A good friend of mine will be sent on a foreign assignmentfor 2-3 years to Saudi in December.  She loves cooking and as a farewell gift, I gave her a cooking book and made this apron shaped bookmark.

As she loves pink, I thought this would suit her most.  The friendship stamp is from Lawn Fawn which is heat embossed in pink and the cutlery is from HA Kiss the Cook.  This is the first time that I used buttons on my cards - as many of you know that I design and sew bags, I realised that I do not have many buttons and decided to recycled some buttons from the old clothings!

The card enters into the following challenges : Annabelle Stamps and Paper Play Challenges

A couple of days ago, we had freezing weather and this is the weather since yesterday which will probably last till tomorrow.  I think I will hibernate for the rest of the day!  Thank you for dropping by!

Lai-Yoke you really make people feel special by sharing your work with them and you always make sure each piece reflects the person's personality.

Brrrr....our weather is getting really wintery also - minus 11 Celsius today, and 15-25 cm of snow on the way tomorrow. Ick. I'm going to hibernate too!
I love this pretty bookmark, especially those fun flower buttons!
