Santa is Coming!

This is my week to post at Craft-Dee BowZ and our challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. I chose this awesome stamp and matching die of Santa by Art Impressions for my card. I love Christmas and winter cards. It's my favorite season and for a good reason...it's the coolest time here in Phoenix and we get to wear sweaters!  We don't get snow in Phoenix, but we can drive just 2 hours and head to Flagstaff--just north of us--and snow ski!  But here in the desert, winter time temps can be as high as 85! I'll never forget Christmas of 1988 when it got up to 85 and we were all running around in shorts, tank tops and flip flops!  That might sound good to you but remember that our temps have hit 123 in the summer!
My bow is a triple loop and it's 'wired' ribbon which means there's a thin wire through it. It helped this bow keep this shape, which reminded me of ribbon candy. The red and white reminded me of candy canes. Making this bow was super easy using my bow tool. The red jewel in the middle was the perfect touch to this awesome bow. The die cut word "snow" is slightly hidden but is cut out of red metallic paper, just like the giant snowflake behind my Santa's head. I used white glitter as well as white embossing powder on my card.
Our sponsor this month is Kinda' Cute by Patricia. The prize to our winner is three images from Kinda' Cute.

Have you had a chance to check out the blog each Tuesday this month to see the Team's creations?  I hope you'll join us this month at Craft-Dee BowZ for our ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HAND MADE BOW challenge!
