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!! 🙂

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
