Vintage card

Happy Monday to all of you!

First of all we want to thank you for participating in last weeks challenge. We hope that you will show us some beautiful cards this week to.
Remember that you are allowed to use stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell, not only BnW stamps.

This week we want you to show us a Vintage card.

Don't forget:  ANY Elisabeth Bell Stamp is welcome, but if you use a BnW stamp you may have a 2nd entry for the prize draw.  To enter your 2nd entry, Simply upload your BnW card/project in the BnW Photo gallery.
The entries there will be counted in the random drawing as well. =)

Here are the creations from the BnW design team members


Anything BUT Winter Winner and Top 3

Happy Monday!

First of all - a big thank you to all the ladies that participated in our challenge. I would just like to remind you - you need to use a stamp from Elisabeth Bell design to follow the BnW rules. It's simple as that. The BnW DT will remove any entries not following this rule.

So are you curious - who's the lucky winner (picked by Random org) from our Anything But Winter challenge? Well - I will not keep you long - the lucky winner is: Pops
Please email Summer your contact details.

Then - if you remember - the hostess of each challenge will be picking Top3 from all the entries. Well - am I the lucky one - since I got the chance to pick the very first 3???!!! I can tell you - it was really hard. I wish I could make a top 10 list instead - but yes - I had to stick to the new rules and pick 3 talented ladies. Remember - no1 will get a Guest Design Spot with BnW for 2 Challenges.

Well here they are:
1. Mary Frances
2. Jacqui
3. Dena

Please send me an email so that I can send you the code for the TOP3 Badge and also - the themes for the upcoming 2 challenges that Mary Frances will be part of.

Anything BUT Winter

Happy Monday to you all!

Hope you are doing fine. I'm slowly recovering from another virus that completely knocked me....sigh.... So as you might guess by the topic of today's BnW Challenge - I'm done with Winter and looking forward to Spring and some sunshine.....

That's why I challenged the girls and you - to create something that don't have anything to do with Winter.

UPDATE:  Some exciting things have been happening with Belles 'n Whistles.  Summer has decided to allow ANY Elisabeth Bell stamp to be used for challenges. 

While we, here at BnW, will continue showcasing the gorgeous Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, you are not limited to ONLY BnW stamps.  As long as Elisabeth Bell Designed it, You can use it.  Whether it be one of Elisabeths Digi's, or her designs from BnW, Ladybug and Friends, SCACD, or Whiff of Joy.  And yes, even some of the old Sugar Nellie - Sweet Art Ebony Girls...  

Soooooo, those of you who DO use a Belles 'n Whistles image will have the opportunity to enter your name into the random drawing a 2nd time.  Here is how it will work.

Enter the challenge using a Belles 'n Whistles image as you normally would, but because you used a BnW image, you can then upload your card into Belles Photo Gallery, (link is on our side bar) under the corresponding challenge catagory. 
When the random number is chosen, those that are in the gallery will be included in the draw, with the exception of DT's cards...    I think this will give more people a chance to win, and gives our loyal BnW stamp users an extra chance at winning. 

That's not all.... The DT will be picking a Top 3 for each challenge. And you will get a badge to display proudly on your blog.  However, If you've gotten the 1st spot, you will also be given a chance to be on our GDT for the following week.  For instance,  a top 3 is chosen at the end of this challenge. If your card was listed as #1, it is announced on Jan 31st.  You will then become our GDT for Feb 14th.     Fun, Right???

Okay, now back to our dear Anki's Post....   

Before I show you what the girls have been up to - here's the lucky winner from last challenge: Kerri. Please send Summer your contact details.

And now - here's some sweet inspiration from the BnW ladies:






Add your project with Inklinkz below. Looking fwd to see what you create!

Kramis and thank you girls for the inspiration!
