A Spoon Full of Bookmark Allsorts!!!

I've been a busy little crafter for the last couple of hours... after blog-hoping and commenting nearly all morning and doing a bit of eBay browsing ;o) I'm finally back with a project - actually two! I've made two bookmarks to share with you, both for various challenges, so I'll start with my fav little girl... Sweet Tilda
The main thing I forgot today was to photograph the boring piece of backing cardboard which came off a used writing pad. I've been keeping it for a while... and adding more to my pile and today, I deliberately set about using it (thanks to Allsorts Challenge - see below).
Challenges for Tilda Bookmark:
Allsorts Challenge: wk 45 Rags to Riches - alter or recycle something (my cardboard)
A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge 96 Bookmark This
Creative Inspirations Ch 30 - Anything But A Card
Magnolia Down Under 39 - Stitching Real or Fake
Papertake Weekly: Sketch #37
The Play Date Cafe Challenge # 22 Colours (below)

Next up is a super cute Forever Friends Bear Bookmark.

Challenges are:
Forever Friends: sketch (I rotated it on it's side)
A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge 96 Bookmark This (2nd Entry)
Creative Inspirations Ch 30 - Anything But A Card (2nd Entry)
Create4Fun week 13 - Recipe: Brown, Pink, Cream
Allsorts Challenge: wk 45 Rags to Riches - alter or recycle something (2nd Entry)
Simon Says Stamp: Spring with some Glimmer (2nd Entry)

Close up of the pearls on the flowers and the stickles on the edge.
Oh, and some super news... I'm now (im)patiently awaiting the arrival of TGF's new release Get Well Soon set by Marina... thanks to Heather, I was a random winner!! Will be sure to show you all when they get here!
