Sleepytime at Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog and SWEET STUFF!!



Happy Monday, Everyone!!! I hope you all had a magnificent, fun-filled weekend and are ready to start a great week! I go for a CT scan today which will indicate exactly where the radiation regimen will be so I have a very easy week!! Yippppeeee!!




I am honored to be hosting the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge this week so I would love for you to come over and join in with us...or at least just visit and see the wonderful cards made by the DT using my sketch.



For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is Melissa Francis...love her papers!!! All panels were machine stitched. The darling image is Sweet Dreams from Belles 'n Whistles and designed by Elisabeth Bell. She was stamped twice on Cryogen White so that one of the images could be propped up for dimension. She was colored with Copics....Notice I said she, but this could just as easily be a darling baby boy if done in different colors!! I used a paper doily, some wide picot edged ribbon and gathered eyelet lace for the remaining elements. For embellishments I added several buttons--Baby ABC blocks, diaper pin, and bottle, as well as a small bouquet of pink roses.


The inside of the card is more of the same...adding more wide picot ribbon and a handful of baby themed buttons.

I hope you like my little creation and will pay a visit to the Belles 'n Whistles Blog. We would love to see you there!!

Thank you so much for your visit to me today...and as most of you know, when it's challenge time, I have SWEET STUFF so here we go...some baby themed sweet stuff for YOU!!

1 Belles 'n Whistles Sweet Dreams stamp
1 Making Memories Baby Boy Page Kit
1 Crawling Baby Mega Punch
1 Marvy Uchida Baby Bottle Punch
Pink Satin Picot Edge Ribbon
Blue Organza Ribbon
Gathered Eyelet Lace
10 Baby Themed Charms

To be eligible for the SWEET STUFF please leave a comment before Thursday, July 15 at midnight. Good luck everyone!! Also if anyone needs a baby girl card, please send me an email and I will be glad to send this one to you. Please check the posting below to see if you are a winner of the Flower Soft or Magnolia SWEET STUFF from last week.

Thank you so very much for dropping by my world to see what's happening! It is always a real joy to "see" you and I hope you will come back often! Have a delightful week and until we meet again I send big hugs to YOU!!!

Thinking of you, also. Good luck with the scan.
There are no babies in my family right now. However, I'm officiating at my best friend's daughter's wedding in Sep. on Cape Cod and from my wheelchair. I should be a nervous wreck. So your candy will come in handy down the road, I'm sure. Thanks for the chance.

cheribella said...

Jacque your card is beautiful as usual. I didn't have a chance to check your blog because we were on vacation. We went to an art fair where there were many different booths and I purchased some cream for you to use due to all of your chemo and mostly radiation. If you would email me your address I will ship it right off to you.
If no one else has asked for the card yet...I am in absolute need of a baby card and for a girl too. I would be thrilled to get one of your cards!!!!
my email is cheribabe@gmail.com so please send me your addy for the cream. Thanks,
Cheri
p.s. the cream is all natural and holistic with herbs that the lady grows in her own garden:-)
