A Hug in a Book

Just a quick little make today, being a little scalloped bookmark. I guess it could also be used as a gift tag, but I made a bookmark for my hubby for Valentines day and wanted a little handmade book-mark for myself. And of course it had to have a bear on it !!!  So here he is, my little bear holding his arms out for a hug every time I open my book.  The image is form, of course, The Stamp Fairy, and I've left him white but added a hint of grey Promarker (heavily blended so it's not come out well in the piccy) around the left most edge of each line to give some shadow.  I've added some blue shimmer chalk around the image, cut it into an oval using my new oval cutter, and matted it onto blue card and cut around with scalloped scissors.  Finally I've added a white satin ribbon that my Mother-in-Law bought me for Christmas. 

There we go, a hug in a book!

I've been inspired by the following:

Hugs is one of my favorite sentiments and I use it often, especially with StampFairy images. Hugs and the sweet bears just seem to be meant for each other!!

Your new bookmark project is another wonderful example of where it just seems to work perfectly, especially since you made this one for your hubby!! What a cute Valentine idea and very sweet!

Thanks so much for sharing it with us all and for entering it into this week's challenge at StampFairy!! Good Luck and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Happy Crafting,
