I wanted to go with something simple today but I just don't know if I like it. My card was almost to simple, I think. Because the card didn't satisfy my crafting mind I decided to use the same stamp set and make a bookmark. Now that I look at the card this morning, it's growing on me I think. I don't make simple cards very often because sometimes I just can't stop myself from adding more things to it but this time I put my foot down and stopped!

I wanted to have a card on hand for a friend that might be having a hard day. I think this one would be good to send. It's kinda of calming and says exactly what I would like to say to that friend.

Isn't this bookmark just darling? I used embossing powder after I stamped in on the bookmark, heated it up and TA DAH! I embossed the bottom part of the bookmark using my Cuttlebug and then took a flower punch and punched out the flowers where there was only a blank spot on the embossing pattern. I'll probably keep this one for myself!

The stamp set is called "With Love" and it's by Close To My Heart. You can do sooooo many things with this stamp set. My possibilities were endless. I think this will be one stamp set that I'll come back to often.

I love the bookmark. I'm thinking gift ideas!!! THANKS. Wish I could fly out to join one of your groups. There are houses for sale on my street if you need to re-locate!
