Happy Birthday Emily!



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.

I'm so excited to participate in my first blog hop! Especially in honor of one of the finest stamping ladies around, Emily, the creator/owner of Stampingbella. Emily is kind, generous and funny, such an inspiration to all of us stampers. If you want to find out more about her, check out her blog in the above link, be prepared to laugh, I told you she is funny.

Here is my card for Emily's birthday. I used Leaning Tower of Stella. I love all my Bella stamps, but my Stellas are some of my favorites, they just make me smile. Stella just has such sass about her! I used the Bella sketch challenge, BSC78, for the layout of this card. Fun sketch, I love the circle part!

Emily, hope your birthday is fabulous!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Arlene's blog, Scuba, Scraps & Stamps. 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. MWAH!
