Wishes for Bella blog hop weeks 2

As I told you last Tuesday Erin has organised 4 blog hops for Bella. 8 year old Bella developed a serious illness at Easter. Although the survival rate was very low, she was a brave fighter and made it through a 5 day coma. Tragically, she lost her arms and legs to the disease. You can read the story in depth here.

Erin is asking that you make a card and send it to Bella to let her know that people are thinking of her. I will be part of the last blog hop on 13 July and I hope you will all join in as I will be offering a little candy. There are some fabulous prizes every week, details of which are at the end of the hop on Erin's blog. We are such a great community so please show Bella you care by sending a card today. The blog hop this week starts at Denise.

This is my second card for Bella, which features this gorgeous SN girl with her lamb. I cut her out and layered her onto Nestie cut embossed card.The papers are Wild Rose which were a gift from my blogging buddy Lisa. Marlene's sketch at The Sugar Bowl was quite a challenging one but I am really pleased with the result. The border was made with an MS trellis punch. I inked all the edges and the Prima flowers.
Other challenges:
Allsorts Embossing
The Crafty Pad Embossing
Crafty Cardmakers Inky Fingers
A Spoon Full of sugar Animal crackers
Practical Scrappers Border punch
