Happy New Year!! A Belles 'n Whistles Unveiling and some Sweet Stuff, Too!!!!!
A very Happy 2010 to everyone!!! I hope that there are many significantly wonderful surprises for you in the New Year!!
Today is the unveiling of the new group of Belles 'n Whistles stamps to start the new year off in such a precious way!! Summer is calling this the Sweet Things Collection and after you see them I know you will agree!!! They are absolutely darling and can be used in so many ways!! I hope you will visit the Belles 'n Whistles Blog to see what the marvelously talented design team has created to demonstrate this magnificent collection. Please visit Anki, Iris, Jodi, Kathrin, Lilian, Lynda , Rosette, and Susan to see their amazingly beautiful creations!!!!
For my card I used the cute, cute, cute CUPCAKE image and she is so sweet for sure!! The base is Bazzill, the matting is PTI and SU, and the DP is all from the new BG Sugar Rush collection. Belle is so much fun to color that you will see that I have colored her numerous times...smile. I merely added some unique ball fringe, a bouquet of periwinkle roses, and a cat charm to match the kitty at Belle's feet.
The inside is quite simple using the same papers and trim, a different kitty charm, and half pearls at the jotting spot.
To match the card, I made a gift box of spa surprises for a very special friend, which uses the same trims, etc as the card. The box contains bubble bath, lotion, cream, diffuser kit, body wash, etc...
AND, although I only had one box to decorate I certainly didn't want my fantastic visitors to feel left out so I made 3 quick spa gift bags (which contain the same items) for 3 lucky winners who not only leave a comment here but also comment on the Belles 'n Whistles Blog before Sunday, January 3 at Noon EST.
My sincere thanks to each of you who visit and I hope you will come back often!! I love reading your comments and hold each of you as a very special part of my papercrafting venture!! Remember to leave a comment here and on the BnW blog!! My fondest best wishes to each of you for a spectacular 2010. Big hugs!!!
