Just For You

Hello Everyone,

Hey, thanks for stopping in today.

Since its the first Tuesday of the month,
it's time for my Inspiration Tuesday project
over at Craft-Dee BowZ

Now that April is here I decided to use a floral stamp.My stamp kind of reminds me of a dandelion which we all seem to fight throughout the warm weather season. I just got this stamp in a set that I ordered late last week from Rubbernecker.
Now I really didn't need a new stamp set, but I fell in love with the whole set
(organic set #3)

Let me share my card with you.


Let's check out The Bow

I decided to use a triple loop bow.
And I placed the bow on the side of the card. It was the perfect spot.

Here is a closer view of my bow.



I used a white Hug Snug Seam Binding for this bow. (One of my fav's)

I used my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool. 
Don't forget, the Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool 
is the best tool out there to aid you in making your bows.

The tool is small, easy to store, easy to use and so portable.
