This is one of the two new release stamps this week from Jellypark - this one is called Boy Reading Book and I've made a bookmark!  It seemed more appropriate to me than a card plus its nice to make something other than cards all the time!  AND I wanted to use up some scraps of card!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and then layered him onto the bookmark (a scrap of card from cutting down an A4 sheet to make a card blank) and covered it with freebie papers from The Clip Art Fairy.  The stars have been cut with my X Cut die and I handwrote the sentiment.

I covered the reverse too and added some more stars - just didn't take a photo of it so you'll have to trust me on that one!

The image looks a bit like Jacob - he loves reading and is really quite good for his age and he'll read anything - cereal packets, roadsigns - anything!  Whereas Samuel will only read things he is interested in.  So that's basically F1 or racing!
