Stamp a Recipe Something!

Happy Friday, All! Thanks for coming by today! I'm looking forward to a day off and going to hang out with my bestest friend and the kiddos!  Before I head out, I wanted to share our challenge at Stamp Something this week! It's a recipe:   1 Image, 1 Ribbon, 1 paper. 

So I decided to whip up this "thank you" card for one of my customers.  I went with Reeta from GF.  I colored this adorable image with Copics and paper-pieced the skirt.  I used my Nesties to frame it and a white gel pen to draw the designs around the frame.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. The flowers are little silver ribbon flowers I found on clearance at Ben Franklin.  The ribbon is a $1 clearance find at Wal-Mart.  Paper is Basic Grey.  Thanks for looking and please visit the amazingly talented DT for more eye candy! 

The Crafty Pad: Animal fun
The Pink Elephant: 3 layers, 2 die cuts, and ribbon
Little Red Wagon: Nesties
Stampin' B's: Polka dots

For those of you who don't know what is going on, this is my contribution for sending Wishes for Bella a RAK Blog Hop Event.  Here in NH, USA, Bella Tucker (a young girl in a nearby town) has undergone some major life altering trauma.  After a serious illness, this vibrant young lady lost all of her limbs.  The family is devastated and needs all sorts of support!  For more information, please visit

So what we are doing is getting as many cards as we can sent to Bella to brighten her days! 
If you would like to participate, which I hope you do, please mail cards to:

The Bella Tucker Fund
