Bella Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance!


Welcome to the Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

For my card I used Partygirlabella! Isn't she fabulous? This is the image that got me hooked on Bella stamps in the first place. I saw her on Splitcoast and decided I needed her! :D Anyway, since she was a little too big for my image panel I cut off the top and restamped the balloons so that I could pop them up. I think it creates a neat look! To even out the image I also popped up the cupcake. I colored her with my Stampin' Write Markers and used this My Mind's Eye paper for my color pallett. For the finishing touches I used some Certainly Celery ribbon and blue rhinestones. The sentiment is actually a sticker that I recieved in the mail from some magazine company but it fits perfectly! The sketch I used is this past week's SCS Bella sketch.

Well, that's all I have for this post! I get to spend some time with my friend Leanne today! :D Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Colleen Wold. She's your last stop! Have a great day!

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the Splitcoast forum.
