Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone

Barbara here
Welcome back for another Tuesday inspiration. 
This is the last Tuesday of this month 
and I thought I'd pop in and show you my card real quick.

This month's sponsor has been Cute As A Button 
and I thought I'd finish out the month 
using another darling digi from her shop

I used the digi Sleigh Ride, 
and just thought she was adorable. 
Hope you like her.

I had some snowflake DP in my stash 
and thought it would look nice with the theme.

I added some glittery snowflakes around her and added my fluffy bow. 
That ribbon I used has a design embedded on it that looks like snowflakes, 
perfect for this card.

Click here and come over to my blog for additional info about my card.

Need a tool to assist you in your bow making??

Click on the Buy Now button on the left sidebar 
You will be glad you did.
Easy to use and  it comes with written instructions. 
There are You Tube videos
as well to guide you on how to make your bow.

The November challenge starts Friday so stop back and check it out.

Well that's it for now.

Thanks for stopping in

Snow Buddies

Hi all
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for The October challenge here at Craftdeebowz where the theme is "Anything goes with a handmade bow.."
 I thought i had better get a start on the Christmas cards early this year to save myself the last minute rush ..I have used the woodware Snowman Buddies stamp which i coloured with watercolour spectrum noir pens.I added puffy stuff to their hats that swells up when you heat it with a heat gun.

The background papers i created myself with an Artisan Design group Snowflake Stencil and distress inks .

The sentiment is a stamp  from Stampin up. The bow was created with my Craftdeebowz bow maker which creates easy perfect bows every time with no fuss

I hope you like my project and that you join us in the October challenge 
Happy crafting
Tracey x

Hello and Kathy here to post for some inspiration.

I created this Distressed Background card with dies from Spellbinders.  The theme for this card is for Halloween. I always have a house full for Halloween.  My nieces bring their children an some of my grandchildren come over for Trick or Treat.  I always end up making about 6lbs of chili and there is never even one bowl left.

I created the background by using distress inks to blend together to make it appear like night time.  Then I used the September Small Die of the Month to create this cute little skeleton and ghost trick-or-treaters.  Here is a photo of the 6x6 card I created.

 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.  I just love this polka-dot ribbon.

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge. Our sponsor for the this month is Cute as A Button.

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,
