The lovely Holley is holding her annual celebration month of being seizure free. This is her 6th year since having the successful brain surgery. As part of the fun this month Holley has organised a 'Bookmark Making Contest' with the help of the fabulous artist Sandra Caldwell.
Sandra has drawn this endearing little bear especially for Holley. The image is called 'Bearly a Headache' and is available in Sandra's Etsy store.
I decided to make a card as a holder for my bookmark so I could send it to someone as a Get Well gift card. Doesn't it look like the poorly bear is tucked up under the duvet?
The papers are from Kraftyhands Picnic Time CD. I used an A6 card and matted the first paper onto pink card. I then created the little pocket with two more papers and a sentiment. I mounted it onto the card front with 1mm foam tape on the sides and bottom. I added buttons to match the button paper.
I printed the adorable little bear onto cardstock with the sentiment and coloured it with my Copics before cutting it to size and rounding the corners. I inked the edges with Spun Sugar DI and finished the bookmark with a button on a punched flower.
Visit Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop to get yourself this adorable image so you can make a bookmark and play along too. The Bookmark Making Contest is open for another couple of weeks and Holley's fun celebrations run for the whole of February. Pop along and join in.
