whimsy challenges and stamp something

The Whimsy Stamps Challenge this week is to create something monochromatic. It had to be all shades of one colour plus a neutral. I think I am stretching the neutral a little as I needed to have brown for the hair, didn't think she would look too good with cream hair!
I used Whimsy Stamps Rainy Day Emma as she fits the theme of Showers or flowers perfectly over on Stamp Something so I can enter this there too!
I decided to make a bookmark as I have just discovered the Twilight novels (thanks Denise) and am using a piece of card as a bookmark. I followed Suzanne Dean's fabulous tutorial for the corner bookmark! They are pretty quick and easy to make!
Last night I realised both my little ones were reading without bookmarks (where do they go?) so I reckon they will both be getting one amongst their birthday pressies!
I have just had a sneak peek at the 2 new kids collection Whimsy stamps, they are adorable, no hints just yet but I promise you will love them, can't wait to get my hands on them!
We also have a new DT member, I am sure you will all know her, Claire of CraftyC!
Watch out for more of her amazing creations!
