Blog Candy Winner and Bookmarks

Blog Candy Winner at the end of this post :)

Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas so far with people you love.  I know we've really enjoyed our Christmas with family!

Just before Christmas break our daughter was doing a gift exchange with some friends at school.  They had seen a bookmark I had made her and asked if I'd make them one too.  So I found out their birthmonths and made them a super-quick bookmark with the Calendar Set from Flourishes



The flowers are watercolored on watercolor paper, then I created a oval mask with Eclipse Tape and used Spellbinders Flourish Impressionables as a template to sponge on some pretty color in the flourishy feel. 






Alrighty, here was our little family at my parents' on Christmas Eve: 



And now onto the Christmas Blog Candy winner! It was wonderful to hear the things you have hope for - or hope in!

What a beautiful family you are, and these bookmarks are awesome! I love how you did the edge at the top with the top note die. The coloring on that tiger lily is just STUNNING too. :)

I'm sure the girls were absolutely thrilled with their gorgeous bookmarks Christine!

The photo of your family is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us! We took our camera to my brother-in-law's house and then forgot to take pictures . . . my parents came to my house Christmas Day and my mom refused to let us eat in the dining room because she said it was too beautiful . . . LOL! She and I set up the kitchen table and we ate in the kitchen. Did I remember to take some photos . . . nope! I'm totally hopeless!!!!
