Just because . . . .

I am trying desperately to think of something to say but it is only 5:00 a.m. and I have just woken up, I guess the brain is still in la la land <g>.  Ah thought of something :), do you have problems tying bows, I know I do.  The other week I found this fabulous addition for any craft room, it is called the Bow Easy and available for several supplies.  Here is a video on how to use it.  If you are like me and find tying bows full of trials and tribulations then this wee gadget is a must for you <g>.  I do find it somewhat fiddly to use but with the addition of a ribbon threader all wonders become possible.

  • Card cut out using my Black Cat,  the flower design is from IClipart which I converted to an svg, and formed the basis for the shape along with the cut out.
  • All card and papers used from Craft Creations
  • Digi 'Alisa with roses' from Mo's Digital Pencil
  • Ribbon, pearls and flower from my stash
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Wishing you all happy crafting days (((hugs)))) Mimi
