Happy Winter!

It may be February, but it's still winter so I'm wishing everyone a Happy Winter!  It's the 4th Tuesday of the month and my turn to be highlighted at Craft-Dee BowZ .  I've made a card using this adorable Santa image and I cannot remember where I got it from! If you recognize this Santa, please write who made it in the Comments below and I'll add it to my post text. (I had thought it was High Hopes, but cannot find him on their website.)

I loved coloring this Santa with my Copics. Red can be such a challenge but it's the ONLY color that Santa can wear!  I used two pretty papers, some lace, ribbon, a snowflake charm, red pearls and my Merry Christmas stamp is from Stampin' Up. I used a die cut for the holly and assorted size punches to make all of the poinsettias.

My bow is a single looped satin ribbon. This ribbon made such a beautiful bow using my bow tool. I clipped the ends and love how perfect it looks! Tying the snowflake charm was just another pretty embellishment to add to this card.

Our challenge this month at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES and our sponsor is Cute As A Button. The prize is 2 individual stamps and if you haven't looked at the site of Cute As A Buttonyou might want to. There are so many adorable stamps by the artist/owner Francesca!

There's just a couple of more days to enter your project in our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ, and I hope you'll join us!

                                                               Thanks for stopping by!

A little cutie ...

Here is my mid month inspiration project for the  february challenge .The theme is Anything goes I have made this card using a digital image which i have had for so long that  i cannot remember where i got her from...sorry
I coloured her with promarkers and added some glittery sparkles to her wings

I made the flowers using a stamp and die set from joy crafts ..I coloured them with spun sugar distress ink ..This Pretty bow was made using my Craftdeebowz bow maker and some organza ribbon...I added a flower to the centre so it balanced the flowers on the left top corner of the project .

I hope you like my project and that you join us in the challenge this month

Just For You

Hello Everyone,

Hey its Tuesday, that means it's time for Inspiration Tuesday projects

Barbara here and since we have passed over in to February,
I decided to use a stamp that I have had for some time. 

It was buried in with all my floral stamps and it got neglected, 
so I thought I'd  showcase it for you today.

(Click here for more info about my card, it's over on my blog)

Let me share my project 

This a really pretty Poppy and it made me think of spring. 
We've had a warm couple of days so I am getting spring fever. 
Hey, check out my bow.
Here is a closer view of it.

My bow is a triple loop bow 
Sheer ribbon makes awesome bows and I 
used the Craft-Dee BowZ maker to make my bow

lt is the best bow maker tool out there.

It is smaller, easy to pack and take with you or store 
and it really enables you to make super bows. 

To order yours please click on the Buy Now button  here on the left sidebar.

Don't forget, the monthly challenge over here at Craft-Dee BowZ is going on right now
You still have plenty of time to get a project submitted
The theme is always Anything Goes (no bow required)

Our sponsor for the February challenge is Bugaboo
and you could be our next winner

We are looking forward to your entry

Stop back next Tuesday
 to look at Kathy's inspiration

Hope you can join us,
