Belles and Whistles DT call......

Good Afternoon!!
I had a fabulous week-end!
I hope you all did too and that
you enjoyed your Mothers Day!

Anyways here is card I got made up
for the Belles and Whistles DT call! I just adore
every and all Elisabeth's stamps so I had to go for this!
Not to mention that the DT and Summer are as sweet
as can be!! I loved my guest spot with them!
This cutie is called tea time.
The sketch is from the Truly Scrumptious challenge.
(I have also included the option of a hidden message!)

The papers are from Memory Box and Webster's Pages.
I have colored with distress inks and used some stickles for
my homemade flowers ~ MS punch. The sentiment
is a rub-on from Melissa Frances and the lace is
from JoAnn's.  Again I have used a ton of crackle paint!

Before I am off to the girls first tennis lessons I want
to show a picture of Kelsey in her first communion dress!!
This was a big accomplishment for me as she is so not girly!
She was NOT going to have a veil so I got these cute
ribbons here as well as the dress.  In the end I loved what she got!

I just can't believe she is this old already!
I miss the (very) chubby little girl who
used to say the funniest words and gave
me very wet kisses!! LOL

Anyways I hope you all have a lovely week!!!
It doesn't really feel like May here! I
went out to put some clothes on the line and it
was almost too cold!!!
