Twinkling Tuesday is Magical!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Sorry my post is late. I had my card done but yesterday turned into one crazy day and I wound up falling asleep pretty early last night. I feel energized today so hopefully I will be able to get a whole lot done!

Izzy had Melaina over all day yesterday. They had a good time, but are now in the stage where they take toys from each other. Melaina is more assertive than Izzy so she is the one that usually does the taking (she is also 6 months younger). So it was a day spent putting out little fires. It was funny though at one point. Melaina had taken some ribbon from Izzy and Izzy looked up at me and said, "Lainy night, night!". Lol! So I had to explain that it was not Lainy's night night time and that putting Lainy down for a nap wasn't the best solution!

Now to the task at hand! It is Twinkling Tuesday everyone! (A Day Late!) Madelynn has graciously asked her brother Jack to step in this week and give us a sketch. And it is so nice and clean and simple. I have learned though that for some reason the simple ones always trip me up! But hopefully I created a project that Jack will like!

It's a bookmark!!! When I saw the long rectangles on the sketch all I could think about was a book mark! I started my bookmark by first stamping Peter from the Never Ever set by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored him in with my copics. Next, following Jack's sketch, I layered on brown and green card stock along with DP from Stampin' Up. I stamped my sentiment, also from Never Ever on white card stock and cut it out with my labels 4 nesties. I mounted it on green and brown card stock as well. Brads were added to the bands I created and I popped off my Peter image using dimensionals. To complete my bookmark, I punched a hole in the top and threaded through a brown stitched ribbon!!! Hope it is okay Jack!

Now it is time to check out all the other Twinkling Girls!!! This week's featured stamper and now Dirty Dozen Girl is Bonnie!!!! And as always we would love you to participate this week, simply type in the keyword, MTTSC19 when uploading your creation to PCP or SCS and leave a comment on the Twinkling blog so we know where to find you!

Thanks everyone for stopping by today! I really have to apologize for not being by your blogs! My google reader is insane right now and it is going to take me awhile to get through it! I just hate missing everyone's incredible creations! Lots of smiles!

I was glad to see your comment about not being by blogs - I miss "hearing" from you and was hoping things were ok...of course, you are insanely busy and life is crazy so TOTALLY understand!!
