Belles 'n Whistles Blog Hop! The "Forever Young Release"

Wowee...........eeee..........  I have been dying for this day to come!!!  I'm so so happy that you are here!!!
Welcome to the "Forever Young" Release & Blog Hop.

As you may already know, Belles 'n Whistles is having a blog hop today.  It's release day, and HOLY COW these new stamps are absolutely precious!!!  Designed by Elisabeth Bell, she's really outdone herself this time.  I know I ALWAYS say that, but it's SO True!  If you happened upon my blog by accident, we'd love for you to hop along with us today.   So please make sure you start back at the  Belles 'n Whistles Blog. 

Okay, soooooo, you should have arrived here from our lovely "Lilians Blog" Isn't her work amazing?  I think she should teach classes, don't you? 

Alright, I have another question for you....Do you think I should just jump right in, and show my card, or give you all the details first?  Hmmmm, decisions, decisions....

Oh heck, I think I will just show you this adorable little girl.  But PLEASE keep reading for the rest of the details on how YOU CAN WIN a brand new set of these precious kids.


Oh ... every time I see this little sweetie, my heart just melts, isn't she just a doll?

This stamp is called "Sweet Dreams"  and she sure is SWEET!!!  Not only that, but guess what?  You can actually use this stamp as a boy too.  I'm sure you'll see me do that very soon.

I colored her with copics, and used DCWV papers.  And those flowers, do you see those sweet little pink rosebuds?  A gift from our very own sweet Jacque.  Thank you Jacque, as you see, they are just perfect for this card!  =)

I didn't use any Belles 'n Whistles stamps on the inside, but I just HAVE to show you the inside, because the sentiment is just so true, and makes this sweet little angel that much more precious.

Okay, I guess it's time to get down to the nitty gritty....  LOL  Here's the scoop!
Now this is very important!!!!!  Are you paying attention???  LOL  Oh aren't I the silly one today? 

**** You are definitely going to want to leave comments on each blog that you visit and then again at the Belles `n Whistles Blog at the end. BECAUSE..... One randomly chosen winner will receive the ENTIRE set from this "Forever Young" Collection!  Yes, that's right..... THE WHOLE SET!!!!  There are 8 GORGEOUS stamps in all.  I can't wait to see who will win them.

Okay, before we move on, I have one more VERY IMPORTANT piece of information for all of you.....

****
Pre-orders for stamps start TODAY.  Orders will ship out on June 22 and June 23.  The store will be closed from June 23rd - July 5th.  No orders will be taken during this time so order before June 22 to have your stamps ship prior to closure. 

Okay, now it's time to move on.... and..... we're moving on to.... Hmmmmmm, where do you want to go?  Well never mind that, it's time for you to get another treat, so head over to the blog of Our very own talented ELISE.  Just wait, you're going to be floored with her amazing creativity. 

Thanks so much for stopping in, and hopping along with us...  Don't forget to leave your comments along the way, and Good Luck on winning the whole set!
