Bloom with Hope Bookmarks

I really enjoy making Bookmarks as a quick and easy gift, most people find them useful, even if it is only to use in your Stampin’ Up! catalogue!! ūüôā

Yes, of course I have used Blendabilities to colour these flowers from the Bloom with Hope stamp set, and I am finding the more I used them, the quicker I get at the blending and colouring technique.  These bookmarks also use the Scallop Tag Topper punch at the top, which is a little hard to see in the photo.
Here is a closer look at the colouring:

 

I also promised to share some photos of some of our recent adventures.  We spent a day recently at Yarrongabilly Caves, which was a fantastic experience, and we all learnt a heap about caves and how they are formed.  Well worth the trip if you end up in our area.

I took nearly 100 photos that day, so I won’t show you all of them!!

The scenery in the area is also quite spectacular!

 

Following our look through two of the caves, we decided to have a dip in the local thermal pool. ¬†Yes, it is the middle of winter here, and was around 2 degrees at the time (that’s Celcius, of course). ¬†However, the pool is thermal and maintains a temperature of somewhere around 27. ¬†We didn’t stay in for all that long, but it was heaps of fun.

Time for me to do some stamping.  Hope you have a crafty weekend!
Happy stamping!
Chris

  1. Love your card. Interesting caves. I’m amazed that you have leaves still on your trees at 2 degrees C. When the temperature drops to 2 degrees C in winter at my end of the world, the leaves are gone, and sometimes there is snow on the ground. Australia is on my bucket list of places to visit.

    • Hi Tina, thanks for your comment. The trees are Eucalypts which are evergreen, so they don’t loose their leaves in winter. The area we live in is in the Snowy Mountains so those trees will probably get snow on them over the next couple of months. And yes, Australia is definitely a wonderful place to travel to.
