Happy Mother's Day

This is the fabric bookmark that i made
for my very special
Wishing you a lovely day, Wish i could be with you but i'll be seeing you soon xx
Love you lots and lots xxxx
......
Not bad for my first attempt: It's all thanks to a post I had seen on SCS about making a childs bookmark, and this weeks Little Red Wagon challenge which is 'Fabric'.. I figured i would combine the two and get the perfect mothers day pressie. I also incorperated this weeks Crazy Amigos 'Swirls' challenge in the piece.
It wasn't too hard to make although it did take me a whole day!!!
I stamped several swirls in brown stazon onto a piece of fabric canvas, added a fabric scrap which i stitched the edges of, I layered a bit of lace on top and placed die cut letters, which were also from fabric on top of that.
I used an artistic stamper butterfly stamped onto grungepaper and jazzed up with dusty concord distress ink and stickles,an MS butterfly punch and old book paper created the ickle butterfly, and i finished with an eyelet at the bottom to attach scraps of fabric to as my danglie.
I am actually super chuffed with how it came out and so is my mum which makes me very happy indeed.
Wishing a lovely day to all mothers across the world
