It's Spring!

Hello, it's my week to post on Craft-Dee BowZ!  I am loving living in Kentucky and spring has arrived and with it, there are flowers all over and everything is so nice and green again!  Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES so quickly post your card since time is running out.

The image I used today is from Elisabeth Bell named Tummy Time. I made a fairly simple card and took out the sewing machine for this one.

I colored my image with Copics and added just a little sentiment.

My bow is triple looped and was so simple to make with my bow tool. I've always loved ribbons and bows and my bow tool simplifies making my bows without wasting any ribbon!

Our sponsor is Cute As A Button and the prize this month is 2 single images of the winner's choice! Have you looked at the images at Cute As A Button?  I'm sure you'll find many images that you love and it will be hard to pick just 2!

I hope you'll join us for our ANYTHING GOES challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ and I look forward to seeing your creations!

                                                                              Thanks for stopping by!

Hello .
It is time for my mid month inspiration project ..I have just bought a stunning paper pad and mould set from prima called the Midnight garden so i had to make a project using it. Here i have made a card that could be used for Anniversary/Weddings/valentine . i used papers and  ephemera tags to create a simple design in the bottom corner

The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed  with platinum wow  powder onto vellum which i then tore and wrapped around the card

I made a  flower from the prima mould and air dry paperclay , i also made a pretty Foamiran flower and 2  rolled roses from the paper pad to match ....

The bow was made using my trusty Craftdeebowz bow maker
I hope you like my card and that you join us in the challenge
Stay safe
Happy crafting

For my hosting project, I created this design, using all dies from my April 2020 Spellbinders Card Club Kit.  The theme for this card isjust Celebrate.  We all need to kick back and have a little fun during this time of the Pandemic.

 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.  I wanted to show you that you can make really small bows with the 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 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,
