Fanciful Colorful Scrappy Bookmarks

I made a bunch of bookmarks for my best friend's family a while ago as a thank you for watching our dog while we were away at Disney World :) I realized that I hadn't posted them yet! So here they are.

 I'm thinking about making art-print bookmarks like these to put up in my Etsy Shop. I'm not sure how well they would do, but there's only one way to find out, right? Here are some close-ups of the stamps I used for each bookmark:
 Stamp: "Toby Looking Up" by Alpha Stamps
 Stamp: "Wombat" by Kira Nichols for Stampotique
 Stamp: "Floating Dog" by Kira Nichols for Stampotique
 Stamp: "Whisker Monster With Sign" for Stampotique
 Stamp: "Hug Monster" by Kira Nichols for Stampotique
Stamp: "Shouting Bird" by Kira Nichols for Stampotique

So I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! I, for one, caught another cold/bug/sickness. That's about once a month for the last 6 months. Blergh. My immune system is shoddy, booooo. But I am feeling a little better. I've got too many things I want to do! I've got no time for being sick :)

Have a super-d-duper weekend! Go out and enjoy life... I will be trying to, and in between I'll still be feeding this little featherball:
He is doing great, by the way, we've had him for two whole weeks. He's always hungry, but not eating on his own yet. It's hop, hop, hop, chirp, chirp chirp, mouth open, feed, feed, feed. I think he's realized he can get an easy meal by cheeping and pestering me and opening his mouth real wide. How can I resist shoveling food down that little beakhole? I thought he would be attempting to eat on his own more and more, but not yet. Dear baby bird's big-grown-up-bird instinct: Take over, please! He is a lot of work, but I kinda love this featherball. Love him as I do, I can't wait till he is ready to fly free!

I love the bookmarks! And yes, little birds just eat chirp, eat chirp, eat chirp, poop, eat, eat, eat, chirp... :)

I would have a hard time hiding those in a book. Although, what a visual treat it would be each time the book was opened!

Love your bookmarks.

Why would little bird WANT to fly free when he's getting so much love and care?
