Belles 'n Whistles and Creative Cuts and More

Hello to all ~ I had to share this adorable clown image by Elizabeth Bell! Is she the cutest ? I used Spellbinders Deckled Edge Dies and stamped her with Momento Black Ink, then colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Cuttlebugs Swiss Dot Folder on the silver cardstock for the background. I also used Spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities using KaiserCraft Lilac Avenue Collection DP. The ribbon is swiss dot that I purchased at Hobby Lobby with a silver sparkle dot on top.

The Gable Box I purchased from Creative Cuts and More. So, so easy to put together using there wonderful Tacky Tape!! I added the flowers using the Lilac Avenue DP using Paper Trey Ink's Beautiful Blooms II Beautiful Die Collection. Inside I would have put a gift card, which this is the perfect size for it. This was made for my bestest buddy at work for her birthday...her favorite color is purple. She loved the clown card...the Gable Box I did not give to her, because I had other stuff that I wanted to give her...Please stop by Creative Cuts and More and check out all of their great stuff! Their prices are awesome and they have soo many ideas.

The weather here is improving...with the mornings in the 40's and the afternoons in the 70's. I felt like a different haircut yesterday and on a whim and had it cut just a little too short...I do not even know if I like it yet...but, it will grow out if I do not like it. I have been spending a LOT of time lately with my DD and her family in the last couple of weeks. What a Blessing and Just Memories for me. Please have a great week ahead and I hope you enjoy my latest post...I am working on some new projects...and hopefully will be posting more regularly again. Be safe and take care and thank you, as always for your sweet comments...it makes my day :)
