Wishes for Bella Blog Hop!

When my friend Erin asked me to participate in the Blog Hop for Bella, I just couldn't say "no"..

This hop is really about a very brave little girl, Bella. Bella is a member of the same gymnastics team as Erin's daughter. You can read the story about this little brave girl HERE. The gym, Bella's school and many members of the local community are working hard to raise money to help the Tucker family. Erin wanted to do something to raise Bella's spirits and let her know that people from all over the world are thinking of her and wish her the best on the hard road ahead she has. We are looking for everyone to shower Bella with cards for the next month. Please help us help her by making and MAILING as many cards as you can to help her smile each day. The mailing address is...

The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry NH
03053 USA

There will be a hop each week for the next 3 weeks to keep the smiles coming! And lots and lots of candy for all of you!!!! Once you have made and mailed a card, please post the card on your blog and link it using THIS LINK TO THE GRAND PRIZE. Here you can read about the grand prize worth over 150$$$$$$. You can enter as many times as you like, as long as you are entering cards you are mailing to Bella! Let her know we are thinking of her or mail her a funny card to get her to giggle!

This is the card that I am going to mail to Bella.. This card measures 6" x 6" and features one of the newly released La-La Land Crafts stamps, this is Snorkel Sherman :-) This cat makes me smile and I hope this card brings a smile to Bella's face too.

Best Creations designer paper. Sealife glitter stickers are from MAMBI, so lucky to have them left from my scrapbooking days, they were just PERFECT to create the scene for this silly cat ;-) Fish and bubbles are raised on the foam tape. The cat is mounted on the paper spring. I will show you in my post tomorrow how I made it, it gives so much dimension and it also kind of interactive.. Cat was colored with Copic Markers.

You can buy this Snorkel Sherman stamp in La-La Land Crafts online store, just click HERE. Oh, and this stamp comes with three coordinating sentiments!!! Check it out!!

Now.. Don't forget that your next stop on this Blog Hop is Erin :-)

Happy Hopping!!
