Little bookmark

Good morning everyone...
How was your weekend? Mine was good ... starting on Friday evening when I went to see Joe Longthorne   here in Liverpool ... It was a lovely evening in an intimate little place and the first time I had seen Joe in years ... he was obviously out of the circuit following his illness but having had a life saving bone marrow transplant he is making a come-back. In case you don't know who he is ... he is an impersonator of famous singers .. if you shut your eyes you are listening to Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond ... Tom Jones ... He looks more frail but his voice is as strong and powerful as ever ... Yep,it was a lovely evening.
Yesterday it was so dull and rainy here ...  I did the only thing a Brit would probably do ... I packed us a picnic and off we went .. into the countryside and ended up at a place called Lady Heyes ... A collection of antique and vintage stores ... with a sewing, craft, and cake store to boot ... The sun did eventually come out and it was a lovely day ....
I managed to find time to make a little bookmark which has all the colours of the Play Date Cafe colour challenge ... 



Pretty tough challenge those colours ( for me anyway) ... so here's my book mark ...

This was tough to photograph as the shiny paper is actually sort of holographic ... you turn it one way and it is Turquoise ... turn it the other and it is neon pink  ... just right for the challenge ... so here's another picture that hopefully shows what I mean ...


Nothing really special but I wanted to take on the challenge ....
Hope to be back later .... enjoy your day

Till soon

Ros

What do you mean with nothing special? I think it IS special. I participate in the same challenge and I it was a tough one for me too. ( I prefer other colors :) )
But Ros this is beautiful; you did a fabulous job on this challenge!

Great tag! Lady Heyes is great for a good 'rummage' isn't it! I had a day out there not long ago. Well done for braving the roads in that horrendous rain, and thanks for playing along in the play date cafe :)
