Two Turtle Doves at Belles 'n Whistles and a bit of Sweet Stuff!!!!



Happy Thursday everyone and GOSH!!! Happy Christmas Eve, too!!! I hope that everyone is prepared for that plump, jolly man's arrival!!!

I also hope you have been visiting the Belles 'n Whistles blog every day this month because Summer has already given out some unbelievable surprises EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! The very end of the Advent Calendar at Belles 'n Whistles will be on Christmas Day so you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why----Summer has a magnificent surprise for all of us on Christmas Day!!!!!!!

For my card I have used Two Turtle Doves "On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me, two turtle doves..." and oh my, if she isn't the most precious little thing!!!! I have used Webster's Pages DP, Bazzill for the base, and SU for all matting...She is colored with Copics and propped up for dimension...Isn't she darling???

To match the card I have made a candle lantern shown below:




Although the holidays are almost over (or will be by the time you receive this card and lantern) I would love to send this set to someone just to say thanks for visiting my blog and just to ask you to visit the Belles 'n Whistles blog today and tomorrow!!! I know you will be very happy that you did!!! I will select someone using Random.org on Sunday, December 27 at Noon EST. Remember to leave a comment here and also visit the BnW Blog today and tomorrow. I would love for you to tell all of your followers about my giveaway AND about the Belles 'n Whistles opportunity!!!

Thank you so much for your visit and I don't have the words to properly tell you just how much I appreciate your visits and comments. May you and yours have a most blessed holiday season! Merry Christmas and hugs to each of you!!!

AND just a bit of news: Over on Friday Sketchers on Christmas Day we are having a Blog Hop using a fabulous sketch by Claudia and I think you will find that each of the DT members who are participating will have a bit of sweet stuff for you to win as well as an overall FS bit of candy...So I hope you can hop along with us on Friday!!!! HUGS!!!!!
