Blog Hop for Bella



Today we are doing a very special blog hop to bring some smiles to an AMAZING little girl named Bella. Bella is an 8 year old girl from NH, who over Easter came down with a near fatal infection that has left her without her arms and legs. She is very lucky to be alive as doctors didn't think she would recover from this illness. Bella is a true fighter and you can read more about her incredible story here: Bella's story as well as make donations if you would like. Erin over at Scrap, Stamp, and Be Merry came up with this awesome idea to host 4 blog hops, in order to shower Bella with some love and smiles from all over the world to show her how truly inspiring she is!

There is an awesome Grand Prize too for all you Fabulous card makers out there that join us in our mission to fill Bella's mailbox with love. Check out the Grand Prize package here.

If you have just come across my blog, you will want start at Denise's blog. If you came here from Cory's blog you are on the right track.


For my card I chose to send this cute little card to Bella using this adorable image from Squigglefy which is of course colored with Copics and the papers are from a MME stack. Bella's story makes me think about how much we take for granted in life and how we all need to take time to enjoy the little things because you never know when something like this could happen to your family.

I would like to offer a little candy for those of you that would like to play along- anyone who makes a card, links up in comments below, and sends to Bella will be put in a drawing to win 3 free images of your choice from The Stamping Boutique.

Now head on over to Jude's Blog to see her wonderful creation! Remember the hop runs until Monday the 28th so you have plenty of time to get your card made, new hop starts on 29th.

Send your cards to:
The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry NH
03053 USA


Hugs,
Christy
