BnW Spring Release Blog Hop!!!


****** My Sneak Peek Candy Winner will be announced tomorrow April 7th!!!******

Welcome to the Belles 'n Whistles Spring Release Blog Hop!!! Today is the day! 16 new stamps are being released and are available and shipping as of today!!! There are 2 new collections, the Fairy Friends Collection and the Sweet Art Girls Collection. I'm sure the Sweet Art Girls are familiar to some of you already ;-)

If you arrived here today from Lynda's blog you are on the right track. If not please go back to the Belles 'n Whistles Inspirational blog to start the hop off right!

If you like to win some prizes please leave comments on all participating blogs! There will one grand prize, a $65 Gift Certificate for one randomly drawn winner on the Belles 'n Whistles Inspirational blog! To be eligible for this prize you must leave comments on all blogs!!! In addition each DT member is giving away 1 stamp of the highlighted stamps on their blogs! Blog Hop runs until April 8th when the Winners will be announced!

On my first card I like to show you today I used 'Lilipad Dreams' from the Fairy Friends Collection. I colored using only Prisma Pencils and no Blender. DP is from Creative Impressions and MME. Dies are Spellbinders and Magnolia. Border punch is from MS. I added Stickles for some glitz.




On her wings I added (on top of the Prismas) Twinkling H2O's 'Iridescent Blue'. You can see it on this picture as I took it from a different angle.




The inside is decorated to match the outside.





The DP I used here is from KaiserCraft. I colored her with Copics this time. Punches/dies use are from EK Success and Marianne Design. All embellies are from my stash.


Now it's time for you to hop on. Your next stop is Lils' blog! Thanks for playing along in our release hop and don't forget to leave your comments on each stop of the hop to be eligible for all the prizes!!! Have fun and good luck to all!

Hugs,
