Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Crafty Boots does Bowtastic!

Good morning to you all, it feels so lovely having had a rather super spell of warm & sunny weather that even Monday morning can't dampen my mood!

Anyway this post is all about the latest challenge over at Crafty Boots where the theme of Bowtastic was set by the boss and lovely lady that is Stephanie-Emma.

So basically we want to see your bows!

Here's my DT card - 


My card is roughly an 8 x 8 elegant edged base card, covered with free paper I received with a magazine. The main image is, of course, Crafty Boots digital stamp which is available to buy from the on-line Crafty Boots shop.  I coloured her with my alcohol markers.
I added an accent stamped image and then I went crazy with bows, all colour matching and very topical for this fortnight coming up. I decided that I would give this card to my niece who's birthday is during the Jubilee celebrations. I love the look of Crafty Boots as she looks like she is cutting up ribbon ready to make the bows for the celebrations!

Here's a closer look - 






So there you go a Bowtastic card, that's patriotic and crafty too!

Can't wait to see your bows - big, small, dotty or plain, longs you've got one (or lots, even better!)  you can join in the fun!

Take care Zo xx

Great card Zoe! I know it is British themed, but the colors make me nostalgic for home. Funny how America didn't chose different colors considering the history..lol. I digress.... you know I love the image, and she really pops on this beautiful card! xxDenise
