BnW Christmas Release Blog Hop!!

Hello lovely people... and a Special Hello today goes to our Belles 'nd Whistles Fans out there!!

Welcome to our Official Christmas Release Blog Hop!!

Well if you just happened to stumble on my blog.. I need to re-direct you to the Belles 'nd Whistles Blog I would hate you to lose any of the fun.. so start there! If you DID come from there, well Hurrah! You are on the right track :)

Today we are Releasing 6 gorgeous stamps that you definitely NEED for your Christmas cards this year! And boy, aren't they cute? Well, Elisabeth Bell surely knows how to spoil us with the cutest designs, so a Special thank you goes to her! :)

Summer then, makes our dreams come true by turning these designs into rubber.. our constant need!! :) So.. without further ado... today it's my pleasure and honour to present you..

'Twas the Night Before Christmas










Do you recognise the bits of sneak peeks I've been showing you these last few days? Was I right to tell you that you will NEED this stamp?! Mmm.. look at those adorable kids.. too tired to wait for Santa!! They were actually waiting, and reading a lovely Christmas Story, or singing some favourite Christmas Songs.. when they dosed on the sofa. (I didn't heavily embellish this card, to leave the image stand out.)

They even left some Cookies for Santa, and some hot chocolate too! But ho ho ho .. he DID come.. with his rosy cheeks and the bells on his booties :) Look at the bling he has on his hat. I used Souffle pens on his beard and the white parts of hid costume, and then some stardust Sticles for some shine.

I loved colouring this cute scene, that comes all in ONE stamp! Isn't it lovely? Oh I can say that forever! This stamp, together with the other five, will begin selling on October 31, shipping out the following week. You can order yours from the Belles 'nd Whistles Store, or from any of the othe online Stores that sell BnW stamps. (You can find a list of these Stores on the Official Store Site).


If you leave a comment on all the DT blogs, AND on the BnW blog when you complete all the hop, you will have a chance of winning a FREE set of these adorable stamps. Summer is giving away 2 sets for this lovely occasion. So TWO different people will be winning a set each! Yay!! Thank you Summer!!




Close up of the image.


Oh by the way, I did prepare some cookies as well.. not for Santa though.. not yet.. for me and the kids.. we LOVE cookies, and coloring them on these image made want some for myself! Yum yum!!







I have Chocolate Chip Cookies and Striped Chocolate Peanut Cookies.. lovely. You can have one while you're here!! :)

Okay.. I'm off to hop as well. I'm dying to see the other DT creations, and I know I won't be disappointed! The stamps are all so gorgeous, and all in those lovely packages that no other stamp companies offer you! So what you're waiting for?? Go an hop!!









Oh sorry.. yes.. you're waiting for ME to give you your next link! daH!!



Off to Lynda's blog now... I'm coming after you to see her's as well. AND DON'T FORGET TO ORDER YOURS NOW! Christmas is just 8 weeks away!

Hi :-)
I love the way you colored the image and created this sweet story for us around the stamp. And you are right, the image stands out better, if there aren´t many embellishments, because it is so filigran and sweet.
Wonderful card!!

Rosette you´ve done a beautiful job. Your coloring is so perfect and real - looks like Santa could walk straight off the card and we have to be quiet to not wake up those lovely sleeping kids.
