 Here is some creative inspiration for you...

This month comes to a close with a holiday that is near and dear to me, Memorial Day.  It's a Federal holiday here in the U.S. and honors those that have died while serving in their country's armed forces.  For me, it always brings to mind red poppies.  I can't remember how many times I stood in solemn silence and listened as "Flanders Fields", a memorial poem, was read aloud following the day's parade.

  I have many family members and friends that have served, including my brother.   Creating a card with a patriotic theme came easy to me.  So easy, I decided to make two cards to inspire you for this challenge!

And, here is my "Patriotic" inspiration....

"Three cheers for the Red, White and Blue"!

 "Thank You" 

So, come join us at the Double D Challenge Blog!  You'll find the challenge rules located at the top of the blog.  Link your entry using the Inlinkz icon found at the bottom of the current challenge post.

Craft-Dee BowZ "You Make My Heart Beat Faster"

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog  today sharing some fun May inspiration with you!

During the month of May, the Design Team is creating with the colors of teal, white/cream and black along with a music theme.  There were so many ideas that came to mind, but I decided on a pyramid shaped card for my project. One, because I wanted to try something different, and two, because it really fits the theme!

Here's why....

Do you know what this is?  Have you ever seen one before?  Well, it's a Metronome.  A device that can be set to a regulated beat per minute.  It is used by musicians to work on timing and tempo.  The ticks represent a fixed, regular pulse. Yep, just like a heart beat!  It's shaped like a pyramid and inspired the May project I created to share with you.

Here is my Metronome/Pyramid card...

"You Make My Heart Beat Faster"

The pyramid shape was created with black cardstock and teal, leopard print paper.  I used two different music sheet printed papers...for the heart on the front of the card and to embellish the inside of the card.  The pendulum is a clock hand and worked perfectly!

The inside of the card is embellished with several different patterned papers, music notes and the sentiment.

The yummy bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ Tool.  It's three separate single loop bows stacked together to create a multi looped bow.  I adhered a velvet flower to the center.  Love that awesome bow?  You can create bows like this using the Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  Stop by the blog and purchase yours today!
