Holley's Bookmark Making Contest

I'm joining Holley's month long celebration for 6 years of seizure free health following 2 brain surgeries.  You can read Holley's incredibly inspiring story HERE.  As part of her celebration, she is hosting a Bookmark Making Contest using a fabulous stamp designed just for her by Sandra Caldwell.  This sweet stamp is called Bearly A Headache.

Here's a closeup of this cutie.  She's colored with Copics and sitting on a stack of books that is unnamed in my files, but is perhaps from Tiddly Inks.  I really didn't mean to color this so dark, but the library stack back ground, a freebie from Go Make Something, sort of dictated the colors.  I do really love the sights and smells and general ambiance of and old library, don't you?  The sentiment is computer generated excerpts from a quote I found. So there ya go.  Come join the fun at Holley's and wish her all the best.  (FABBY PRIZES ALL MONTH LONG!)

I'm also entering this in the DL.Art February Linky challenge, and the Outlawz Paper a la Mode Tag, You're It Challenge.
