Stamping Bella Birthday Blog Hop - Cakeabella and Prezzibella Cards

Welcome to the Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance sponsored by Stamping Bella! Today we're celebrating Emily's birthday! The Queen Bella herself will be 37 years young. If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

I own all da Bellas, but Cakeabella (my first card) is my favorite Birthday Bella stamp. She probably gets the most use out of all my stamps, lol. Since Emily has such a spunky personality, I wanted to just do something really fun with my second card. Orange has become a new favorite color for me and I don't color my Bellas blonde very often. I love how my card turned out with my Sassafrass paper.

You can click on each picture to view them larger.



Paper: My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Sentiment is CTMH
Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Copics, and Crystal Stickles

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. MWAH!

Don't forget, we have a birthday party tonight in the Stamping Bella Forum. We'll have challenges, more prizes, and of course we'll be chatting! Come join the fun with the Splitcoast Sistahbellas!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to {Kadie's blog}. Have a great day!
