Another Day Another Bookmark!

Well, before I go any further, I'd just like to say a huge hello and welcome to my Followers, new and not so new (no, I didn't say old, lol)
I have a quick post today; with the little magentic bookmark I made for my hubby, so he didn't get jealous of mine, lol.  Here's a tutorial for the basics.
Hubby really does live by the KISS rule, so that's what I used here - that's Keep It SWEET and SIMPLE, thank you! 
The image is Teacher's Pet from Inktegrity... and he's a Freebie!!  I've coloured with Prismacolor pencils and added some gloss to the apple, nose and dog tag. The paper is from Kaisercfrafts Up Up and Away pad, and the brown pattern is flocked, which adds a bit of interest.  More paper from the same pad for the inside and a strip of grosgrain ribbon to finish off.
The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge theme is Anything but a card, so I'm entering there and Papertake Weekly's is Things that make you go Aaw - which this does, so I'm entering there too.
One Stop Craft Challenge has No Floral Embellishments and the Cutie Pie Challenge is to use No flowers at all, so I'm entering there too.  Finally Gem of a Challenge has A Boy Thing as their theme - and the Bearly Mine Challenges theme is an Anything Goes, I'm in!
That's it for today... I know, I said it was a quick post, and for a change it actually is :-)
I've got a lot going on at the moment, not a lot of it craft!  I do have another couple of bookmarks which I've made for my son's upcoming art show.  I am trying to finish some art work to donate (the proceeds are for charity) but as always time is my enemy.
I'll definitely be back on Sunday with a card... the post is scheduled, lol.  Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna

WOW, your bookmark is fantastic!!!!! I love the dog and the beautiful patterned paper. I love how you described your KISS (I'm in the Canadian military and work with a bunch of guys, let me tell you, it means something else, lol!!!). Thanks for joining us this month at BTC&G and we hope to see you again next challenge. Hugs, Brigitte
