Belle poses for Friday Sketchers

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a lovely weekend :) I'm just back from a week vacation in our summer residence, where we took a small break of one week from the daily busy schedule of caring for our precious kids in care. Obviously we don't go all of us at the same time.. this week it was my turn :)

While I was there, I coloured my sweet Belle with teddy bear, from Belles 'nd Whistles stamps. Isn't she cute? She gives me such sweet memories of when I was young. I also had my favourite teddy, and wouldn't want mum to wash it for me.. we used to have a row everytime!! lol

I coupled her with Lemonade Papers from Basic Grey, and used Friday Sketcher's sketch for this week's challenge. I only left out the sentiment, I preferred it like that, as the paper is already busy enough.

I loved the sketch, and I added a half paper doily lace behind the image, and those two white flowers at the bottom of the image are made of real lace. They're soo lovely! The matching brads on top are also Basic Grey, and instead of the sentiment, in the top left corner I added three silver coloured dew drops. All these products can be purchased from Summer, at Roses on Paper (I only used the organza ribbon, angel charm and doily embellies from my stash). The Belle stamp can be found in Belles ' nd Whistles (another division of RoP), together with more lovely designs by the super talented Elisabeth Bell. If you haven't already visited the BnW sore, you must go.. and see what my so very talented fellow DT friends have created with these lovely babes!! Amazing!

This is a picture of the sentiments that I added for the inside. It is meant to be a Friendship card, or Thinking of You sort of card. I hope that you like it, and that you will let me know what you think. Would anyone want to ask me something , you can use either the Chat Box in my sidebar, or e mail me at the address that the link in my sidebar gives you. I'll be happy to help :) Have a lovely week!


Thanks for looking
