Hello all!! Believe it or not...I have another creation to share with you for the second day in a row.  How Thrilling to have the Dirty Dozen challenges at Splitcoast!! I love these challenges each year I was not able to participate Saturday...yet...but I had to join in on Saturday's DTGD12Twinshappy- masculine creation. Stacy challenged us to make something for the men.  A real challenge for me!!!

I decided to go out of the box and make a masculine bookmark using a sneak peak of Our Daily Bread Designs- Bookmark Trees and Bookmark Verses stamp set cut out and framed with the exclusive bookmark dies to be released on Wednesday, August 1.

The sky is sponged and the image is colored with copics. I used some dyed seam binding, colored hemp and scrap ribbon for the tassles.  The entire edge of the bookmark was distressed with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.

 I am entering my creation in the following challenges:
Come and Get It Challenges - Anything BUT a Card  Crafty Pad: Things With WingsAmusing Challenges  Anything Goes Word Art Wednesday- use a Scripture or encouraging sentimentThe Crafty Pad  Things with Wings  Craftymess Challenge  #14 Birds
