Happy birthday

Hi .
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project.
I have made a pretty box and card combo using Creative Expressions dies for the flowers, for the  main decorative die , for the square frames and the embossing detail in the back is also a folder from Creative Expressions.. Sometimes just using die cuts is all you need to make a pretty card . The ribbon was formed into this pretty bow using my CraftDee Bowz bow maker which makes beautiful single or multi looped bows  or tassells every time with no fuss at all.

I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to join us in this months challenege
I look forward to seeing your entries
Happy crafting

A Basket of Flowers

For my hosting project, I created this 3D project using  the Large (Bike) and Small (Besties Forever) July Die of the Month Clubs.  I just adore this bike and the dog is so stinking cute.  There is also a cat that comes with the small die set as well. If you are not familiar with the Large and Small die clubs, they are awesome.  You always get a ton of dies for the amount of money you spend.

 Here is a close up of the dog that I created with the small die kit.  And a close up of the bow that I created using my 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 Patties Creations.  

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. 

Until next time,
