Are you ready to go back to School?

Summer is almost a memory. School starts back here in less than a week - so to get you geared up at Delightful Challenges, we want to see back to school projects using the primary colors.

I chose Sitting Penny for my card. I think she is all set for the first day of class. There are some really cute images available at Digital Delights, so go grab one and join in on the fun. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Those Flowers have been Framed!

I know I shared this card on my blog earlier this week, but I thought I would tell you a little about my ribbon frame. Sometimes I get a ribbon that I think is so beautiful, I'm not sure how to use it! I loved this scalloped green trim, from Really Reasonable Ribbon the moment I saw it, but I wasn't sure what I should do with it. Then, I was working on a card and it just needed something to visually define my borders. This was the perfect place to highlight this gorgeous trim! To me, it almost makes a postage stamp type frame. I just loved the results - and the good news is - we have this trim in 6 colors - Woo Hoo! The stamps I used are from Heartfelt Creations.

Show us some fall colors

Autumn is just around the corner, and we would love to see some of those gorgeous fall colors on your Belle's N Whistles projects.

We had my dad's birthday party today, and I made this card for him. The fall colors were great for his card. I used the stamp Surprise. The papers were from Pink Paislee.

We hope that you will play with us this week at the BnW Challenge. Just be sure to use a Belles n Whistles stamp to be eligible to win a BnW stamp of your choice.

Animal Antics with Karen's Doodles

You know Karen has some adorable images using animals, and this week at the Karen's Doodles challenge we want to see some of those animals.

For my card, I used the Camping Bear. Isn't it a great image for the fall! We can't wait to see what you come up with.
