Hey... BnW Blog Hop Day is here!!!

Edited: For another BNW new release card, see my other post as well, you can find it HERE



Hurray!!! Yesterday it was a lovely Mo's Digital Pencil hop, today I am welcoming you on our Belles 'nd Whistles Blog hop, where 10 gorgeous images are making their debut for the first time.

These gorgeous stamps are making this debut in more than ways than one; but I'm going to let Summer tell you about it herself:



Have you heard? Belles `n Whistles stamps are now sparkling clear! Designed by artist Elisabeth Bell, they are the finest of sparkling clear, genuine photopolymer stamps around, made in the U.S. ! Ready to use with an acrylic block, stamping couldn't be any simpler! These sparkling clear stamps allow for effortless placement on craft projects, easy clean up and compact storage too! Stamping clearly has never been so sweet! You are sure to love your new sparkling clear Belles `n Whistles stamps!And they ARE gorgeous and lovely to stamp I can tell you!

Anyway.. back to our Blog hop. I feel ready now to present you our



Spring & Cleaning & Summertime Release.
If you landed here, on my Blog, please start the Hop from talented Kathrin.I know she has a fantastic creation ready for you ;) She will be starting the Hop today. If you came here from Jodi's blog, then I'm sure you liked her gorgeous creation, and I can tell you that you are in the right track. If you'd like a chance to win the entire release set, make sure you leave some love on each blog you visit, and finally on the BnW DT blog. Summer will choose a comment randomly and will bless her/him with this gorgeous 12 image set.

So... without further ado.. let me present you

Belle with Laundry







Look at her.. she looks exactly like me.. when I do about three loads of kids' clothes!!! I will show you soon the heaps of laundry I have almost everyday:) So I really identified with this image as from the first time I saw her :) Isn't she cute?
For her card I used Friday Sketcher's sketch for this week. I had fun playinng with it, especially knowing it's our dear Jacque's sketch, and it WAS fun making it. I used stitching on the main panels, and matted the image, which I had coloured using Copics. The background is distressed by Tattered Rose.



Do you see the glimmer on the flowers? I made that with Tattered Rose Glimmer mist, which my friend Sonja sent me. Thank you sweetie :)

To add some fun, I added a clothes' line on my ribbon, and I hang in some small wood pegs which I had in my stash, and hang the words "To mum" in individual letters. Isn't it cool? I like it.. do you?







This is the inside view, I kept it simple and efective.

I hope you let me know what you think, Belle is also curious to know. We also thank you for visiting us today, and sharing with us this lovely journey.







Tomorrow, or later today, I'll show you another creation from this gorgeous release. Which do you think it will be???

Have a lovely day! Smiles!





I used quite a bunch of Copics for this one!!


Edited: OH I'm SORRY.. for those who came earlier!!!! I FORGOT TO LINK the amazingly wonderful ANKI It is there you have to go next. Sorry again!!! Bah

Thanks for looking

Oh Rosette, this is so beautiful! I love the idea of the line and the little pegs! Not to mention that this image is one of my favourites - probably every women´s favourite because Belle is doing this laundry with a big smile on her face. We can all learn from her!

Love!
Kathrin
