Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #56

Hi Everyone

It's time for a new challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. 
The sponsor for this challenge is 

I used the cutest image. This could be used with sentiments  of: I'm Sorry, Happy Birthday, Mother's Day, Hello, and I'm sure you can think of others.

That bouquet of flowers is so cool and this cutie looks like she's giving you that bouquet. 

I added some daisies and leaves to compliment that bouquet. 
I also picked up a new die frame with leaves in the corners 
and thought Winnie looked great in this frame. 
She looks like she is in a jungle of sorts 
or maybe she is at the flower shop buying that bouquet..

My background paper has a very faint design but it too has leaves and a few flowers on it. 
A perfect design to go with Winnie

Dies Used: Impression Obsession - Greeting Set

Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone and welcome back
Its the first Tuesday of the month  so that means its my turn to post over at Craft-Dee BowZ

A really good friend of mine is celebrating her birthday today,
 so the card I am showing you today is the card I made for her.

Since Beccy's Place it the sponsor over at Craft-Dee BowZ for April, I decided to use one of the images I have in my treasure trove of digital images.
(It's an oldie but a goodie, not available anymore)

I decided to use a floral image since we are in spring - it is spring isn't it??
 It's still cooler here in N.KY but supposed to get warmer and wetter. Oh well its not snow. LOL

I love this floral sprig. I actually used 2 sprigs, one is flipped to give me a mirror image. 
Then I arranged these to make it look like a really full bouquet.

That sentiment is a die cut,  I cut one in that light purple and I cut another in black. 
Then I mounted the two in an off-set manner.

Here is a closer view of my bow.
 I made 2 single loop bows, one a little larger than the other and stacked them. 
I just love this look and its so easy to do.

If you are bow challenged, like I used to be,
order a Craft-Dee BowZ tool here and you will be an expert in no time.

Let me show you the inside of this card.

The flower is just a portion of the original flower sprig, I needed to make the inside look great as well.

Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge - April

Welcome back

It's April 1st and there's no fooling here. LOL   
Today it's time for the April monthly challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ

April Sponsor - Beccy's Place

Beccy has a super array of digital kits and you are sure to find something to suit your needs.

Let me share my card with you

As I looked at this old pump I thought it would look great next to a tree. 
I used an embossing folder to add the tree. I colored the tree sponging brown to the trunk and limbs areas and used my Distresed Crayon - twisted citron - to paint the green on the leaves.

Let me show a closer view of the pump.

I love this image. Also, see those leaves falling, well I got a blob of green in 2 different spots so I just added some leaf shapes and made it look like leaves falling, no mistakes, just opportunities. LOL
Also I added some stones to the bottom of the image just to fill up the space at the bottom. 

Craft-Dee BowZ has the best bow making tool

I made a layered bow and added some leaves to the knot area for added interest.
