Another Bookmark

If you've followed my blog for a while you'll remember about this same time last year I posted a picture of a bookmark that was sent to my daughter.  I believe it was number 76 on bookmarks.  She's a principal of one of the schools in Texas and she gives the children a bookmark when she notices them being kind to one another in the hallway, etc.   I made 50 more over the summer and sent them so she'd have them at the beginning of school.

Around Christmas said she was running low.....as in "out", so needed more.   I started another batch but really hadn't done too many.  After receiving this cute image from Gerda Steiner Designs for her progressive challenge, I decided to make it into a bookmark - and will be making several more like it to send on their way.   The sentiment is from Newton's Nook and then I added the tiny die cut heart.  I did a little masking and stenciling in the background with some distress ink.

I'll enter this in the monthly challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs.

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

This is awesome, Lynn! My original idea for this image was to make a bookmark but in the end I made a card. So happy to see that you made a bookmark because the image is purr-fect for it, as is the sentiment! And WTG with all the other bookmarks you've made for your daughter's school - love this idea! I hope you can share more of your bookmarks when you make them - I want to make some and could use the inspiration!

How nice of your daughter to reward acts of kindness with one of your hand-made bookmarks! I'm sure each one is very special and this one is just precious with that little kitten snoozing on the book shelf! Love the little sentiment too! Great idea, great bookmark and I just love that stenciled background too!

I got a little teary-eyed reading about the super kind thing your daughter does to recognize kindness. Oh, Lynn, if only you had born and raised all the world's young people, it would be a much better place! I love this bookmark ~ that image and the NN sediment were MADE for this purpose!! Please tell her she made my heart happy when I heard what she does! Hugs, Darnell
