another corner bookmark

Afternoon all ive got another corner bookmark to show today its for 2 dt's paper sundaes where the theme is bookmark or corner bookmark and is sponsored by funky kits and dream valley where we have a nice and easy anything goes , as ive said before i normally try to make separate dt card but these past few weeks have been manic its half term this week and my OH is busy spending hours most days at his dad's house where he is having to redecorate after a flood from a burst pipe ment the entire ground floor has had to be stripped and re done and he's doing it all on his own bless him as his dad is disabled so its not left me much time to craft . Anyway onto my bookmark ive used this gorgeous little sugar nellie stamped her onto kraft and coloured with prisma pencils and as she is so very sweet and girly ive added loads of gorgeous lace
