Welcome back everyone,

I have been quiet lately, been getting ready for Stampaway. I will be teaching classes on Wed. and Thurs. and doing a M&T at the booth of  Simply Said Rubber Stamps on Friday evening. Busy busy. LOL

I have 3 posts all in a row  for you this week, and this is the first one.

And since this is August 1, and that means it's time for the new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. Their challenges are 1 month long and the theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
. I love that theme- it leaves that creative door wide open (so to speak)

Another thing I love is cats and I have had cats in my life since I was 3 years old. 
So when I spied this sweet image I just had to have it!!!

Have you checked out that bow?? 
Its what I call a triple layered stacked bow.
Here is a closer view of the bow. 

The card is a 5"X7" size and I wanted the bow to be prominent but not overpowering. 
So I thought the layered bow was perfect. It is about 5" long on that bottom ribbon layer and then the next two layers are a little shorter on each layer,
 and you know this bow is so easy to make with the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.

Don't have one - you can order your very own here

I'm definitely a cat girl, too. (I have 3 right now) And this image IS so sweet, I can definitely see why you had to have it. That bow is GORGEOUS (love the color) and the little paw prints are the perfect embellishments. Thanks for playing with Jo's Scrap Shack. Sorry I'm so late in commenting . . .
