A Card For Bella

Bella Tucker is an 8-year-old girl who attends South School Elementary in Londonderry, New Hampshire.  Bella came down with a near fatal infection on Easter Sunday. Doctors gave little hope for this third graders’ survival, but after five days in a coma she miraculously survived.
Unfortunately, her survival from this infection was not without significant cost.  The infection caused extensive tissue damage, and on April 27, 2010, Bella underwent quadruple amputation surgery and is currently facing an extremely long and hard recovery at Children’s Hospital in Boston with extensive rehabilitation to follow, as she learns to live life without her limbs.
Bella is part of a gymnastics team with the daughter of a fellow stamper.  As  a stamping community everyone is reaching out in any way they can.  You can help support Bella and her family too by visiting http://www.bellatucker.org/

There are, as always, generous hearts out there holding Blog Hops for Bella.  If you would like to make a card for Bella please do and then visit Denise to start the hop for this week and get the address for Bella’s card.  I hope every one of you will find it in your heart to give to this beautiful little girl.

This is my card for Bella.  She is a Sugar Nellie called Fragile Beauty stamped on Neenah paper.  Then I colored my own background with my copics to match the image (it took time but it was great fun).  Cardstock is Stampin Up Regal Rose, Purely Pomagranate and Basic Black.  I used two border punches and a little heart charm and of course bling:)
I tried to show you a better shot of the punches and bling but it didn’t work very well.  The copics used are:  E50  E51  R20, YR23  Y21  Y23, RV32  RV34  R39, G14  FYG2, B21  B23, Y06  YR04, E31  E35, Spicas.

I hope you enjoy this card and you get busy and make one for Bella too.  If I can make one anyone can LOL.  I am very bad about making cards as you can all see from my blog.  I’m trying to get better about it though.
