Craft-Dee BowZ April Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I have been given the honor of being this month's guest for Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop!  ::squeal::
It's so amazing to be featured among such a talented DT, just for doing something I love more than anything.

For this month's blog hop, the theme is "Living on the Edge" so the DT (and I) are using border dies.  For my card, I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make a Multi-loop bow and you can find this and more fantastic tutorials on the Videos/Tutorials/Pictorials website.  I followed the "Multiple Loop Bows" tutorial.  I was actually finished before the video ended, it's so easy!

What I love most about it is that you can make bows as small as around 3/4 inch up to about 4 1/2 inches, from small and simple to big and fluffy! And without the bulk of another tool to add to your craft room... this one is very compact.

*** You can win a 25' Reel of Ribbon!  ***

All you have to do is follow the hop and leave a comment at each stop.  Then return back to the Craft-Dee BowZ blog hop post and leave another comment, simple as that! The winner will be announced on Sunday, April 19th!

Here's the line-up to help keep you on track:
