A Bloom For You ~ Belles 'n Whistles





























Hello All! I cannot believe it is already June! And it is HOT where I live...like all last week it was in th upper 90's. I am not good with heat peeps! When I get too hot, I am not a happy camper...so, I stay where there is air conditioning. Wonder how people lived before we had air conditioning...guess I am spoiled in that way. I pray for the people who have no choice but to work outside in this heat.







Anyhoo, on to my little creation here...I used Belles 'n Whistles "A Bloom For You" image and colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. This is probably my favorite coloring choice. I did sponge around her with SU's Bashful Blue. The DP came from Paper Trey Ink and it is called Hibiscus Burst 2009 Bitty Dot Basics. I added a buckle from Michael's around the Hibiscus Burst ribbon from PTI. The sentiment is from Justrite's Happy Birthday Kit and I cut it out with Petite Circles from Spellbinder's Nestabilities Labels 5. I used a Cuttlebug Border Folder on the top and bottom of the card and then added the rhinestones to the side.



The little box I made came from Creative Cuts and More. The color fit perfectly with the DP I used on the card. I also used CC&M's Tacky Red Tape to hold the box together. The tags were also cut from Nestabilities Labels 5 and I added the sentiments from Justrite's Happy Birthday Kit. The flowers came from my stash.

I hope you like my little creation, I already know the Birthday girl who will be receiving this. Her name is Denise and she has worked with me in my office for 25 years. She is a wonderful friend and coworker.

Okay, I am off to spend the rest of my day with my DD and her family! Thank you for your visit and I hope each of you have the very best upcoming week!!

This is adorable! The card is as cute as can be, but that beautiful little box of tags is just fabulous!
We were sweltering in 96 degree heat for a few days, so I hear you on staying where it's cool! It's cooled down today thank goodness, but I know that heat will be back before long! Stay cool and take care!

Look at this adorable set! Too, too cute! I LOVE the fresh colors and all the sweetness. I've been disappointed in our weather this year, but I know I'd be good for nothing in the kind of heat you're having. Why can't it just be perfect? Okay, asking too much, I know. Take care, Velta!

Elena said...

Wow! What a gorgeous gift set! Really like the box and card you created, Velta! And look at all amazingly done tags! You are so talented!
Hope the weather is not so hot at your place. It is not so much fun to be outside in this kind of heat.
