Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you all have had a good weekend!!  I spent most of the weekend huddled inside since it has been the coldest ever since the winter begun...7 degrees!!!  Granted we have been spoiled with mostly spring like temperatures.  But that is a tad chilly in my book.  We also got 6 inches of snow so my crazy girls played in the snow with the biggest kid of husband Scott.  LOL!  He had a great time pulling the girls on the toboggan with his quad.

Today I am popping in to share a tag I made using the latest Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create: Belles n Whistles!!

This week's Product Spotlight Sale is: Belles 'n Whistles
All Belles 'n Whistles Stamps are on sale 25% off through Sunday night

The store is currently out of stock of a few designs but have a restock delivery on the way - they should be instock by Thursday. However, the following designs are on back order and will not be available for the sale: Patches 'n Braids, Sweet Apples, and Sweet Summer Days.

The sale is "while supplies lasts".

Here is my creation using  Watering from Belles n Whistles:

For my tag, I used Watering from Belles n Whistles.  The image is colored with copics.  In addition to the image, the pink (1/2 inch) wrinkled ribbonwhite silk ribbon, and love charm are also available in the Stamp and Create store.  The lace and  floweret ribbon were given to me in a RAK by my dear friend, Sabrina.  The dp and image panel is framed with the Fleur De Lis Rectangles from Spellbinders. The sentiment is computer generated and framed with the Twisted Metal tags and accentes dies from Spellbinders.  The shape of the tag uses the Spellbinders Labels Labels 8 which I embossed with a SU embossing folder. The rose button is from my stash.  The dp is from My Mind's Eye.

Did you know that Stamp and Create also has weekly candy!!

Hi Chris,
