Happy Easter!

Good morning! It's my week to post on Craft-Dee BowZ and I'd like to share an Easter card that I made with you. The image is from Crafty Sentiments. Our challenge is closing in just 2 days and it's ANYTHING GOES, so please get your entries posted quickly!

After I made this card, I realized the image wasn't of bunnies but was of dogs. As far as I'm concerned, they still look like bunnies to me. I added sequins and a bit of glitter to this card and happy spring papers!

I love the green bow I made with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool. It's a double looped gross grain ribbon and it came out perfect using my Bow Tool. Do you have one yet? They're a wonderful tool to add to your crafting supplies! They're small, lightweight and make all the different sizes I've ever needed!

Our sponsor this month is Fred She Said and the prize for the April top winner is a $10 gift certificate to their store! Have you looked at their images

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and that you're enjoying spring! Remember, our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES and closes in just 2 days so please enter immediately!

                                                                       Thanks for stopping by!

With Love Spring Card

Hello and Kathy here, it's my Tuesday to post for some inspiration.  

For my hosting project, I created this C&S design (based on a design from Nichol Sphor), using die cuts and patterned papers from the Spellbinders 2020 April Card Kit collection.

Here is a close up of the bow.

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Fred She Said.

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,

Just For You

Welcome to the first Tuesday of April.

Barbara here, and seems like it was just yesterday 
I was posting the March First Tuesday post. 
Time has flown for me.

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy 
during these extremely trying times.
So, with that in mind, 
let's shut out the troubled world for a few minutes.

Since we are 3 weeks into spring 
and warmer weather has arrived here in my neck of the woods, 
I decided to use a flower stamp I just received from Rubbernecker.

Here is my card.
Click here  to go to my blog for more info about my card 
and what I used to make it.

My bow - I used Hug Snug Seam Binding (my fav) 
and of course, the Craft-Dee BowZ  bow making tool.
The bow for this card is a 3 loop bow .

Here is a closer view of the bow.
 Do you have your CDB tool yet?? No???
This tool is smaller, easy to use, travels well and it's easy to store.
It will make bows from 1" to 4 1/2"

You can order yours by clicking on the Buy Now button 
here on the left sidebar.

Just a reminder - 
The April Craft-Dee BowZ challenge has started and runs thru April 29.
The theme is always - Anything Goes
You could be the next winner,
We are looking forward to your submission.

That's it for now
Stop back next Tuesday to see what Kathy has come up with
for her Inspiration Tuesday project.

Have a great week and stay safe everybody!!
