Happy Christmas

Hello and Kathy here, it's my Tuesday to post for some inspiration.  

For my hosting project, I created this Simple little Christmas card using this cute little bird. 

 Here is a close up of the image that I colored using my copic markers.

 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Kinda Cute by Patrica.  

She has some adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.  Up next is Tracey.

Until next time,

All the Wonder

Hello and how's your day going???

Mine.... well not too good. I am so late with this post. I am so sorry. My days have gotten away from me. LOL

I made a super Christmas card and a few of my friends will be receiving this little, easy to make, card.

Flip the bird flap back and the card can be opened.

Here is the card opened
And here is a closer view of that bow on the card front. 

This card looks so nice with a smaller bow. 
I made a double loop and it's just the right size and fullness.
Not too overwhelming. 

I think this design is perfect for an A-2 size card. 
A little card with a bigger punch.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool gives you the ability to make your bow smaller or larger. 
You have great flexibility. 

Need one?? order one today, just 
go to the left sidebar and order yours.
Treat yourself to an early Christmas gift

Hope you enjoyed this card. 

Stop in Next Tuesday to see what Kathy has in store for you.

Happy Halloween!

I'm not one to celebrate Halloween anymore since the kids have all grown up and moved away. But, this little image from Conie Fong was too cute to pass up! It's my week to post at Craft-Dee BowZ and our challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HANDMADE BOW.
 I colored my image with Copics and found this awesome paper pack in my stash. I added a die cut of a tree, some black lace, some awesome roses and punched out some leaves from the same paper as the oval die behind my image.
Here's my pretty double looped satin bow and I glued this great witch hat charm in the middle of it. Making bows is so easy with my bow tool. If you make bows for your cards, you really need to get this cute and compact bow tool!
Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo. The winner of this challenge will receive 4 images of the winner's choice!  I hope you've had a chance to look at the creations by Barb, Tracey and Kathy this month and that you've gotten your card posted to our challenge. Our challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HAND MADE BOW!
                                                                    Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Sis

Wow the months are flying by . I love this time of year it is my favorite season. I love all the colors when the leaves change ,so pretty.
This months inspiration card is actually the card i made for my sister who is actually  75 yrs young today. She adores butterflies so there had to be one on her card .

I used a beautiful postcard stamp with the butterfly on it from Joy crafts but i cut an extra butterfly out and added it for dimension.
The papers are from Crafters companion shabby chic collection.The flowers are from wild orchid.

The bow was formed using delicate organza ribbon and my Craftdeebowz bow maker ,you can get one for yourself and the details are in the left hand side bar

The sentiment is computer generated . i love the dimension this card has and the soft colours make it feel so feminine and pretty

I hope you like the card and that you join us in the Anything goes with a handmade bow challenge this month
Happy Crafting
