Craft-Dee BowZ Spring Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
It's spring, finally, and welcome to the CDB Spring Blog Hop. If you hopped her from Brenda's blog then you are in the right place, otherwise you may want to start at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to become eligible for the Craft-Dee BowZ prize of the great bow maker tool.

I hope you've been inspired so far and I thought since spring is here, at least that's what they keep saying, I thought butterflies and flowers would be in order.


I recently added an embossing folder to my collection, it has butterflies on it and I thought it fit the theme, perfectly. The stamped image is one for Northwoods. They always have beautiful images, don't they!! That background paper is so dreamy and its from Prima, its called Firefly. And the butterfly is also from Prima.

The bow maker tool is so easy to use and lets you go from bow challenged to a  bow making expert starting with your first bow. Small, easy to use and gives you the option of many different bow styles. I use this tool on almost every card I make.


Thanks for taking the time to join us for the first blog hop. Please remember to comment here on my blog and then leave one last comment over at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog  to be eligible for the prize.  We value all of your comments!!

Here are the design team members in case you get lost.

** Patti ** Amber ** Brenda ** Barbara (you are here) **

The winner will be announced on Saturday at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog, so check back there to see if you are the winner.

I am entering my creation in the following challenges


Thanks for participating in our blog hop. Have a great day.

This card is to die for Barbara. You have a great color sense and I love all the "action" going on with this card. So, so beautiful -- and you take bow making to another level. Great job!

Barb, you always make beautiful bows. I wish I could make them too. Your pink bow is so beautiful and elegant.

Barbara, your card is gorgeous! I love the stamp from Northwoods, the butterfly from Prima, and, of course, that puffy bow. I think I need a bow maker (after all of these years!!).

Brenda said...

Pretty - lots of details and love the bow.
