I made a telephone numbers magnet for the side of the refrigerator- all of the papers and images come with the download - so I just printed them, cut them out, popped some dimensional tape between them and inked the papers a little bit. I added some Russet Red Flower Soft on my dotted lines. Very easy and very fun! I do hope you will go check out our new episode!
So, I got out my Spellcaster Tilda, and told her, "Look, Miss Susan said this was to be a clean and simple card - so no flowers, no layers, no distressing, no glitz, no frou-frou." Well, I don't think she was very happy with this - I mean, after all I was using the Bo Bunny Peacock Lane - How could I not embellish that? I held strong and made this very CAS card.
I should have known better than to leave Spellcaster Tilda alone in my studio with her magic wand! I came back and found that suddenly there were layers, and ribbons, and flowers, and butterflies and stickles - All the things that we had agreed would not be on this card! I think Tilda even got into my Glimmer Mist and sprayed that clear butterfly! This certainly was no longer clean and simple.
So, if you are looking for a little magic, drop by the Beary Scrap and see what we have in store for you!

For my ribbon treatment, I decided this could not be girly either - so I layered 2 crocheted ribbons, 5/8" Ivory Crocheted Ribbon and 1.5" Brown crocheted ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to achieve the look I was going for.

Where is the summer going? My husband is a teacher, and he will soon have to go back to school! At Belles n Whistles, we want to keep that summer feeling going by seeing a little Fun in the Sun!
For my card, I used Little Eden. I decided that she would have fun watching the penguins hula dance for her!
I hope you will get a chance to play this week! You could win a BnW stamp of your choice!
