but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

A Mystery No Longer...


Today the card on my blog is a card made for a swap on SCS. The swap is a mystery swap. All the participants receive an image that the hostess has picked out. No one but the hostess knows what the image is until the images are received in the mail. Then everyone creates a card or project with the images and on the 18th of the month we are allowed to post the card/project to our blog or gallery.

I love the image we received this month. The image is from the Artful Inkables-Think Big set. And since reading is one of my favorite hobbies, the minute I received the image I knew I wanted to make a pocket card with a bookmark in it. You can find the tutorial for the pocket card at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/, on the resource page. I used Brocade Blue, Pixie Pink, Whisper White cardstock and designer paper all from Stampin' Up! I used the Rounded Tab-Extra Large punch, the three flower punch (retired), very small cirlce punch (retired), and white grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up! I added self-adhesive pearls to the center of the flowers. The sentiment saying on the actual bookmark is from Hambo Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
