Ok on to this week’s challenge for 4 Crafty Chicks. Beautiful bows! I suck, bigtime with bows! They never look right so I invested in the bowmaker and it was the best $6 I ever spent! I use it all the time.
Here is my card for you today
The DP is just some scraps left over from all the Christmas Cards that I have been making. I cut out the mittens and the scarf from my Winter Wonderland cartridge. The twine is from my stash as well as the JOY sticker. I hope you like it. Please stop by the blog and play along with us this week.

They chose a theme of Embossing this week and have given us some embossing folders as a prize! There will be 3 for the winner and one each for 2nd and 3rd place. You can see them on their website here
Here is my card for this week’s challenge
I used some of Sarah’s digital papers for the balloons (which can be found in the store here. I embossed the balloons using the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder and then raised a few of them with pop dots. I added some thick twine to use as strings and then tied it with the red twine. A simple sentiment from Sarah’s store and the card is finished. The edge embossing was done with my Scor-Buddy. Just a nice touch I think. I hope you enjoy this card and don’t forget to head over to the challenge blog to play along for that great prize this week from Handy Hippo!
