You're Special

Hello everyone
Welcome back. It's time for Craft-Dee BowZ Inspiration Tuesday
I received four new die sets the other day and decided to use one of those sets.
I pared the new die cuts with an old image
Let me share my card with you.

I know we just cruised into summer
 but I thought I'd use this pretty sunflower image, 
it really reminds me of fall.

Here is a closer view of my bow.

My bow is just a single loop bow.
 I  wanted something simple and not over powering

When You Wish Upon a Star

Hello Everyone,

As I started to write this post I had a scary thought.
Six months from today, we will be celebrating January 1, 2020. 
WOW what an eye opener that is.

OK now that I got your attention, LOL, 
I want to share with you my cute card, 
and no it's not a Christmas or a winter card.

I have a friend that celebrated her birthday, yesterday, and as I made this card,
for my Craft-Dee BowZ post
I thought it would make a darling birthday card.
So my friend will be getting this card for her birthday when we get together

It's time for the start of the monthly challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ
The sponsor for July is none other than

Her  digital images can be found here 
She has lots of cute images.
Please take a few minutes and check out what she has to offer

I am using
Moon Fairy Snow Globe
from her snow globe collection
You will have to check them out, they are all adorable.

As I was coloring the image it made me think of  the song
"When You Wish Upon A Star"
so that's how I came up with the sentiment

Here is a closer view of that image

My bow has 2 components for this card. Bakers twine and a sheer dotted ribbon bow,

First I made my sheer ribbon bow (just a single loop bow)
and next I made the bakers twine bow  (about 6 loops).
I stacked the twine bow on top of the ribbon bow and tied them together
The twine bow just needed a little umph
so I used that sheer bow to give the finished bow
 that little "added extra something". LOL

Of course bows are so easy to make using

Time for Paper Dolls

Hello Crafters,
Did you ever play with paper dolls??  
I did when I was a little girl. Bet you did too. 
Gee, I guess I'm dating myself, LOL. 
Oh well age is just a state of mind (IMHO)

The stamp club that I belong to, has a theme card that we are to bring each month. 
(Check out the post here that displays my theme card I made for the June theme)
We also have a challenge item that we must work with 
and we then bring that to the club meeting.
At the May meeting we were given 
 a Graphic 45 12X12 paper
Penny's Paper Doll Family (2017)

We were to use images from that sheet 
and come up with a card 
or some other project 
and bring it to the 
June meeting

Here is a pic of the 12X12 G45 sheet we were given

This is the cutest paper. 
It would be perfect for a little girl to play paper dolls. 
It contains a couple of dolls and hats, bows and dresses.
 And even some flowers.

Well I decided to make a card and use a pretty die from Becca Feeken
to show off the cute doll image. 
Recently, I came upon some urn and sentiments images
 from years ago from Flower Soft. 
(Unfortunately they are no longer available.)
The flowers on the G45 sheet looked great growing out of that urn image. 
My sentiment is also from Flower Soft from years ago.

Paper/Card Stock: Graphic 45  Penny's Paper Doll Family (2017), White CS
Dies Used:  Spellbinders - Cascading Grace (Amazing Paper Grace)
dimensional foam, urn and sentiment from Flower Soft (old)

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

Hope you liked my paper doll card.

Thanks so much for stopping in today.

I'll be back soon
