Belles N' Whistles Blog Hop - Bronzing Beauty



Hot fun in the summertime! I love that song because it's about my favorite time of the year. So I want to welcome you to the new "Spring & Cleaning & Summertime" blog hop release! If you've come to my blog from the ever talented Lynda, then you're on the right track. If not, make sure you go to our Belles N' Whistles blog and start from the beginning. These images are just to stinkin cute and you'll not want to miss out on seeing a single one of them! Now, on to the cuteness!



Isn't she just too cute for words? I'm just head over heels in love with Bronzing Beauty! When I looked at her, well, it was true love! I love every single thing about her, especially her towel! She's exactly how I see myself in my mind - slim, gorgeous and having some great time in the sun'! Well, I'm not slim or gorgeous but I sure do love the sun!

She's colored with copics and I added some Diamond Glaze to the pool to give it that vinyl look. Isn't the sun and pool just too much fun? They're new digis that are also available with this fun release. I added some stickles to the water and a bit around Belle and on the Prima Flower for a bit of sparkle because you know how much I love that!



And have you heard that 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!

OK, so now head on over to our fearless leader, Summer's blog for the next round of gooey sweetness coming your way! Thanks for stopping by! Remember that pre-orders for stamps start on Saturday, March 20 with stamps beginning to ship March 27. Happy hopping!

Card Ingredients:

Bronzing Beauty from Belles N' Whistles, Portebello Road paper from K&Company, Rhinestones from K&Company, MS daisy border punch, copics, SU topnote die cut, Prima Flowers, Stickles, ribbon, Blue Moon charm.

Belle is becoming a real lady! Love the bright colors you used on your card and how they match the designer´s paper. And Mr Sun is looking at Belle shining extra warm so Belle will get a nice sun tan. Beautiful card, hun!

Love
