Belles 'n Whistles & Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day Everyone! May God Bless our service men and women who have fought for our freedom in the


past and now!

I have been trying to stash up on my Birthday Cards so I do not have to rush at the last minute and this is one of them. I used Belles 'n Whistles "A Pen Friend" and colored her with my Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol. I used my "heart" Cuttle Bug folder for the background. The DP is from Basic Grey's "Offbeat" and the ribbon from SU's Blue Bayou, which matched perfectly. I used SU's Chocolate Chip in back of the Deckled Nestabilities. Then Copper Pearls on the bow and side. The sentiment came from JustRite's Birthday Kit.

Sry so short, but I am spending the rest of my day off having fun with my wonderful family!!

Thank you for stopping by and again, God Bless our Service Men and Women!
