How big is your bow?

Hello peeps I hope Thursday finds you well and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am!! Once again I apologise for being a bad blogger, someone seems to have shortened the days lately and my good intentions have fallen by the wayside. I doubt I will ever catch up but will visit soon!!

Anyway, I have a DT card to share today for the new challenge at


where it's all about the size of your bows...Little or Large? and don't forget to tell us why

I am always mindful of postage costs so rarely add bows to my cards. However when the need arises and the card is to be hand delivered or is for a customer I always make the same sized ones on my bow maker, not too little and not too big...just right!! 


I decided to go digital for this piece as Halcyon Days has been sitting on my desk for quite some time still in it's cellophane wrapper so I thought I'd better do some thing about that. The inspiration came from the current Cardz 4 Galz Challenge which is Tea for Two and so this card was born.
Additions were by way of some matching cardstock, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Hope you will find time to share your bow adorned creations with us at As You Like It.

I am taking my card to these challenges

  1. Love the vintage look of this pretty card Sarah and the sentiment could have been written by me as I like tea so much! Love your bow too - I haven't tried a bow maker yet but perhaps I should give it a go.

  4. Bows on card invariably lead to the large letter rate Sarah and like you I have become mindful when a card is for posting. Love the blue and yellow colour palette, very soft and summery.

  12. I agree with the size of the bow and also tend to leave them off due to the pesky thickness rules at the PO.

  28. Your bow is sweet & pretty and I don't use bows too much either...some because of the postage, but also, because mine just never look right. This one looks perfect. I'm loving the blue & white dots & this looks quite vintage to me, with the sweet breakfast scene (or perhaps it's 'tea time'..Love the layers, the shapes you've used. The yellow stripe in the ribbon looks so pretty with the blue color too. One of my fav color combos. Happy wkend. TFS

  29. Hi Sarah! I agree with you on the postage issue, that usually impacts my decision on bows and I also agree with you on time speeding up. I can't seem to fit all I need/want to do in a day any more. Your card is gorgeous! I love the polka dots, your gorgeous perfectly sized bow, they all play so well with this darling image!
