Daffodils

Hello there!  People who know me well know that I love reading, well last year two of my sister-in-laws and I started a bookclub along with some friends.  Each month we have a bookclub meeting and some times we have a theme for our meeting.  Some times it's according to what we decide to read for the month and some times it's not.  Well for the month of March we are planning on having a Spring/Yellow theme for our meeting and so I wanted to create a few gifts for each of the women in our group.
I'm also entering these two project in the Papertrey Ink 6 Year Anniversary Challenges that started on the 5th of this month. For my first project I used a PTI stamp sets Year of Flowers Collection and Garden Variety II along with the coordinating die and picket fence die to decorate a glassine bag (filled with lemon drops). I stamped the daffodil image from the set and colored it with Copic markers, then added my die-cut and stamped Garden Variety II seed packet frame and used the Year of Flowers Titles stamp set for the Daffodils along the bottom. At the top the top of my package I added a small die-cut Tiny Tag with a sentiment from the Friendship Jar Spring Filler set and a button.
For my next project, I created a spring bookmark.  I wanted to come up with a way to incorporate one of my favorite poems (yes I also love poetry/poetry books) and to use it on a bookmark but also use this daffodil image.  At first I was going to use vellum to create a pocket on the front of the bookmark but decide in the end to add a banner that I could attach my image to going down the front, which could be lifted or twisted in order to read the poem beneath.  To add some color on the actual poem I randomly stamped the same daffodil image in yellow.  You can click on the last photo on the bottom of this post to enlarge it so you're able to read the poem if you'd like.
Thank you so much for your visit!

I absolutely love this project and it makes me happy to look at in this post. I immediately pinned it so I could go back and recreate it. I love daffodils and I love yellow. I think I am craving anything that says "Spring" right now. As I type this it is snowing here where I live in east TN.
I also LOVE this poem, thank you for sharing it with the project. You do just beautiful work.
