Gift Set of card and corner Bookmark.

Hello my dear friends,  It's Saturday every early morning 1.00am, I had my sweet Twin Grandsons staying for a sleep over for the past couple of nights (school holidays!!) they so look forward to 3 or 4 sleepovers during their summer break, but this is the first time I've had them for 2 nights in a row.  It was fantastic "but" I'm exhausted lol.  Think we'll need to rethink the two nights.  Anyway this is the first opportunity I've had to sit quietly in my craft room and create something. My Daughter enjoyed the break and didn't pick them up until after supper.

 It's my step Grandaughters birthday in a few days (she will be 16) my gosh how the time flies, she's a beautiful, loving girl and has been part of our family since she was 10.

I wanted to make her something special and since I made my first corner bookmark a few days ago I thought I'd make another to match her card.  This is just a wee token, her real pressie is all wrapped up and ready to give her on her birthday.

I've used another of my sweet mini Tilda's (I'm loving these and collecting them like wildfire) for the bookmark and a full sized Tilda for her card.

I've used lots of girly elements on both creations, Gems, little flowers from Making Memories on the bookmark, WOC and prima on the card. They've all been stickled to give them glimmer. Ribbon, swirls, hatpin (made by me) a little chipboard heart that's been painted with white acrylic paint, added crackle pain from TH and glossy accents. lots of other little details, far too much to mention otherwise we'll be here all night. lol.

Anyway I think my pictures should show you all the elements uses.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and for my friends across the pond in Canada and the USA I wish you a very happy celebratory weekend ahead of you.
