Wishes for Bella Blog Hop--WEEK #2--

Welcome to the Wishes for Bella Blog Hop Week #2
........if you got here from Fiona's blog then you are on the right track........if you are visiting my blog for fun & inspiration today, I urge you to pls take part in this hop.....
(It'll open up your heart & hopefully lift the spirits of a little girl & her family!)....
........so if you wish to start at the beginning of the hop pls go back to Denise's blog & start there!
We will be hopping for ONE WEEK (whenever you can make it out).............so I hope you have some comfortable shoes on!
************************
There are a couple of reasons for this blog hop:
1. To share the story of strength & courage of an 8 yr old girl &
2.To ask you to help her & her family in any way you can.
Meet Bella.........



You can read Bella's story here.
This vibrant-little-8 yr old-third grade-gymnast was struck with a near fatal illness on Easter Sunday 2010. She fought hard for 5 days in a comotose state & survived, but along with her survival came significant loss. As the near fatal infection caused extensive tissue damage, she had to undergo quadruple amputation surgery..................changing Bella forever.

This story really struck a chord with me, as I have a 9 yr old daughter who absolutely loves gymnastics & I absolutely love to watch her run, jump, twist & turn on those balance beams & dance mats! To have that taken away from me....from her.....would be so tragic & so sad! I simply had to get involved in these hops!

 As stated above, feel free to visit Bellas site to see how you can help. Send some love her way or heck even send her a card. A nice homemade card along the lines of 'thinking of you'. Your card does not have to be a new one, but you should be able to send it!

Should you decide to go this route ( as I am), here is the address:
The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry, NH
03053 USA

Below is the card I will be sending to Bella.
This is the second card that is coming from our homd to hers!
These Ballerina girls are from Lexi's Doodles & my card is a Stair Step Fold creation.
I incorporated a little hidden message slider to the back fold that when pulled out says 'praying for you' (second picture)


                            




Please continue to hop along to the rest of the participants blogs.
Your next stop will be Christy.

Also, to make matters more interesting.......Erin is offering up weekly prizes to whoever participates in the hop. This weeks prizes includes gifts from sponsors such as Whiff of Joy, Whimsy Stamps, Firecracker designs by Pamela & Chrissy Armstrong.
