A Bookmark ... perhaps a Father's Day gift

Good afternoon.  Its such a lovely day here today!  This morning my 2 year old daughter and I gardened and chased the chickens.  We have two chickens that roam around our back yard and my daughter adores them.  They are tame enough for her to catch and hold.

Thankfully she is having a nap ... and I got some time to do some colouring.

I have created a lovely bookmark.  I'm thinking of sending this to my Dad for Father's day as he loves to read and is currently studying as well.

I have used the superb Tiddly Inks Aiden image.  I think he is just lovely and quite versatile.  I have embossed the background using a cogs embossing folder as I thought it reflected the study of science and mechanical things and then ran some green ink around the white base card.

I couldn't find a sentiment stamp that was suitable .. so I wrote my own.  It is something that I say to myself often ... as it reminds me that to learn and experience things I have to be willing to listen and try.

So without further waffle ... here is my bookmark.

I would like to enter this bookmark in the following challenges:-
Tiddly Inks Challenge - Back To School 
Scrap Creations - Back To School
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything But A Card

Hope to be back tonight :)  I hope you are enjoying your day/night wherever you are.
