Guest DT Belles 'n Whistles - Clowning Around Card, Blog Hop & Blog Candy







I've been asked by the very talented & sweet Summer to be Guest DT (June & July) for Belles 'n Whistles. What a huge honor it is to be chosen and to be able to work with such a fab DT and the stamps...luv, luv, luv them! Thank you for having me as a Guest DT.

Today is a very exciting day as it's the release day of the new Belles 'n Whistles Forever Young Collection. Don't you just luv the name? I will always be forever young ;o) There are 8 new images in total and all available for pre-order today. *Orders will ship out on June 22 and June 23. The store will be closed from June 23-July 5. No orders will be taken during this time so order before June 22 to have your stamps ship prior to closure.*

There is also a blog hop over at the Belles 'n Whistles blog so make sure you stop by and join in on the fun and for a chance to win some fab stamps.

The image used on my card is called "Clowning Around". This is one of the new stamps from the Belles 'n Whistles Forever Young Collection. Isn't she sweet? Definitely one of the cutest clowns I've ever seen. The heart charms I used say "Live, Laugh, Love". I thought it went perfectly with this cute lil clown. I had alot of fun creating with this fab stamp.

Now onto some yummy blog candy. Would you like to win this cutie? Summer, owner of Belles 'n Whistles, is offering one lucky individual this adorable "Clowning Around" clear stamp.

The whole card is a delight & the co-ordination of it all an education. Love what you have done with the colours & the texture achieved with the lacing. Red, black & pink with grey work so well. Thanks for such a lovely insight into designing & colour combining.
