Cards for Bella Hop week 3

It is now week 3 of a 4 week series of hops to make cards for Bella that have been organised by Erin and Denise :-) We are hoping that she is swamped in an avalanche of cards :-)

As many of you will know, Bella had a very nasty virus which resulted in the loss of all her limbs. As you can imagine this is a very traumatic time for her and her family so we are hoping that by sending cards to her she will know that the whole world is thinking of her and sending lots of love her way :-) You can read her story on Bella tucker.org and any donations will be gratefully received too ,, Bella is going to need alot of rehabilitation her home will need alterations too,,, the bills will be HIGH !!! You could also buy a beautiful bracelet that has been designed especially for this fundraising appeal :-) You should go to see it it is stunning !! :-)

If you arrived here from the lovely and super talented Stacy's Blog you're going the right way,, if not you may wish to start at the begining on Denise's Blog :-)

I made this card for Bella (my 3rd one) following the fab sketch on the Creative Inspiration Challenge The image is a Penny Johnson for Stampavie stamp called Bird and Bear
from Simon Says Stamp :-) Isn't this cute !! I hope Bella likes it ! :-) I coloured the image with Prisma pencils and copics. The papers are BG Green at Heart and the white clouds and kite are Hero Arts stamps ,, these were masked and the sky was sprayed with copics using a copics air brush system ,,, love it !! :-) The 'hi' is also a Hero Arts stamp ,, the ribbon was in my drawer and the twine was pulled out of a weaved mesh ribbon :-) ,,, there is green twine there too barely visible ! I finished with a few Robins Nest Dew Drops too

Heidi at Simon Says Stamp has very kindly not only sponsored a prize for the hops but she has sponsored my candy too :-) thanks Heidi :-)

So this is the lovely candy that you can win from my blog !! a load of gorgeous Hero Arts goodies :-) All you have to do is complete the hop and send a card to Bella ,,, It does not have to be new ,, I am sure most, if not all of you have a stack of cards waiting for a new home :-) Choose a card and link it with the blue frog.
All the girls who are taking part as designers on the hop are of course eligible for the candy too :-)

Here is Bella's address for you to send your card

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