 Hello everyone,

Wednesday already, that week flew by, and it is time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  and this week JanR is out hostess and looking for BOW'S.. big ones, small ones, some as big as your head, if you use a bow you are good to, a song and a poem all in one sentence..

My project..

I had purple flowers all made up and sitting in my box, just waiting,

and on box making day I made several this size,
 hold 6 x 8 sized cards..the deeper the box the more foo foo I can put on the card..

6x6 papers needing extensions to fit my size cards..


I think is where the bow needs to has wire along the edges so you can maneuver it 
around and fluff it up..

I had several leftover clusters of Altenew flowers..

In the same colour..YAY!!

and some yellow ones which it definitely needed..

So everything set up ready...AND!!

right in the middle of it all..

Never mind, she didn't stay too long or get comfortable,
and everything was ready for gluing down..

Sorting out my colourful wooden butterfly buttons..

And my card and box set was done, with a whopper of a bow.

Standing up..

and I added a "Just For You" die cut at the last minute..

So there we go..

Do pop over and join in if you can, would love to see you there

Thank you so much for stopping by..
