Christmas card

I know it is long time until Christmas, but I have made a christmas card.
Last year I made 3 christmas cards each month, and I was so happy in December, because I had finished my cards.
This year I have decided to make two cards each month. Hopefully I can make it.

For this card I have used a beautiful image from BnW 2011 christmas collection.
The cute little boy is colored with distress ink, reinkers. I have also added stickles, star dust.
My card is decorated with laces and flowers. 
I have used a Martha Stewart punch to make the snowflakes.

Thank you for visiting us.
Hugs, Audhild

One for the girls

I am using the lovely Ice Cream Butterfly image from Belles N Whistles.

For the inside of my card, I used Ladybug grass. It's really a great stamp for backgrounds. :)
Card size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
Papers are Basic Grey and PTI.

Sadly, this is my last post as a Belles N Whistles DT member.
Thank you to Summer for having me as one of her DTs.
To the rest of my BnW sisters (including those in the past)
the sentiment on the card sums it up best. :)

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave!
Have a wonderful day!

Wishing You A Fairy Happy Birthday

Hi there, Lynda here, with a little gift tag to share with you today!  I'm actually traveling at the moment, so of course this post is prepared ahead of time...  LOL

I am going to keep this fairly short and sweet, but to the point.  It's been a while since I've used, or even seen these sweet Belles 'n Whistles Fairies used.  Of course they do tend to be more of a "Spring/Summer" type of stamp, but I couldn't resist.  My last post showed that sweet little Clown, in cheery colors, and I'm still in that mood to create with lots of color.  So here we go.....  We've got lots of color and a sweet little Fairy birthday gift tag, using "Fairy Wishes".

Copic's were used to color this darling fairy, as well as some Stampin' Up markers for the fine thin lines in the green leaf.  I used silk flowers and a button to embellish, and some light blue "bling".
The opposite side of this gift tag simply says "To The Birthday Girl:  and - with love from:

Thanks for stopping by, and taking a look at my gift tag using  "Fairy Wishes" from Belles 'n Whistles "Fairy Friends Collection"

Birthday Celebrations

Greetings Belles 'n Whistles friends!!!

Is anyone else feeling a little bit "Blahhhhh" from the dreary winter months?  I know that I am!  I have decided to create something with lots and LOTS of bright cheery colors, to try to help overcome these dull winter days!  What better way than to create a birthday card?

I used "Clowning Around" from the Forever Young collection!  I truly did feel like I was clowning around while making this vividly colored card.  Sometimes it's fun just to do things sort of random.

I colored this little cutie with copics, and even did a little bit of 3D work there.  I probably should have taken a picture on an angle to show you.  But the adorable red clown nose, big bow tie, and the puffy green balls on the front of this bright clown suit are all lifted on pop-dots.  The multi-colored flower petals are 3D as well, this seems to be more noticable. 

I created my own flowers, and actually colored them with random copic colors, to match the crazy flower that this cute little clown is holding.   The sentiment is digital, and available in the Belles 'n Whistles Store under "Word Art".

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope that my "Clowning Around" card has brought a smile to your face, and a little cheer to your day!
