metal stamped bookmark

Hello!  I was really trying to be good today and start exercising again but I just could not get my laptop going so that I could watch a show while on my elliptical.  Maybe I was having a bad connection with Netflix but I know my laptop is also old and probably gonna conk out soon.  After about 20 minutes trying to fiddle with this and that, I gave up!  I had my shoes on and everything!  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Today's post is so fun for me.  It's more metal stamping but this time on actual metal instead of wood.

This is an aluminum bookmark that I stamped for my daughter.  It's a little smudgy looking after she used it.  I should've taken a picture before I gave it to her when it was all nice and polished.  I even stamped her name on the bottom but I smudged it on here.  I made 2 small purple pom poms too for fun.  

Here is a close up of the quote I stamped.  Funny?  I messed up a bit on the heart on the bottom but that is why I need practice.  But overall I'm pretty happy with how this turned out considering it was my first metal project.  It does require a lot more elbow grease to polish and do the stamping than paper crafts but the outcome of the project is so worth it.

I don't think I have another project to share after this.  I'm trying to recover from a cold and so my crafting has slowed down as well.  Hopefully I'll have more to share soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Neat bookmark! You need a portable tablet to carry around the house to watch netflix! Get well soon!
