Big Hugs

It's November 1...which brings all new monthly challenges!  The challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HANDMADE BOW!  For my card today I used a Wild Rose image that reminds me of my daughter, Stephanie. Stephanie recently had spine surgery and recuperated at my house. Each day when she awoke, there was a card and a little 'something' waiting for her so she'd have something to look forward to each morning.  This is one of the cards I made for her. She has a kitty that looks like the one in the card, too, that she brought with her to my house!

Here's a close-up of this very cute image. And yes, Stephanie has red hair.
I took a picture of my flowers and the ivy, too. Stephanie loves ivy and all kinds of plants so I knew she'd like these flowers and greenery.
And here's my bow. I used my handy dandy bow tool and couldn't have done this thin ribbon multi-looped bow without it! I added a tiny dew drop in the middle of it!
The Team at Craft-Dee BowZ consists of 4 gals. Please take a moment to look at their cards/projects and if you have a chance, please leave a little comment for them on the blog site of Craft-Dee BowZ.  We'd love you to join us this month where the challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HANDMADE BOW!
