Super simple an adorable

Hello,
Had fun this evening making something soooooooo simple and yet PERFECT for that little something to stick in a card your sending.....one of those "why didnt I think of that" things...can mail it also since it's sooooo light weight (if you don't add a ton of stuff heheeeehhheee)....what is it?

It's from Karen, hostess for STV's Anything But a Card Challenge , to "Create an acrylic bookmark, then decorate with stamped images".

Got to use some of that acrylic cardstock that has been sitting in my paper drawer for over a year AND some colored images that just havent worked with anything yet....woooo hooooo! and now I have 5 adorable acrylic bookmarks, ready to give to co-workers, friends, family - just because!  This is the one I'm keeping to use in my pocket New Testament that I keep in the car.

like most of us, I have made a ton of bookmarks but I really like using the acrylic!
this is made with GKD's "By Your Side" by Asela...

Karen has some beautiful ones on the the challenge link above - I want to CAS the one she did with the seashells (we can finally purchase that set tonight at 10pm after the release party at STV)

These were fun!
TIP: I used adhesive for vellum so it wouldnt show since you apply the adhesive to the colored side of your image...on a couple of the others I made ..did use regular adhesive, just in small pieces over the darker colored areas...worked fine!

Have a blessed day,
