Stamped Jeans Bookmark

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Feed Someone
We have developed a wonderful food relationship with one of our neighbors.  In a very impromptu way, we will invite one another over for dinner.  It has become one of our most favorite things - having them come here or us going there to try out new dishes or enjoy some old favorites.  There is something special about breaking bread with others - about sharing what you cook - it's another way to share your love with someone.  There are so many ways to reach out and feed others - whether it is by inviting them over for dinner or purchasing a meal for someone who is down on their luck.  You can donate or volunteer at a local food bank or participate in helping deliver meals to those who are unable to leave their homes.  How can you feed someone today?
Here is another project that brought life to my favorite old jeans!  I made this bookmark for my friend Elizabeth.  I stamped the jeans with the 24-7 stamp set image using Staz-On ink.  I stamped the twill with Staz-On too - using the Itty Bitty Bits bird and the letters from the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set.  A bit of Pretty In Pink 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon finishes the bookmark!  I hope you like it!
