Bookmark Tag

 DDH requested a bookmark for her birthday.....what!!!! ....that's all!!!!!
Let's Ink It Up has a challenge that ends tomorrow, Australia time,
Which means in about 6 hours from now.

There was a tag all crumbled up and stained with Peeling Paint sitting on my work table. I stamped a few times with some Club Scrap rubber stamps and a happy Birthday from SU, the Vintage labels set. Got out the brand new Fired Brick distressing ink re-inker and painted some red on a few areas added Antique Linen and some crocheted trim again from SU. Stamped Happy Birthday all over the back in black. Had to keep it relatively flat since she will be using it as a bookmark.
Thanks for coming by!

ED Note: seems that is not all that DDH wants for her birthday! John and I had a chance to talk over dinner tonight and he said she requested a new faucet for her kitchen and one for her laundry tub. so the girl knows what she wants and who to ask!!!! wonder if we are headed over to the East coast to install both items?
John said he could tell the 7 y. o. how to install them and she would fare better than the two adults in the home. some ppl just don't like messing with the plumbing!!!! 
Had to share.

Hi Joanne, it may be crumpled up and have old paint left on it, but somehow it really works well. To bring it all together is quite an achievement and its turned out brilliantly. Thanks for playing at LIIU, Annette x

DDH, Heather called on Friday to say that they were driving over for her birthday. gave her the faucet for the kitchen on Sat. Told them that DH was gonna teach Emma, 7, how to install a great laugh!!!!

Love the fun vintagey style of the bookmark. I'm totally cracking up at the idea of a 7 year old installing it easier than her parents.
