A Summer Card and Bookmark

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted last.  It is not because I haven't been crafting, just too busy to post. So here's one I just did. On Tuesday I met with a fabulous friend for lunch.  We don't get to see each other as often as we like. We both accept that we have busy lives. T
here is some distance between us, but a nice lunch or a movie once in a while seems to suffice, other than quick phone calls here and there.  I have few people that I can make cards for, and use any excuse to get one put together.  Chris goes to Sauble Beach every summer for a couple of weeks with her family and gets lots of reading in.  I decided to use this excuse to make her a nice bookmark and a card.  I used my Saturated Canary image "What the Librarian Wants".  I used some random papers I had in my stash.  I colored my image with my Copics and added Liquid Glass to her glasses to make them look real.  My flourish is a memory box die borrowed from a friend.  For my bookmark I used my Saturated Canary image "FIN-tastic"  I cropped her and used my Nestabilities to cut her out then added rhinestones to the center of her bathing suit and on all the scallops.  I used Lily of the Valley paper for the background and purple and teal cardstock.  Chris loved it and it was great to get together with her and give her this.
