Heaven and Nature Sing

Hello Everyone,

Do you know it's just 6 weeks til Christmas?  Whew, where has this year gone????? card 

It's the 1st Tuesday of November and that means it's time for me share a Craft-Dee BowZ project

I'm in the Christmas mode so I want to share a card that is in the Christmas spirit.

Beccy's Place is the sponsor for the November challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ

The prize is 1 digital set
The challenge runs until Nov.29 so you have plenty of time to create something and enter it.

Since we are really in the Christmas season already, I decided to make a Christmas card and I decided to use a bird image. I love birds and this one really caught my eye.

This cutie is in the Baby Robin set
1 bird and 4 sentiments come in this set
and the bird can be used the year round.

I used colored pencils to color this bird. Gamsol was used to blend/shade. In my humble opinion, colored pencils used with gamsol offer a great way to blend/shade and to go from one color to another seamlessly. I feel I have more control with pencils and gamsol.

 I decided to use just a 2 loop bow on this card. 
Here's a closer look

 If you struggle with making a bow, let me suggest the Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool.  It can make a bow anywhere from 1" to 4" in size. The tool is handy, portable and it's a tool that is so easy to use. Besides the instructions that accompany the tool itself, there are online videos that make it easy to follow along.

To order your very own, 
visit the Craft-Dee BowZ blog and the ordering spot is on the left sidebar.
These make great Christmas gifts, too.

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping in today

I'll be back soon
