Everything Matters

Hello Everyone.

Well we are thru with Christmas and now the next big card giving day is Valentines Day. The Craft-Dee BowZ design team will be posting Valentine projects all this month. Since it's the first Tuesday of the month, it's my turn to post. So let me start off the month with my card.

In looking at the "stuff" I haven't used in a long time, I got a few ideas to incorporate in my card.I decided to use my ribbon punch that I haven't used in eons. Next, I added a scored diamond pattern on the white panel and on the heart. (Haven't done that in eons, either). In threading my ribbon thru the punched openings, I folded the ribbon in half, since the ribbon was wider than the openings.

Here is a closer view of my bow. It's a double loop bow and my Craft-Dee BowZ tool made it so easy to make the bow.

Have you submitted a project to the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge this month?? The theme is always "Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow". Easy-peasy.

Just a reminder - we will be having our bi-monthly blog hop, and it starts Feb. 5 @ 10:00 p.m. et. Please mark your calendars and join us for more inspiration.
