A Card for Bella

From Cheribella’s Blog:

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 the card I made for Bella:

It’s late, so the picture quality is a little dark, but I wanted to get this posted in time to enter into a few challenges (-:

I will be entering this card in:

Crafty Sentiments

Doodle Palace


Stamp, Scrap and Be Merry


I got home from work today and took a few pictures during daylight and I touched up the sentiment.

I originally used my Cri-Kit pens for the sentiment and I just didn’t like how it turned out.
So I touched it up and filled it in a little and I think it looks better!

Here’s the new shots:
