Bringing a Little Sunshine Your Way

Good Afternoon Friends,  boy there is nothing like being late.  I swear that everything I've done today I've been behind... or running late.  I think if my head were not attached to my shoulders, I'd lose it.  ha ha

I have a card to share with you today, and I should have had my post ready to go early this morning, but nope.... not this time.  I'm sorry for my delay.... 


I have been LOVING working with Lavender colors the past week or two, I don't know what it is, maybe just a feeling of Spring Time has taken over. 

I've used "Pretty in Patches" from Belles 'n Whistles SweetArt Girls II collection.  She's currently out of stock there, but it is possible that you can still find her at other places such as Simon Says Stamp or 7 Kids College Fund.  

Isn't she just adorable?  I love her big bows, and large sun hat.   I couldn't resist adding a touch of yellow to these shades of purple, just for a little contrast.

Are you feeling a little bit of Springtime Sunshine yet?

Thanks for stopping by today, once again, I'm sorry for my delayed post.....

An Apple a Day

Hello Dear Belles 'n Whistles Fans! Happy Friday to all of you. Today I like to show you the card I made for our on going challenge at the BnW Challenge Blog  with the theme 'Butterflies'.




 
For my card I used 'Sweet Apple' one of my favorite images from the SweetArt girls! I colored her using Copics. My DP choice is Bo Bunny's "Garden Girl' collection. I used a metal butterfly charm, some punched out butterflies and a die cut butterfly from Whimsy. The flowers are from my stash and the rose leaves are punched out and embossed using a Nellie Snellen punch & emboss set.

You'll find more photos on my blog and all the challenge details over at our BnW Challenge Blog  I hope you like to join us in this fun challenge, can't wait to see all the stunning creations!\
 
Hugs,
Iris

good bye....


Happy monday dear Belles'n'Whistles fans!

Well, after Vicki's "hello" posting last friday I just had to name my post "good bye". And I am writing this with a very sad heart. 
You might have noticed that I haven't been around much lately and after a lot of thinking I have decided to step down from this wonderful team. I have been a DT member from the very first stamp BnW brought out and I so love these wonderful Belles'n'Whistles images, the amazing group of ladies and of course our lovely Mama Summer and so this is very hard for me. But you know, sometimes life changes and we have to make our way of living match the new circumstances. 

So I am sending out a huge thank you to each and every one of our readers,
to you Summer, for being such a sweetheart all the time and for having given me the chance to be on this wonderful team and play with these adorable stamps you brought out to all the stampers,
and to all of the amazing ladies from this team that soon became like a little family and that will always be in my heart and my mind.

I am saying good bye with a card that I used "Pretty in Patches" on. I thought this image matches the occasion because she seems to look a little sad...

I promise to be around so for sure we'll meet each other again in blogland.

Biggest hugs,

Hello...

Hello Belles n' Whistles fans!! :)
I hope you didn't forget about me!  It's been a while since my last post on here, but I'm so excited to be sharing a creation with you here today!

It's getting close to that time of year where the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping....it's time to say hello to Spring! I have just the perfect image with inspiration for you today!
This is one of Elisabeth Bell's images that was previously released as a Sugar Nellie stamp, but now you can catch this really sweet stamp from Belles n' Whistles called Little Friend!
I stamped the little sentiment in the corner as I thought it was such the perfect thing to add.

I've used some of my fun K & Company papers to match up the colors.
You can catch more about this creation on my blog HERE if you'd like.
I hope you've enjoyed my Spring creation today and thanks for stopping by!!
See you back again soon my friends! :)
