Belles 'nd Whistles Challenge- I'm Late

Happy Wednesday!

I thank you for popping by my Blog today, ain't I Blessed to have so many lovely people sharing with me God's gift of crafting!!? Gals I really appreciate you! Thank you once again.

Today I have a ">BnW DT card to share with you. Actually this post had to be blogged on Monday, in the beginning of the challenge.. my challenge actually; but I was very busy these last two days, and in a blink.. it's already Wednesday! my my!!

Well I have challenged the DT, and now you to use Purple/ Lilac/ Lavender in your cards... any shades of purple, AND a BnW image. This is my favourite colour, but funnily enough I don't use it often in my cards. So.. this week is the perfect excuse to dig your purple tones, and show us your creations. Hop on in our Blog to see the fantstic cards made my DT buddies as well :)

For my card I used the lovely Clowning Around image, from the Forver Young BnW Collection. Isn't this girl cute?! It reminds me of when I used to take care of our Residential kids and some of them used to dress as clowns in Carnival.. boy they were so cute!!!

I used Green at Heart papers from BG for my card, and used Sunday Sketch and Stamp's sketch as my layout. Hydrangeas from Roses on Paper, and the middle silver buttons are from my stash.

Challenges I'll join:

Sunday Sketch and Stamp: Sketch
Basic Grey: Pearls
Stamp Something: photo inspiration

Copics used: R 20, 22, 24, 27, 29
N0, 2, 4, 6, 8 Black
W 00, 1
G 000, 21, 82, 99
V 0000, 000, 12, 04, 06, 17
E 00, 21, 31, 57, Y23, YR23, YR 0000

Have a fantastic rest of the week. I hope you're having some rest and some lovely time with the people you love. Cherish them while you can, never take anyone forgranted.. before it's too late.
Smiles and Blessings!

oh cute, I really like this which is a wonder because I'm clown phobic so it must only be male clown phobic ha ha.

Hi Rosette, guess which other image I bought when I got the Fairy Play one - yes Clowning Around, I know I'm on a craft 'diet' at the moment but I couldn't possibly let her travel alone so I got her a travel companion. I've just coloured/paper pieced her but I don't like the card so ??? She looks fabulous in purples great layout for her and scrumptious details.
Have a great weekend my love.
hugs Heather xx
