Beautiful Bows

Good morning!! I thought I would post my card that I made for the 3 Girl JAM Link Up party. They had a blog hop on July 1 to show off their new Bow Maker and asked that we show them our bows!! I own the Crafter's companion which has a bow maker on it so I used it to create my bow (lets just say I wish I had the 3 Girl JAM bow maker instead). I created a 5 loop bow after watching Julie's video several times (I don't think it is that hard but when you are working with pegs that don't want to stay put it gets hard). I also used Sassy Studio Designs digital image Samantha Sassy. I had so much fun the week of the relay and I had printed out an extra image of Samantha so I decided to use her.

What I Used:
3 Girl JAM: Crinkle Ribbon Witch's Brew
Sassy Studio Designs: Samantha Sassy
Prismacolor Water Color Pencils
Prismacolor Colorless Blender
My Pink Stamper : Sweetest Cupcakes
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
1" circle punch
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Cupcakes
Sticker (cake)

Ok so Samantha needed a little tweaking to stand up as she is originally leaning. I did the unthinkable...... I cut her in half!!!!!! I know horrible but I glued her back together and gave her a cute little belt to hold her waist together, so all is good!!

You have until the 15th of July to link up your bows to win a $10 GC to 3 Girl JAM plus there bow maker (which is only 5.99 to buy what a steal!!)

Have A Great Weekend!!

I believe if the weather is nice we will be headed to the water agian tomorrow!!

God Bless!
