Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Happy (Chinese) New Year!

OK, OK...so I am late for the western new year, and too early for Chinese new year.  But, I did want to show you these bookmarks that I made for my book club.

 The charms on each represent the sign of the Chinese zodiac for each lady (dog, dragon, rabbit, rat, rooster, etc.).  My good friend Leona took me down to Chicago's Chinatown back in November for a special Dim Sum meal for my birthday.  While there, we looked in just about every little store for these charms.  They are designed to be cell phone charms.  But I think they make these book marks unique!

The Asian background is by SU!, as are the monogram initials.  The script embossing folder is by Cuttlebug.  I used SU! cardstock.  The circle, scallop and square punches are also by SU!
