Peace on Earth

Hi friends.  Today I have a clean and simple card to share with a fabby bow made from my favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Nothing like a ‘show stopper’ bow to add that extra zing to a clean and simple card.

My bi-color double-loop bow is made with Red Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Emerald Green Checkerboard Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  If you don’t have this tool yet, be sure to put it on your Christmas list.  You won’t be sorry!

New Thank You Themed Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Thank You themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

I think I have a new favorite Cheery Lynn Die – don’t you just LOVE that Margarita Border in red at the bottom of the card?!!  I know I have a new favorite every week – I just can’t help it!

The beautiful flowers were made with the Cheery Lynn Tea Rose dies in small and medium and another new find for me is the Pierced Plates that Cheery Lynn offers.  You can see it in the kraft cardstock in the top portion of my card.  It creates some beautiful texture for your card. 
I finished off my card with a perky double-loop bow made from Red Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I created the bow on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

Craft Hoarders Anonymous December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop!  
You should be coming from Donna’s Blog.  After visiting with me, hop on over to Wendi’s Blog next.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for a full Blog Hop list, go to Gloria’s Blog.

I am a hoarder of many crafty supplies and Christmas stuff is probably the worst!

I always start out with endless ideas and enthusiasm not remembering that I DON’T have endless time…  I have a bunch of Christmas ornament shaped dies that I have never used (this one is Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom ornament – 2011??  enough said!) so I decided to break one out today and make a 3-D ornament.  I couldn’t resist adding pretty Poinsettia Flowers created with the Poinsettia Strip from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My pretty double-loop double-layer bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 tool using Red Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I have included a video tutorial for you below.
