Cupcake Bookmark

I confess, I am a bookaholic -
and yesterday I bought a fresh new supply of novels
to get me through the next few weeks.
One of them was Stieg Larsson's, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
This is the first of a crime thriller trilogy.
Has anyone else read them?
I would be interested in what you thought.

Anyhoo - I thought it would be a good idea to make a bookmark.
I am entering this for this week's
Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge.
The theme is 'masking',
and you could win the cutest House Mouse stamp.
Check out the DT work for some really awesome cards.

I used the cupcake stamps from Simon Says Stamp,
masking each one as I went along,
then coloured them with whispers pens, and cut them out.
I layered them onto the design paper, which is
DCWV Nana's Nursery baby Girl.
Card candy and ribbon are from my stash.

Ooohh this looks so yummy! I love the sparkle an the images are great. I should make muself a book mark as I love reading too but have been using a scrap of paper for a while now as lost my book mark :( I have not read those books but did see them advertised the other day and thought about buying them. Let me know if they are worth investing in :)
Thank you for joining us at stampin' for the week end and good luck.
