New Karen Middleton digi designs


Good Morning all.
Here are 2 cards with the new release at Cuddly Buddly.
I am delighted that Cuddly Buddly now have the Enchanted Wishes new release. Pop over to the shop to see the wonderful designs.

This card is done with Butterfly Angel. Isn't she adorable. I did a Parchment card and the image fitted just nicely in the centre.

This card is using the Star Angel.
Unfortunately the photo doesn't do this justice as the glitter on her wings is catching too much light. It looks wonderful in real life.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Today we are celebrating the rebirth of the darling SweetArt girls designed by none other than Artist Elisabeth Bell. Belles ‘n Whistles now has a total of 17 SweetArt girls in their store. They were just too beautiful to be left sitting in the archives. Elisabeth Bells talent deserves better than storage, don’t you think?

If you have just popped in, it would be great if you started in the beginning, and hopped along with us. You will find the master list of participants over on the Belles ‘n Whistles Inspirational Blog. To keep things easy, please follow that list and leave a comment on each blog. Do you know why? Because YOU could win a stamp from Belles ‘n Whistles, just for leaving some love along the way. There will be FIVE winners chosen randomly from comments that have been left along the way. No one knows who’s blog the winners will come from.

So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or Lemonade and enjoy all the fun and exciting things we, the Belles ‘n Whistles Customers, have to share with you today.

Hope you enjoy the hop and don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning a prize.
