Blog Hop for Bella week 2

I am sure many of you have heard about the harrowing ordeal a young girl called Bella is going through. Erin and Denise have organised a series of blog hops to raise awareness of this young girl who has recently suffered from a terrible virus which has left her severely physically disabled. You can read more about her story on her homepage Bella Tucker.Org

This is the 2nd card I am sending to her :-) I hope you all join in and send her a card ,, it doesn't have to be a new one ! :-)

I made this card several weeks ago using the lovely House Mouse Napping on a Thistle stamp from Simon Says Stamp :-)

Hope you all join in and send heaps of cards to Bella :-)

The theme for the next fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge was chosen by Helen :-) She decided on the theme

'N' for Noel with the optional extra of Embossing :-)

copied from Wikipedia :-
Noel (or noël, sometimes written as nowell in English) is an alternate word for Christmas. The word comes from the French word Noël meaning "Christmas"

So ,, any Christmas creation will do !! :-)
