Being Crafty

I have a new 'Making Bows Tool' and I have been practicing the fine art of tying bows for cards.  My friend Jan (yes her name is Jan too) gave me the tool and showed me how to use it.  Thanks Jan.
I thought I remembered how to make bows but of course I didn't.  I called on a second friend of mine, Carol and she sent instructions. I need all the help I can get!
Here's the tool and the bows I have created so far.

 The bows
 And here's Elmo!  He's a cute little lunch box I store scissors and adhesive in.

I am also making a Spring card for a card swap in early March. This is what I have so far.
I want the flowers to be bright and pop like the flowers in the photos behind them.
It's a work in progress.  I'll let you know how it turns out when I come up with a design I like.

Here's the stamp I plan to use and some of my flower photos from last summer.
What have you been creating lately to get ready for Spring?
