Our Daily Bread December Release Preview

It's time for Our Daily Bread's December release and I made some bookmarks using the new Ornate   Border Sentiments set from this month's release.  They're perfect for adding little encouraging sentiments to a project.


My daughter went out of state to college, and sometimes can get overwhelmed, so I thought I'd make something to help her get through those moments.  I used the Bookmarks ~Trees set along with the coordinating Bookmarks dies and designed a little pocket for it too.  The sentiments are from the Ornate Border Sentiments set, and the image was colored with Copics.



Here's a second bookmark I made using watercolor paper and Tombows with an Ornate Border sentiment.







That's it from me today.  Be sure to check out all the inspiration the rest of the gals have to share.  You won't want to miss a stop!!
