Hi All
It is time for another fun blog hop at Craft-Dee Bowz.The theme for the Dt this month is Pretty in pink [Breast Cancer Awareness] so for my Dt project I have made this cute easel card and matching little gift box. I used  a fab digi image from saturated canary called Boobie love .I coloured her with promarkers. I used fight like a girl  digi  papers from Raspberry road .The embossing folder I used for the sentiment that says hope and ribbon shaped gems are  from my Mpp pack from my Craft-dee bowz boss ....Thanks Donna.
The frame around the image is from spellbinders.The flowers are from wild orchid.The butterflies are made using a woodware punch.The flourishes are from memory box.The curvy keepsake die I made the cute box with is from Stampin up.I just decorated it to match and added a computer generated sentiment I in a heart shape and I also added a cute ribbon charm my DT pal Gail sent me to use this month ...Thanks Gail. I made a beautiful 4 looped ow using my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Maker .I use this handy tool for EVERY bow I make ,small or large as it makes the perfect  bow every time and so easily

steampunk .....

It is my turn to show you my project  for the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog...The challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ for you this month is as usual:  ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW.

The theme for the DT this month is  "Steampunk" .I have made this card and gift bag for you using a cute digital image from Stitchy bear BbCakes called steampunk hat .I coloured her with promarkers .The large clock die cut is from Tim Holtz and sizzix.I also used a TH clocks embossing folder.which I have distressed with distress ink.The papers are from Tim Holtz also are the metal embellishments...I have a bit of a Tim Holtz fest going on.!!! 
The Hessian I used for the back panel and gift bag  and the lovely twine ribbon were sent as part of my monthly MPP. I made a cute  draw string gift  bag to match .

The jute/ string  ribbon was turned into a perfect bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ BOW MAKER. This amazing easy to use tool turns out perfect bows every time no matter what size or what type of ribbon or string you use as you can see from the tiny twine bow I made to hang the key from.

Here are  close ups of the fab bows...

Craft-Dee Bowz challenge project

Hi all
It is time for another challenge over at Craft-Dee Bowz...
WOW THE MONTHS ARE FLYING BY ...The theme of the challenge is as always Anything goes with a handmade bow..The DT have made some amazing projects for your inspiration this month so 

do pop over and have a look at their individual projects ...You will be amazed.

For my DT project this month I have made this cute card and tea-light holder .I used Graphic 45 papers from the time to flourish pad. The cute image is a digi from Tiddly inks. I coloured  her with promarkers.The flowers are handmade using stamps and dies from the sunflower collection at heartfelt creations.I used distress inks to colour them.The jar was an old coffee jar I had in my stash so I recycled it to make a candle holder ...perfect for a BBQ table if you put a citronella tea-light candle in it as it keeps the bugs away and looks really pretty if you have a few all lit at nightfall
I used twine and a cute gem
The pretty flower gem ,silver charm and beautiful ribbon were
all from my monthly MPP pack from my CDBZ BOSS ..I used my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ
Bow maker .It is so easy to make perfect bows time after time with this handy portable tool .I would be lost without mine that's for sure !!
