Simon Says Stamp challenge at Paper Sundaes

Good morning all my blogging friends! This week at Paper Sundaes we are being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp and the challenge this week is Beautiful Bows. Now I will occasionally put a  bow on my card but the only way I get them to look nice is to use this little gadget I saw on Becca's blog called a peg bow maker. It is so simple and I grab it everytime I need to make one. Yes, I have the bow easy but I don't really care for it (Patty do you want it?) but the peg bow maker is awesome!  Anyways, I have used a cute Christmas image by CC Designs called Reindeer Lights.

I have to say I reallllly like this card and I have already had one of my friends take it from me! Might have to make me another one! I have colored him with copics with some prismacolor pencils to deepen the shading a bit. The bow is actually attached to the bottom ribbon with glue so it would lie down sideways. He has some glossy accents on his nose and all of the lights and some bling with the snowflake. Okay everyone, if you want a chance to win a gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp you gotta play so make your bows however you like and post your link on the main site. Good luck! I would like to enter this into the All that scraps challenge which is thankful. I am thankful my Christmas tree is prelit or I would look like this too!

Amanda this is so darn cute & you made me laugh hearing about your bow maker !!! I have the Bow Easy & I really do like it for taking with me as it's small enough to fit in anything but it always takes me an hour to figure out how to use it again. I saw the Bow maker on Beccas blog & actually made myself one using some tools in my daughter's shop.... It was pretty easy & works like a dream ... Thanks for sharing your reindeer card, it's a keeper !!!
