A Bow of Many Colors...

Templates and Layered PSD file - Embellishment
Commercial Use
Multilayered Stitched Bow
I really enjoyed making today's freebie - I had a request for layered templates, and later a request for a particular bow, and this was the result.  Everything was created at 300 ppi, one is a PSD and the rest are PNG's, and all are available for commercial use.
Most importantly for designers, I think, is the layered PSD file.  It contains one layer for the center stripe, one layer for colored stitched edging, and another layer for gold edging, so you can choose which edging style you want.  The color overlays are already in place - all you need to do is select the layers you want, double-click on the color fill layer and select your colors.
And...for those of you without Photoshop, I have also included grayscale templates you can use for your designing.  There are 4 templates: one with a gold edge (you can just select the grayscale portion before recoloring), then three with the edge in a dark, medium and light shade, respectively.
There are also 30 completed bows, in many colors - 18 are in the same color scheme used in my prior CU freebies and 12 are in a variety of other colors.  The latter are primarily to show you the multitude of looks you can achieve by using one color for the center and another color for the edging.
Please let me know what you think of this - and please send me previews of any kits you make with it - I'd love to see your creations! :)

Notes for the day:
First of all, thank you SO much to those of you who have participated so far in helping the foster mother described  at the top of my blog.  Some fellow bloggers have even kindly offered to spread the word on their own blogs, for which I am VERY grateful!  So far, I have been able to purchase some of her most-needed items, and will be working on cleaning them up this weekend. Your donations, thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated - every bit helps!
On another wonderful note, our foster children got to return home with us this morning!  It was SO good to cuddle them in my arms again!  I am now healed enough to lift the baby's weight, but I'm not sure how long before I can carry the toddlers.  But, healing is going well - feeling stronger each day.
Hugs to everyone,

Thanks for another great freebie! I just donated what I could to help out. It's not much at this time of month, but if we all do our little bit, it will hopefully end up enough to bless them with everything they need.

Dearest, dearest SWEET Jeanie - I am EVER so far behind and am SO happy to find you healing up SO quickly and to hear that you have your PRECIOUS babes back where they belong once again!!!

I am SO saddened to hear your story of the foster mom with cancer. Seems this unforgiving and invasive disease is infiltrating our lives more than anyone could have ever imagined.

I wish to be able to contribute financially sweetie and will do so in September. You will still have the DONATION button up I hope!

Such a kind act on your part to spread the word for this WONDERFUL woman who has opened her heart and her home to children in need of love and nurturing - as you yourself have done and for which I shall ALWAYS be in awe with GREAT admiration.

Nine more days until we leave for my daughters wedding. I cannot think of much else at the moment as I'm trying SO hard just to feel "good" before we leave!

Your bows ARE beautiful!!! And the blocks??? OH MY GOODNESS!!! Thank you EVER so much for sharing!

LOVE atcha girl and I know you'll be holding those babies EXTRA close and tight to make up for their time away.
