Hi Everyone

Holy Cow!! It's September 1st  already and fall will be here in no time flat!! School has already started here and probably most everywhere else, by now.

Speaking of the first of the month, it's time for the September challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. The theme is always "anything goes with a handmade bow". Hope you will submit a project this month, you could be the next winner.

Recently,I saw this design out on Pinterest and just had to try it. Not hard to do just a tad tricky and I am sharing the link to take you to Eileen Godwin's blog with her fabulous instructions. Hope you try
this card design out for one of your cards

 Craft-Dee BowZ sells the best bow making tool on the market and my orange sherbet colored bow was made using the CDB tool. For this bow, I used Washi Tape instead of ribbon. That's right, washi tape. I love the fact you can use Washi tape to make a bow. There are so many fabulous designs out there in Washi tape, now you have one more product besides ribbon to use to make a beautiful bow. Click here to watch Donna's  great video to walk you thru how this is done. It's really so easy.

Here is another view that shows the card design and bow from a different angle.

Stamps:  7 Gypsies by Hampton Art (Sorry no name on the set, set #IC0149)
Paper/Card Stock
: White, Purple, Celery Green
Ink: Memento - Grape Jelly
Dies Used: Memory Box - Woodland Branch, Blushing Bouquet
Washi Tape Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, glue Pen, Glitter

I am submitting this project in the following challenges:

Stop back tomorrow for my regular monthly Craft-Dee BowZ post.
We will be taking a trip to "Gai Paris" (as it's written in Paris).

What a beautiful card design. I adore the colors you chose for it and love that bow. Yes, hard to believe summer is on the wind down. I am not ready yet for it to leave though! It seemed way to short again.
