Two in One Challenge Completed!

I am so behind on challenges. The wedding really set me back, but I was able to get two in one finished with a project I had to complete anyways. Love it when that happens. So this little bookmark meets the requirements of Carmen's Quote/Verse Challenge and the Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge. I was down for the Book Theme Basket for the Silent Auction our ladies are doing at my church, and I needed to make a bookmark. I used With Sympathy and Everyday Blessings. I colored over the butterfly with a Stardust clear pen. It doesn't show at all in the photo, but in real life it is quite dazzling.
And here is the completed basket. I typed up the items in the basket on my computer, cut it out using Labels One and tied it onto the basket with hemp twine. I made a Stationary Basket as well. I will be sharing that with you next week.

The weather here is finally sunny. It is so nice to wake up and see the sun and not have to where a jacket when you go outside. The flowers are blooming and the grass is green. I just love spring.

Have a beautiful weekend!
