Don't you just love this little Sprite? When you see "Aurora" you can't help but smile. She is so happy and full of life. This image is from the "Aurora Collection" by Victoria Case for SCACD.

TheDT was challenged this week to make a bookmark. I have to tell you I really struggled on this one. Maybe, it was a struggle because one of my furbabies (Sierra-large dog-12 years old) is very very sick. I haven't been sleeping well at night, because I listen to her breathing and I get up 3 or 4 times to let her outside. She is having trouble getting her hips up so I have to help her, hopefully, this is because she is weak from the pneumonia. We took her to the Vet Thursday morning and she has pneumonia, but it is a secondary infection to cancer. The cancer has spread in her body and she has severe arthritis. We are taking her back this Friday to see if her lungs are clear. The Dr. will probably take an xray so we can see how far the cancer has spread. We have dog doors so she can come in and out as she pleases except at night we close the doors and she stays inside. She seemed fine until about 2 weeks ago. We didn't even know she had cancer. She was going for 2 walks a day, eating good and acting normal. Anyway, I guess that is enough depressing news.

Now on the my bookmark set. I found this journal, pen, and file folders at Michael's for $1.00 each. I cut one of the files folders for the bookmark. Then, I stamped, colored with Copics, and added Stickles to these two beautiful butterfly stamps by Lockhart, cut them out and put on the bookmark. The little word stamps are from various sets I have in my stash. Sorry, the company name is not on the stamps. I attached two eyelets and the top to run the ribbon through, tied a bow and then I had a finished bookmark.

I am entering this set in the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge #75 - A Matching Set

Hand Full of Stamps #13 - Swirls, Swirls, Swirls

Charisma Cardz #3 - Fruity Colors

A Spoon Full of Sugar #88 - Freestyle

Saturday Spotlight #15 - Let the Sunshine In

Aurora on the butterfly is colored with Copics. I applied gloss on the body and legs and cut out the image to put on the journal. Oh, I forgot - I used Stickles on the wings.

Please be sure to check out the other DT samples here. They are so super talented and creative, you will enjoy looking and getting new ideas.

Thank you for looking and please come back to visit.
