved it, so here is my effort, apologies for the bad pictures again! This also qualifies for the Cute Card Thursday 'fairy and angels' challenge!Jacqui kindly sent me this Whiff of Joy image, oh how I love it, and just perfect for a bookmark!
I have been inspired by Rach who makes the most wonderful cards, she not only decorates the front but all sides of her cards and they look fab. So I have simply arranged some of the dp papers on the inside
and also the back
Hope you like it as much as I do, needless to say it's 'mine' even though the only books I read are cookery books! (craft mags, tv mags and OK!)

I have been lucky enough to receive the following award from Crafting Diva, thank you Lisa! It's lovely to know people take time out to look at my blog and to receive awards like this makes it all worth while!
I am meant to select people to pass this onto, but never know who to select, so if you are reading this at the moment and would like to take the award feel free!
Finally Cathy is celebrating passing 10,000 hits to her blog by giving away a lovely bundle of candy which includes a yummy Magnolia stamp, there's also a runners up prize to. Take a look here, congratulations Cathy :0)
