Teddy and his Candy Cane

Hello Everyone

 Lil Patch of Crafty Friends has a new challenge that starts today
The sponsor is Imagine That

The prize is a $12.00 gift coupon to their digi shop

Since Christmas will be upon us sooner vs later, I decided to make a holiday/winter card.

And what a cute image for the upcoming holidays.

Since the teddy is sitting on a pile of snow, 
I decided to use punched snowflakes 
and I also used a snowflake embossing folder on the silver CS 

That cute image really required very little coloring (IMHO)
So this can be a card done quickly

Stamps:  Digital - Imagine That - Candy Cane Teddy
Paper/Card Stock
: Blue CS, White CS, Silver CS, 
Dies Used: Spellbinders Ovals sm   
Accessories: Snowflake punch - Martha Stewart, sentiment - Sticker(Stamp On It)

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

You're Special

Hello everyone
Welcome back. It's time for Craft-Dee BowZ Inspiration Tuesday
I received four new die sets the other day and decided to use one of those sets.
I pared the new die cuts with an old image
Let me share my card with you.

I know we just cruised into summer
 but I thought I'd use this pretty sunflower image, 
it really reminds me of fall.

Here is a closer view of my bow.

My bow is just a single loop bow.
 I  wanted something simple and not over powering

When You Wish Upon a Star

Hello Everyone,

As I started to write this post I had a scary thought.
Six months from today, we will be celebrating January 1, 2020. 
WOW what an eye opener that is.

OK now that I got your attention, LOL, 
I want to share with you my cute card, 
and no it's not a Christmas or a winter card.

I have a friend that celebrated her birthday, yesterday, and as I made this card,
for my Craft-Dee BowZ post
I thought it would make a darling birthday card.
So my friend will be getting this card for her birthday when we get together

It's time for the start of the monthly challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ
The sponsor for July is none other than

Her  digital images can be found here 
She has lots of cute images.
Please take a few minutes and check out what she has to offer

I am using
Moon Fairy Snow Globe
from her snow globe collection
You will have to check them out, they are all adorable.

As I was coloring the image it made me think of  the song
"When You Wish Upon A Star"
so that's how I came up with the sentiment

Here is a closer view of that image

My bow has 2 components for this card. Bakers twine and a sheer dotted ribbon bow,

First I made my sheer ribbon bow (just a single loop bow)
and next I made the bakers twine bow  (about 6 loops).
I stacked the twine bow on top of the ribbon bow and tied them together
The twine bow just needed a little umph
so I used that sheer bow to give the finished bow
 that little "added extra something". LOL

Of course bows are so easy to make using
