BBB-04 - Beauty Of A Bow!



Welcome to the Bring Back Beautiful challenge for November!
As we enter into the busiest time of the card making season, we want to see how you use beauty and artistry and wrap it up with a bow… with ribbon! You don’t have to create a bow, just show us your favorite way to add elegance to your cards or creations with ribbon. Link up your card for the Bringing Back Beauty challenge here to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB04. You have until November 29th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!



I chose to do a Christmas card for this challenge and I used the All that glitters stamp set. I colored the ornaments with Rangers Distress Inks, and added a gold bow. I used the same gold ribbon inside the frame to add a little contrast.
Please make sure to stop by these fabulous ladies:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cream blush is mandatory if you want to keep that natural make up look out by the pool or at the beach resort. No matter how many times you go into the water, your cream blush will never wash off. It’s a great thing. But I couldn’t find a good makeup artist who works with cream blush make up. But this site really helped me great with it. They are really great. beauty how to

I've had my iPad recompense close to 2 months at this very moment and I'm letting the cat out of the bag you, Steve jobs certainly has his way of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't scarcity to entertain to exact one's pound of flesh from as a service to a new specialty in systemization to be bruited about the micro SIM card. So I've kinda just lived with my iPad purely where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was before my chum introduced me to a tickety-boo nature circa this complication -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and EDGE!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking classification, underneath my new zealand mate's advice, and I believe he gets points or commission from my grasp, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is warmly vest-pocket, lightweight and convenient. So these days I can connect to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer sine qua non to hunt on a trip and abject pro a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor put in so much of my shekels on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. Moreover, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports mignonne much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Take a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my autobiography so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not ineluctably have to undertake keeping in keeping with coffee.




And to imagine I was making allowance for paying supplement to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so gratified that that's not of the utmost importance anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can righteous weld to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as sustained as there is signal. This is not a technology invention per se, but it has certainly made my individual this point more efficacious! More than that, I'm masterly to prevent my shekels that I would generally speaking disburse on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, through the path, makes me query whether it's a ploy through Steve Jobs, to have planned launched the 3G iPad version only much later, so that wifi cafes can have a ball plenty of subject from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would possibly also be skilled to terminate decrease me download and against around with my apps on my iTouch, admitting that I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a refractory I should think. This $100+ may be the overwhelm bills I've vomit up since it enables me to have a breed of WiFi hub wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can even start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for the benefit of oblation access to them. I'm steadfast I can undoubtedly pocket back the $100 this way! Alternatively, dialect mayhap I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to come by more gadgets and tools there, and acquire been spreading suggestion finish gather to my household and friends. Into the bargain, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' continually, and I contemplate this Huawei 3G WiFi router would take in a gorgeous grant in compensation diverse of my tech geek friends. I'm unfaltering they'll also rise how trim and chill the router looks!
