Can you handle another bookmark?

Good morning everyone!
I have a fun little bookmark to share with you today. You all know that the more I read, the more obsessed I am becoming with making these, right? ;o) I just love them though. The fact is, I love to stamp, but as a stamper, I make something and then put it away or send it to it's recipient. That's why bookmarks are so awesome...you actually get to enjoy your art!

Many of you have asked what I put my bookmarks into...they are plastic bookmark sleeves that I bought many, many years ago. You can see similar sleeves HERE. 100 sleeves will literally last you a lifetime!

I read purely for fun. Have you checked out my new book review blog? I update it with about 4 reviews a week of fun chick lit/romance type books...go check it out HERE.

But because I read for the fun of it, I thought that this awesome Helen Keller quote stamp was perfect for this bookmark, because to me, reading is like going on a great adventure...while sitting on your comfy couch.


My color inspiration came from the Bright & Bold Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week over at Moxie Fab World. I cheated just a bit and made a bookmark rather than a card, but that was because I needed to send a bookmark to a friend.

I just LOVE this color scheme!
