Bella's 3rd Birthday Bash Blog Hop


Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! Did you know that Bella is officially 3 years old? We're celebrating Bella's birthday with a giant blog hop today, and there's a lot of fun to be had! If you just happened across my blog, you'll want to hop back to the beginning at Blogabella! If you just arrived here from Kathleen's blog, then you're right on track!

For my card for the Bash, I chose to use this adorable new Lollipop stamp that I just got this week from Stamping Bella! All the Lollipop stamps are adorable, but as soon as I saw Gracie here, I knew I wanted to stamp her and paper-piece her dress! And I did just that with some paper from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird mini-deck. This is actually a thank you card for a very special friend!
There are 3 Gift Certificates worth $100 each in Stamping Bella Bucks along the blog hop route! Can you believe that? Three gift certificates worth $100 each!!! How exciting! It's a big undertaking, but you'll want to leave a comment on each blog to try to win one of those awesome chances to shop to your hearts content at Stamping Bella! You never know where it might be hidden! Even I don't know! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7th on Blogabella! So hurry on over now to Laurel's blog to continue hopping, and good luck trying to win one of those wonderful prizes!

And many, many thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
