As You Like It Challenge #80 - Big Bows or Little Bows & WHY

Hi Crafters,

Thank you for all the lovely comments here on my blog recently and the well wishes regarding my mum and her hip operation. She is doing very well with her recovery and hopefully will be back to her old self soon. I hope that I have the same outlook and determination when I'm 84!
I am still staying with her for a few more days yet, just popped home for a few things and to write this post, so my regular commenting won't resume just yet, however I can see your comments when the internet works on my phone at her house.

Now on to the business at hand...

A new challenge at As You Like It!
We'd like to see your projects using your favourite BIG or LITTLE BOWS and WHY, please tell us why you have made your choice in your post to be eligible for the prize which brings me nicely to our sponsor for this time...

offering $10 to the lucky winner.


I prefer small bows as I find them easier to tie and less bulky for posting too.

This is a CraftsUprint digital image and background manipulated in MCS program to fit a 7 inch square card.
This card is entirely digital except for the ribbon and bow. I printed the images a few times and layered them up for dimension.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Why not pop over to the blog and see the inspirational and fabulous projects from the other DT members, then come and join in with us, this is a nice and easy challenge as I'm sure we all love to use bows on our projects.

Well that's it from me,

Lorraine

What a fabulous card Lorraine, very striking and stylish, and those shoes almost seem like they're 3D, love it. So glad your Mum is recovering well, I know what it's like as my Mum ended up having both her hips done after breaking them (separately not together thank goodness), but she was 10 years younger. Ops are always more worrying in later life, but sounds like she's doing great and has wonderful support. Don't worrying about commenting, I'm always running late on that myself and family should always come first :) xx
