Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season.  It's my week to post my creation at Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge Blog. My card for this post is one made by Bildmalarna, a stamp company that no longer exists. I love the stamps from this company and own a good many of them!
I colored my image with Copics and enjoyed using paint and glitter on the fur of her boots, coat and mittens. I added some extra 'snow' to the trees and ground, too. for the snow on the ground and on the trees.
My bow is very special....I made a 3" red bow and a 2 1/2" red bow and slid the smaller bow into the larger bow knot and got this awesome looking 4 loop bow. I LOVE how it came out and it is even prettier in person than in the photos.  My bow tool is the reason my bows are so pretty on every card. The loops come out even and smooth and with the help of the bow tool, every knot comes out perfect.
Our sponsor this month is Cute As A Button and the prize is 3 single images of the winner's choice!

Have you seen the other wonderful cards made this month by Barb, Kathy and Tracey? With a team of just 4, each Tuesday is a special day at Craft-Dee BowZ. Please take a look at the projects and if you have a moment, we'd love a comment or two!

Christmas Cutie

It is Tracey here with my inspiration post ....
I have challenged myself this year to use up some of the Christmas stash that I have had lurking around since last Christmas and I can honestly say I have ...hand on heart used last years stash  on this card. I used an image from Wee stamps .

The scalloped frame is a spellbinders die. The poinsettia flowers are handmade using a die set  from Marianne D designs [3 YRS OLD NOW !]

The papers are by Trimcraft and are from a year ago ...
The ribbon  has been turned into this beautiful double looped bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bowmaker [SEE SIDEBAR FOR DETAILS].
It creates beautiful bows every time with minimum effort

I hope you like my cute card and that you have a very Merry Christmas ...with your friends and family
See you next year

Ben the Penguin

Hello, Kathy here and it is my Tuesday to post for our Challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.

For my project I chose  Ben the Penguin from Mo's Digital Pencil which I  colored with my Copic Markers.  Took some card stock from my stash to layer my card with and added my colored image.

Created a bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  This awesome tool makes creating a bow easy peasy.  You can pick your very own tool up here.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card today, for more information, please visit my blog.  And please be sure to come by and join in with the December challenge that is going on right now, we look forward to seeing what you have created.

Also I would like to mention that our sponsor this month is Cute As a Button.  There are some really adorable images there so go grab some of them.

And remember to tune in for next Tuesday to see what Tracey has created.  I know it will be beautiful.
