Time For a Challenge!

Whooo hooooo everyone! Welcome to the very first Belles 'n Whistles Challenge, hosted here on our very own Belles 'n Whistles blog! =) It's about time we do some Belles-'n-Whistles-only challenges, don't you think?! We will hold a new Belles-'n-Whistles-only challenge every other Monday here...we hope you'll be joining us for the fun! You have time to enter until Sunday June 6th at 6pm EST.

The theme for our very first challenge was thought up by one of our newest DT members, Kathy Page. The absolutely talented Kathy would like everyone to create a project incorporating D.I.Y. Flowers! Create a flower or two to embellish your Belles 'n Whistles project then be sure to enter our first challenge! ;) Remember, the challenges held here will require that you use a Belles 'n Whistles image in your entry, so be sure to use a Belles 'n Whistles stamp please!

To get things jumpin', the randomly selected winner of this first challenge will win a $25.00 gift certificate to shop at Belles 'n Whistles. Uh-huh....$25.00!

Sorry! You have between now and Sunday, June 6th to enter! The winner as well as our second challenge will be posted on Monday, June7th!
