I Love You to the Moon and Back!

Hi friends.  Today I a fun Valentine’s card for you in one of my favorite color combos.  Don’t you just love the bold look of red and black together with a few splashes of white?
My friend Ginny created the fun chalkboard digi sentiment.  You can view her fun digital collage sheets over on her Etsy shop Polly’s Paper.  You know I love having great digital collage sheets on hand to whip up a quick card.
Sometimes a small subdued bow is in order.  I think this double-looped bow made from black 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon is perfect for this card.  It was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For video tutorials for making gorgeous bows, visit my YouTube channel.

Happy Birthday Wishes to You and a Bow-it-All V2.0 Double-Loop Double Layer Bow Video Tutorial

Hi there everyone.  Can you ever have enough birthday cards?  I think not!  I always start out the year in good shape, but things fall apart about half way through, so I’m trying to get some birthday cards done ahead.  This one already went to my wonderful SIL, but I WILL get ahead this year if it kills me!
Today I’m playing along with the weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge.  The theme this week is Add a Flourish. That one’s easy.  I LOVE flourishes!
I have a video tutorial for Cheery Lynn Designs Sweet William flowers HERE if you have not already seen it.  
Is anyone interested in a video on how I made these fantastic Gardenia flowers?  Is so, please leave a comment below.
My double-loop double-layer bow was made with White Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This ribbon is my all time favorite ribbon for tying gorgeous puffy bows.  I’m including a video below to show you how I create this wonderful bow.
