This hop is really about a very brave little girl, Bella.  She is a member of the same gymnastics team as my daughter.  You can read her story HERE.  The gym, Bella's school and many members of the local community are working hard to raise money to help the Tucker family.  I wanted to do something to raise Bella's spirits and let her know people from all over the world and thinking of her and wishes her the best on the hard road ahead she has.  So I am looking for everyone to shower her with cards for the next month.  Please help me help her by making and MAILING as many cards as you can to help her smile each day.  The mailing address is...
The Bella Tucker Fund
P.O. Box 199
Londonderry NH
03053 USA

There will be a hop each week for the next 3 weeks to keep the smiles coming!  And lots and lots of candy for all of you!!!!  Once you have made and mailed a card, please post the card on you blog and link it using THIS LINK TO THE GRAND PRIZE.  Here you can read about the grand prize worth over 150$$$$$$.  You can enter as many times as you like, as long as you are entering cards you are mailing to Bella!  Let her know we are thinking of her or mail her a funny card to get her to giggle!

Erin, I tried to e-mail you personally, but my computer is not allowing it. This is my first time visiting your blog, and when i arrived, I was thrilled to see a blog hop for Bella. I am assuming your daughter goes to Phantom. My daughter attens Gym Village, and we were very sad to hear about Bella. Our Gym just did a collection for her , and I have run blog candy in honor of her and another child who needs some smiles.
Your card is Gorgeous, and I wanted to thank you for playing in this weeks Going Grey with Scrap-creations Challenge. I will be hopping along now. Take care from a fellow granite state gal!
