Belles 'n Whistles" All Customer Blog Hop"


Welcome to the Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop”.  I am so excited to be a part of this special release. Along this hop you will find some new releases. And we, as customers of Belles ‘n Whistles, get to play along using any of our favorite BnW Stamps…

Today we are celebrating the rebirth of the darling SweetArt girls designed by none other than Artist Elisabeth Bell. Belles ‘n Whistles now has a total of 17 SweetArt girls in their store. They were just too beautiful to be left sitting in the archives. Elisabeth Bells talent deserves better than storage, don’t you think?
If you have just popped in, it would be great if you started at the beginning, and hopped along with us. You will find the master list of participants over on the Belles ‘n Whistles Inspirational Blog. To keep things easy, please follow that list and leave a comment on each blog. Do you know why? Because YOU could win a stamp from Belles ‘n Whistles, just for leaving some love along the way. There will be FIVE winners chosen randomly from comments that have been left along the way.
No one knows who’s blog the winners will come from.
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, tea, Lemonade, or your favorite beverage and enjoy all the fun and exciting things we, the Belles ‘n Whistles Customers, have to share with you today.
Keeping Card Deets short this time:  Image EB's Christmas Door from Belles'n Whistles - CLP Sketch - DP from stash - colored with Copics - Gold & Crystal Stickles - Embossing Folder - Poinsettia & Holly Leaves from WOC - Gems from stash - Modeling clay for the snow & stickles. I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CLP Sketch Challenge #39  Minus The sentiment

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I sure hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I don't miss seeing what's new and creative on your blog.  You never know, this could be the one with a freebie EB stamp for you.  Now be sure you head on over the Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop”  to see all the wonderful creations by the DT and customers of Belles'n Whistles to have a chance to win one of Elisabeth Bell amazing stamps.  You have until August 10th, 11:59 CET  Time Zone to complete the hop for your chance to win some gorgeous Elisabeth Bell Stamps.
