Belles 'n' whistles blog hop...

Welcome to the Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop”  We are so excited to be a part of this special release.   Along this hop you will find those new releases.  And we, as customers of Belles ‘n Whistles, get to play along using any of our favorite BnW Stamps…

Today we are celebrating  the rebirth of the darling SweetArt girls designed by none other than Artist Elisabeth Bell.  Belles ‘n Whistles now has a total of 17 SweetArt girls in their store.  They were just too beautiful to be left sitting in the archives.  Elisabeth Bells talent deserves better than storage, don’t you think?

If you have just popped in, it would be great if you started in the beginning, and hopped along with us. You will find the master list of participants over on the
Belles ‘n Whistles Inspirational Blog.  To keep things easy, please follow that list and leave a comment on each blog.  Do you know why?  Because YOU could win a stamp from Belles ‘n Whistles, just for leaving some love along the way.  There will be FIVE winners chosen randomly from comments that have been left along the way.  No one knows who’s blog the winners will come from. 

So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or Lemonade and enjoy all the fun and exciting things we, the Belles ‘n Whistles Customers, have to share with you today.

Heres my card for the blog hop.
I have chosen Belle sitting with Teddy, I have coloured her with Prismas, used cheesecloth and hand rolled roses, with a cheery Lynne die that I chopped up a bit and a key charm from ebay.


DP - Maja Design,
Die cuts - Cheery lynne and marianne designs (not sure about loopy circle, freebie from Tracy at Dies to die for)
pink rosebuds - wild orchid crafts
key - ebay
 Thank you for popping by, enjoy the rest of the blog hop.
Remember to leave a comment for your chance to win a Belles 'n'whistles stamp of your choice.

Next on the hop is Vicki
