There are some great reads out there for this summer. I just finished Carol Higgins Clark's book Wrecked, which I had thought was her latest one, but learned there's one more now, Mobbed. I love her mysteries, she has such a great sense of humor and timing, and her books always have a fun twist to them.
So for this week's challenge: A good read deserves a great bookmark. My book mark is a part of the card, whose edge has been scored for easy tear-off, I stamped and colored a Whiff of Joy image, Melinda Reading Book, with Copics. I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 5.5"x10.5", and scored it at 4.25" and 8.5". After embellishing the card inside and out, I folded in the 2" piece, which became my bookmark, first, then folded my card in half. I like the summery colors I used, and can't wait to gift a good friend witht his card and bookmark!
Now it's your turn. Make a bookmark, any style, any image, any medium. Link it to the blog with a suggestion of a good book to read this summer and the sun just may smile on one lucky random winner!
