How are you all doing today? I have a few treats for you today...a few things to share and a cute card that I created.
The first little treat I wanted to share is a wonderful video on how to tie bows and knots on your cards. Seems simple but I know I have struggled endless times and from doing Gatherings with bows involved...I know for a fact other people do too! So Dawn McVey has created a great video on how to tie bows...and let me tell you, if you haven't checked out her blog and work before, you are missing out! She is one of my fav card designers out there. I have linked her name above directly to the post...but be sure to check out the rest of her blog when you have some time...wonderful, wonderful!
Second is a little promo CTMH is running this month for National Papercrafting Month. There is an exclusive kit for sale that you can check out here, but the most fabulous part is the daily blog they have started with tips, techniques and a chance to win a free kit each day! Check out the daily fun at www.nationalpapercraftingmonth.blogspot.com! and if you haven't snuck a peak at CTMH's newest Idea Book you are in luck, just click on the Idea Book cover to the right of this post!
Ok...so now for the crafty goodness. Kelsey came home from school yesterday wearing a pretty beaded necklace one of her classmates had made for her. She set to work with her Pixo machine and bead kit creating a masterpiece in return and asked if I would make her a thank you card to go with it (I am raising that one right!) so I gladly took the excuse to start creating. I was going to save the card to post the firt week of February when I will be showcasing The Unity Stamp Co. stamps all week long (with blog candy!) but I just couldn't wait...plus that gives me more excuses to create (but who needs that...right!). So I will leave you today with this cute little Tuesday Treat....enjoy!the goods: stamps ~ Mix up of Cuteness (Owl), Following My Heart Aug 09 KOTM (Branch) - Unity Stamp Co.; patterned paper ~ Basic Grey; Cardstock ~ Dessert Sand, Cocoa, Crystal Blue, White Daisy - CTMH; ink ~ Cocoa - CTMH; markers ~ Hollyhock, Honey, Crystal Blue, Oak Brown - CTMH; ribbon ~ Blush Polka Dot (ret) - CTMH.
