God Bless our Freedom

Today we join the army with this cute little army bear from Meljen's Designs. What a fun card to make on a rainy NY day. The card measures 6 x 8 with an American flag theme. I used some odds and ends i found in my stash and it was done. If anyone has some tips on making good bows i would love to hear them. Unless i find one all tied i seem to have the worst time getting them to look good....thanks!!

  10. Oh, I almost forgot. I had the same questions on how to make bows. Every one keeps telling me to try making bows using a fork. I haven't tried it yet but I did google "fork bow" and found a ton of tutorials.


Thank you for your comment!! it is always great to hear your thoughts. Have a fabulous day!!
