You are awesome !!

It is Tracey here with my inspiration project for this month.... I have used a sweet digi image from Mo Manning  called Fabulous  which i have colored up with my Promarkers. I used Sue Wilsons pierced rectangle dies to create the frame around her .The stamped sentiment is an old one from docrafts.

The flowers are all from Wild orchid. . The flourish die is one i had free from a craft magazine a long time ago and it has been a very handy die indeed .

The pretty bow was created using my CraftDeeBowz bow making tool which you can find Here. It is my go to bow making tool as it is so easy to use .

I hope you like my project and that you join us in the monthly challenge where anything goes with a handmade bow
Happy Crafting
Tracey xx

Serenity Fairy Wishes Photo Album

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

I needed a birthday gift for a very dear cousin so I decided to create a Photo Album.  I wanted to use some fairy images because my cousin owns her own Plant Rental Company on a very popular island here in the states.  My thought was to create something that had to do with plants and gardens, thus the idea of fairies, right.

My images are the Serenity Fairy collection from Polkadoodles and can be found here.  The album design is Laura Dennison's Z-Flap.

I colored all of the fairy images with my copics.  Here is one of my favorite images.  You can find more images on my blog.  I don't want to bore you here.

Here's a close up of the bow.

I hope that you enjoy looking at this creation.  Thanks for stopping by.

You're the Best

Welcome back, everyone.

Barbara here. Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. The weather could have been a little better here in my area, but at least we are in the spring season now, (I think).

Today is Tuesday and that means it's inspiration time here at Craft-Dee BowZ. Each Tuesday the designers are sharing some more inspiration with you. It's my turn since it's the first Tuesday.

Since it's been rainy (and snowy) and we're are into spring, I thought I'd use this cute rain boot with flowers image from the Bugaboo digital line.This image is called Spring Boot, very appropriate don't you think!!

Here is a closer view of this bow. 
My vision in my head of this bow was not how it turned out but, I like the look it is giving me.

Jump on over to my blog for additional as to how this bow became this way.

Don't forget, the Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes handcrafted bows so easy for you.
Order yours today. Click on the Buy Now button here on the left sidebar.

It comes with written instructions but if you are move of a visual learner we have you tube videos that walk you thru making a bow.

Next Tuesday, Kathy will be popping in with her project.

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Have a great week.

Get Well Wishes

It's my Tuesday to post at Craft-Dee BowZ and I needed a get well card for my daughter who had surgery so I made this to cheer her up. I used this adorable image from Whipper Snapper, and really did stamp an image rather than use a digital stamp!  I love to stamp and enjoy the old fashioned red rubber stamps! 
This card was so much fun to make since Stephanie loves girly cards. I pulled out my lace and pearls, my flowers and satin ribbon and this pretty die. Green is her favorite color, so although St. Patrick's Day is over, she got a green get well card. Stephanie has red hair and she has 6 kitties and I colored them to match her kitties in real life.
I made a triple looped satin bow and added pretty pink and white flowers above it.  I used my bow tool to make this bow and it came out with perfect, uniformed sized loops. Making bows is so easy with my bow tool!
Have you had a chance to follow Craft-Dee BowZ and see the pretty creations from the team members posted each Tuesday?  If you have a chance, please stop by here and take a look!
