Little Eden at the Belles 'n Whistles Blog Hop!! AND SWEET STUFF!!!!
Happy, happy, happy Wednesday!!! And, gosh, I hope you have as much to be happy about as I do!! I finished the 6 rounds of chemo on Monday, lived through the horrific Neulasta shot on Tuesday, and gosh after a few days of aches and pains, I will be on the mend!!!! What's a little bit of pain in the grand scheme of things??? I will tell you this weekend...hahahahah...My sincere thanks to each of you for your constant support and kind thoughts and words!!
I am so thrilled to be taking part today in the Belles 'n Whistles Blog Hop!! So if you have arrived here from Andrea, you are on the right track. However if you have arrived here first, I hope you will begin the Hop at the Belles 'n Whistles Blog so you can see the absolutely lovely cards made by this phenomenal DT, showcasing the darling stamps from Elisabeth Bell's new Forever Young Collection. Please leave a little love and hugs along the way!!! Pre-orders for these lovely stamps start on Wednesday at Belles 'n Whistles and orders will ship out on June 22 and June 23.
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, PTI Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush for the matting, and the DP is from Papermania's Rose Garden...gosh...just love those papers!!! The base panel was machine stitched and all remaining panels were propped up for maximum dimension. First is the MS Punch around the page panel, topped by gathered pink eyelet lace. The absolutely precious Little Eden was stamped twice on Cryogen White and one image was cut out to prop her up also. She was colored with Copics, using a touch of Spica for the flowers on her outfit. I completed the front with a floral treatment of flowers from Magnolia and Wild Orchid Crafts, pink pearls to soften the outside corners, and a Bow-Easy bow with an attached charm of the cutest little bare feet to match those of Little Eden. I hope you like her!!!!
Be sure to return to the Belles 'n Whistles Blog now since one randomly chosen winner will receive a new set of Belles 'n Whistles stamps! Oh My!!! What a wonderful prize that would be for some lucky winner!!!!!
