Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend, and that you are ready for some fantastic BnW sweeties. Today I have some wonderful news to share.. that has to do with BnW, and some other not so good as well.
But before all these news: Mette has not contacted me to claim her BnW stamp from our last Hop. I said I will leave till Monday, but I kindly left another week. I think now it's time I choose another winner. Soooo this time I chose Mary Lou.
Mary Lou I hope you will e mail me your address and the choice of stamp from the last Changabelles Collection.
Let's start with the fantastic news: Belles 'nd Whistles today is inaugurating a new challenge blog, set up fantastically by our lovely Lynda. We are super proud of it, it is a MUST SEE, and we'll be making our challenges there, as from today.
Also we are going to make our challenges every fortnight, like we had them before. In this way you will have more time to play, and today you will find a super prize for the first challenge. So GO AND CHECK it out.
For today's card I used three different stamps from the new Changeabelles Collection: Kneeling Belle, The Gathering Place, and the Gift, from the Gift and Table Accessory stamp.
The gift was stamped on a piece of Dp (the same I used on my card), and again on a piece of scrap from the matting cardstock. From this, I cut the ribbon and bow, and I glued it on top of the whole gift cutting from the DP. It has an awesome 3D look. Finally I added some polka dots with a white gel pen. I am explaining this just to give you some ideas how you can use these wonderful accessory stamps, and to show you their versatility.
I coloured this image with Copics (scroll down for numbers) , and used some papers that were lying in my stash, I just thought they go well with the image. But then, when I was almost finished, I remembered that Jodi's lovely theme for this challenge was Fall Colours... oh my!!!
Thank God that my dear BnW sisters understood my Senior moment lol! and let me keep the card :)
I hope you have a wonderful week, and this week, I would like to ask you to do two small things. First, be thankful.. to God first of all for all that you have in your life. Remember that everything is a Gift from Him.
Second, remember that October is Cancer month. Do check yourself often, it can save your life. Pray for all those who have died, have survived or are fighting against this desease.. and last but not least, take a few sconds to visit two friends of mine:
Jacque, who has just finished her pink journey (breast cancer) and is celebrating with pink candy, and our darling Elise.. who unfortunately has just started it. PLEASE go and leave them some love. We all need it sometime!
