A bookmark for Steph

Happy weekend!!!
Well maybe for some of you it's the weekend...
I still have work tonight and tomorrow night...
I'm super excited about the Bronco's game tomorrow!!
I'm all decked out in my Bronco's gear at work tonight!
And I know I won't get much sleep as the game is on early!

Ok, ok, ok so today I took an hour (or two) and created another bookmark
The one I brought for my work friend Sasha was such a hit that all the girls now HAVE to have one!
So I created this one for my dear friend Steph, who is almost never without her cuppa coffee!
I handed her a stack of digi's I had printed out, and she
of course picked out this super cute Saturated Canary digi!
And who am I to say no??
The sentiment stamp is from Unity stamps, and I'll be linking her up next Friday (the 18th)
for their Friends with Flair!
I love love love that stamp, especially since it has my word for the year BELIEVE in it!
First thing I did when I got up today was run to the mailbox hoping it would be there!
And it was!
Ok, so I finally took some time last night and watched a youtube tutorial on coloring hair...
I am so much happier with how the hair turned out....   Still a work in progress, but much better!
Here's her close up!

My only regret with this bookmark is that I covered up some of the cool stamping that I did...
Behind the digi there is an image of a bicycle, and the eiffle tower...
Seeing the eiffle tower is a dream of mine... Oh how I want to go to Paris one day...
And the bike, well it's sorta french, but it's a definite goal of mine to get in better shape this year!

Steph seems to love the bookmark, so I hope you all do too!!!
