Bella Sweet Tea

This is my second post today.  I'm here with a book mark I made for our challenge at 613 Avenue Create.   The challenge is Anything Goes but our optional twist is to create a RAK because February 17th is National RAK day!  In case you don't know a RAK is a Random Act of Kindness.  Just a little something to make someone's day maybe a little card for your favorite bank teller or a candy treat for the mailman, in my case I made a book mark for my elderly neighbor who loves to read  :)  

We have a new sponsor this week
Etsy Shop
 visit Faery Ink Designs 

I used the image Bell Sweet Tea. Colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, stamp by Mama Elephant - In My Heart set, dies by Spellbinders, MME paper, crinkle ribbon and a vintage WWII era button!

I bought a bag of misc. buttons at Savers (big chain thrift store) and these buttons were in the bag. On the card it's stamped "MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN".  Wow huh?  I hate to use them but I don't think they're really worth anything.  And I know my neighbor, who is 82, will appreciate the extra embellishment.  

Well thanks for stopping by again!  I appreciate the company  ;)  Stop by  613 Avenue Create and see what the other ladies have created this week!  Oh and you can see the awesome RAK I received this week from Sara on the DT!!  She is such an incredibly talented artist!

Made in Occupied Japan??? Wowza! You will have to save that button card... for what I'm not sure?! But add it to your stash or put it in your art journal. I am lovin' your new photography set up - I'm so lazy... I just throw it in my photo tent with the plain ole white background.
