It's Tea Time! - Belles 'n Whistles DT

Hello Dear Friends and Happy TGIF :-)! I hope you all had a fabulous week and are looking forward to a nice and relaxing weekend! Well I know mine wont be that relaxing because we are still replacing our windows but planning on doing the last one on Saturday, YAY! However, after that everything is nice and new and thats why I'm still looking forward to it. In the course of all this I also rearranged our dining room and in our bay there we have now a nice separate sitting area. Can't wait sitting there and enjoying my coffee or tea. Like Belle is enjoying her cup of tea here on my card. Isn't she just adorable sitting there on the stump and savor cookies, tea and fresh air? This adorable new clear stamp from the Belles 'n Whistles Spring Cleaning and Summertime Collection called 'Tea Time' is now available HERE!

I made this card for a friends birthday, who also likes to sit outside enjoying a cup of coffee. Do you have a favorite place where you like to sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee?

Belle is colored with Copics and I added Stickles for some highlights. The flowers are from Magnolia and I added Stickles to them as well for some more glitz. Magnolia flowers and Stickles can be found at Roses on Paper where I also bought mine. The DP I've used is from Cloud 9 Design. Tools: Spellbinder Pendant & Nesties, Rock Fern Punch from the Punch Bunch. Sentiment is a stamp from The Greeting Farm.

This is also my entry for the ongoing challenge at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges, one of my favorite Challenge blogs! Priscilla always makes awesome inspiring sketches!

Copics I've used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E01, E11, R000, R20
Hair: Y11, Y21, E97, E99
Pinks: R000, R30, R20, R32
