Hello Friend

Hello Everyone,

Happy hump day to all!! Hope your Wednesday is going well. 

Beverly Cole, artist of all the images at The Artsystamper shop over at Etsy, has just introduced a new set just in time for fall. It's named The Friendly Scarecrow . Lots of cool B&W as well as color  elements in the set.

The scarecrow was really calling my name so I thought he'd look great on a card.

I hand drew the plaid lines on the shirt just to add some additional interest to Mr. Scarecrow.

Time for Fall and Pumpkins

Welcome to my Craft-Dee BowZ Inspiration Tuesday post for October. Do you believe it, Fall is really here!!!

Every Tuesday the designers all take turns posting an inspiration project for your viewing pleasure.You can view their projects on the individual designers' blog or you can check out the project over at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog

For todays card I decided to make a card depicting pumpkins and giving the feel of fall. This time I used Bakers Twine in an orange shade instead of using ribbon. 

Let me share my card with you

Pumpkins always remind me of fall so
 I used an image from Bugaboo that fit the bill

Here is a closer view of my bow.

This is a multiple loop bow and 
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool  to make it using this bakers twine. 
Works great with the twine,too.

The CDB tool really aides me in making all my bows.
And you don't need to use ribbon. 
My bakers twine bow is a perfect example

Do you have your CDB tool yet?? No???
This tool is smaller, easy to use, travels well and it's easy to store.
It will make bows from 1" to 4 1/2"
You can order yours by clicking on the 
Buy Now button here on the left sidebar.

Just a reminder - 
The October Craft-Dee BowZ challenge has started and runs thru October 30.
The theme is Anything Goes (no bow required)
You could be the next winner,
We are looking forward to your submission.
