Arty Girlz - Tag(s)

Here is my tag for the Arty Girlz challenge. It is a bookmark. I decided that now the nights are drawing in, I need something new & pretty to tuck into my book. I like to read a few pages each night before I go to sleep. Autumn is my favourite season for colour. I mixed two types of fibres to give it a real autumnal feel. I stamped a couple of my fav trees & some leaves at the top. Tag is just a manilla luggage tag I picked up from a stationery shop. Rub on letters to spell out the words are also from the stationery shop.
I have also completed my Wednesday Stamper challenge, which is to be inspired by autumn colours, but it is too dark for a photo so Im a bit miffed!!! I have used inked acetate so using a flash is out of the question. Oh well, there is always tomorrow!

Game of Tag. Sarah has tagged me on the name game. Using a single fact about myself/life for each letter of my middle name.

J just never enough time for the things I want to do, & far too much time wasted doing mundane stuff.

A average student all my life. I never bothered trying because no one was interested if I did well or not.

N not letting anything stop me now, because I do it for me!

E every day is a journey into the unknown. As a crafter, I am learning how to strike out & grasp opportunities. I want to learn new techniques.

Great bookmark, love the treestamps... I have too little "figure" stamps, more fonts and doodles... Oh and don't you just love to read a couple pages before going to sleep.... I do.. sometimes it's hard to put the book away though:-))
