 and this is the design I came up with.

Karate Requires Patience

Hello and welcome back to my blog!!

Well, it's the beginning of a new month. No April Fools here, LOL.

Since it's the first of the month that means it's time for the April challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ.
The challenge runs all month and the theme is always - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow

LeAnn's World101 is the sponsor over at Craft-Dee BowZ this month. The winner of the April challenge will receive 3 digital images of their choice 

I needed a boy card and thought this cute karate image would be perfect.

I had some paper that has a wood design on it and figured it would work perfect with my image.

On the internet, I found a cool saying perfect for the inside sentiment
and it seems to be a great fit for this card

And as far as a bow is concerned, I just used a single loop bow. Nothing frilly for a guy.

Here is a closer view of that bow.

I used my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
I don't know what I would do without it.
If you are bow challenged, then the Craft-Dee BowZ tool is just what you need.

Thank You

Hello Everyone and welcome back to my blog!!!

Today is the 1st Tuesday of the month, 
and it's the start of March's weekly Tuesday inspirations over at Craft-Dee BowZ.
I am slotted for the 1st Tuesday of each month

On our Tuesday posts we can present whatever.
It just has to have a bow on it.

I decided on a spring look with a hand cut trellis look
down the center

Here is my card. 

The trellis is hand cut. The vines/flowers are from the Heartfelt Creations Patchwork Collection. 
I colored the sprigs and gave them a slight shape and attached them to the card front, weaving them in and out of the open areas of the trellis.
For some added bling I added gold sequins to the flower centers.

My bow - it's a triple loop bow and its a light purple and is a perfect compliment to the flowers.
It's so easy to make a bow using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool. 
It comes with instructions and there are video's for those who like to "see" how to make the bows.
