Happy Birthday Bella!

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blop Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.
The card featured today is based on a sketch from the Just Christmas and Birthday cards challenge blog. I used Joanne’s adorable “buttony bow” idea…do ya love those bows or what!?! :) Her fab tutorial on how to make a “buttony bow” of your own can be found here.

Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to the blog of the awesome "buttony bow" tutorial creator, Joanne as she is the next Bella lovah on the hop.
