Christmas Shopping!

Talking about Christmas shopping...I haven't done much this winter since 2019 was a crazy year with moving across country and trying to get the house in order. We moved from Phoenix to rural Kentucky where we now have over 3 acres of land. Both Tim and I got our own 'workshops' with mine being an art studio while his is a true workshop full of machines and tools. My studio is now set up and after working all day at my new job, I enjoy an hour or two each evening crafting. 

It's good to be back and with my favorite team, Craft-Dee BowZ.  This week is the fourth Tuesday of the month (and Christmas Eve!), and it's my week to post a card.  I love winter cards and I used a Sherri Baldy image and lots of die cuts an embossing folder, pearls, a jewel in the center of my bow and some beautiful papers.

Here's a close-up of my image and I colored her with Copics. I had stored my Copics for almost 2 years and so far I've run into only one that needed to be filled. I'm pretty surprised and delighted that they survived being in storage in a garage in Phoenix for 9 months and then the garage in Kentucky for 13 months. 

And here's my satin double looped bow made with my bow tool. My bow tool is a small, handy tool that guarantees me a great bow every time! If you don't have one and like to use bows on your projects, you need this tool!  And if you have one and use it, you can attest that it is a great tool for your craft space!

Here's what the Craft-Dee BowZ tool looks like. It's small, compact and ready to use!

I hope my card has inspired you and although there's only a week left in the month to join our challenge, our ANYTHING GOES challenge is open to everyone and you don't need a bow on your project anymore, although we adore our ribbons here on Craft-Dee BowZ!  

Remember, our sponsor this month is LeAnn's World and the winner gets their choice of 3 images!

Thanks for stopping by!
