Belles n Whistles Star of Bethlehem





Good Morning everyone! I am so glad this week is over! My daughter and her family went camping this week and I miss them terribly! We usually go with them but we are not huge fans of where they stayed. They have no electricity and on such hot and humid days like we've been having I need my air conditioner running in my camper. I know that's totally cheating as far as camping goes but I'm spoiled. We've spent years camping in the sweltering head and torrential down pours so we decided to seek the comforts of a pop up camper. Ahhh that's the life! So all of my babies are home and I can't wait to squeeze them breathless.

So on to today's card. Yup it's another Christmas one. I won this super cute Belles n Whistles stamp last year for a challenge that I entered and never got a chance to ink it up. I decided to color these little darlings using my Distress Inks. Flowers and leafs are by Pataloo and Wild Orchids. I perched a little birdie amongst the flowers and also added two handmade stickpins.  

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.
Have a Sparkling Day
Hugs Bonnie

Oh wow hun this is stunning, your colouring is beautiful and I love the gorgeous embellies.
I'm so pleased your babies are home safe :) I've done the camping & tents malarky too many times, I'm too old to be sleeping on an air bed on the hard ground, give me a real bed & home comforts anyday lol
