Buggy Bookmark

Today’s challenge at Come & Get It is ‘Anything But A Card’ and we are being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps who are giving away 7 of their fab digis to the winner, please pop along to the other DT members’ blogs as they have come up with some inspirational projects.

Now this is not my favourite kind of challenge, I struggle for ideas so I popped over to
Lena Katrine’s Blog as she has some wonderful templates and tutorials. Time has been really short for me lately and I would love to have made one of her more complicated projects, but her corner bookmarks took my fancy as they looked less time consuming and so here is a bookmark featuring Deacon from Bugaboo. I thought it would be perfect for my nephew who is forever bring my sister delightful gifts from the garden, lol! The image is called ‘Deacon Bugs’ so I thought adding a few 3d bugs would finish off the bookmark.
