Belles and Whistles Cutie.......

Good Morning!
I hope everyone in cyberland is doing good today!
It feels so cold here ~ in the 50's ~ but after the gorgeous
weather we have been having it is freezing!! LOL

Anyways my card for today uses this adorable
image from Belles and Whistles called
Belle with Laundry.  I think she is adorble
and I wish I looked this cute doing housework! LOL

My card today was intended for 3 challenges. The sketch
is from Friday Sketchers ~ last week so I am late with that ~
Roses on Paper wants layers and CCT's challenge is touchy feely.

The papers are Fancy Pants Design and PTI Kraft CS.
Flowers are from Prima and are covered with the
Rock Candy crackle paint and outlined with
Picket Fence crackle paint. The punch
is from Martha Stewart and the lace is from JoAnn's.
To get hinge design on my image I just cut
the smallest die from Labels 13 and covered it
with tattered rose distress paint!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you all
have a fabulous day and that none of you in Europe
are afftected to badly by the Volcanic Ash!
I keep reading about it and can't imagine what
that is like!!! (Must be alot to stop air traffic!)

(I cut out 6 card designs yesterday so if I get
the time to color them all in I will be back
several times this week!!! I was on a roll!)
