Belles n Whistles All Customer Blog Hop

We are so excited to be a part of this special release. Along this hop you will find those new releases. And we, as customers of Belles ‘n Whistles, get to play along using any of our favourite BnW Stamps…
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.
For my card I have used the sweet, sweet image very appropriately named 'Sweet Dreams' which I was lucky enough to win in one of the Belles n Whistles challenges just a few weeks ago. Isn't little Eden the sweetest baby ever? I have followed a sketch but also added a little surprise tag at the top of my card. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and even remembered to photograph the inside for you too, although I left if quite plain.
