Belles 'n Whistles at Friday Sketchers



A very happy Friday to everyone and best wishes for a marvelous weekend!! I know that I intend to enjoy the beautiful weather as I begin to think about digging in the dirt with flowers on my mind!!

Today at Friday Sketchers 99 we are being hosted by the superbly talented and creative Carole of England who has a wonderful sketch for us. I would love for you to come over and join us this week where you will find that there is a very nice prize from Simon Says Stamp!!

For my DT Sample Card I used the darling Belle Dusting Cuckoo from the Belles "n Whistles Spring and Cleaning Collection. Belle was stamped on Cryogen white and colored with Copics. The base of the card is Bazzill, the matting is PTI and unknown, and the DP is all from the Paisley Parade Collection of KI Memories...all panels are machine stitched. I added a feather for her feather duster and used all Magnolia flowers. Finally I added pearls to all corners of the panels and a wee little clock to the upper floral treatment.

I hope you like my little creation and will visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls and see what magnificent creations they have for you:

Aud, Carole, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon! Enjoy your weekend!! Hugs!!
