Pretty In Pink

Another adorable image from Hanglar & Stanglar - and since they are my latest obsession, I know it's far from the last. Does anyone else become addicted to things/images/sets? I have a compulsive nature I think. When I get new stamps, I have this need to use them for everything - until I get the next new set.
Anyhow, this bookmark was made for a young friend of mine who loves to read. I love to read - and I love to encourage other people, especially little, impressionable people with sponge like minds, to read. I bought her a book called "What the Dickens" by Gregory Macguire, who just happens to be the author of "Wicked" - and I just happen to have tickets to go see "Wicked" in May - see how that works? See how neatly that all came together? I also have a tendency to get sidetracked but I usually get back on track at some point during the conversation.
So the DP came from Micheals (I think) the image from H&S via Miss Dawn, the "e" is from TAC's AlphaGrunge (one of my favorite alpha's evah) and the butterfly was punched with my MS butterfly punch from some glittery paper sent to me by my aunt. I introduced her to stamping last year when she was visiting on vacation and she now has a collection of goodies that would rival some small stores. (or so I've heard - she lives in Scotland so I haven't seen it for myself - yet!) Compulsive, addictive personalities apparently run in the family but since she is very good about sending me surprise packages of "stuff" I'm not complaining too much.

And yes.... I am addicted to things - rubber stamps, paper, ink, markers, ribbon, etc. etc. Its a long list.

Very cute bookmark! I'm the same way when I discover a new (to me) stamp company. Seem to want to stamp with nothing but those stamps.
