Happy Bella Birthday Hop!

Welcome to the Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

It's Em's birthday today and what a fun way to celebrate!!! A hop in honor of the Queen Bella herself! :) Happy Birthday dear Em - have some cake & ice cream for me!!

I pulled out another one of my new stamps from Stamping Bella, Violet Bitty Bloom - is she not sweet?!! And I got another chance to play with purple tones again! The little crocheted flower was made using Nichole's pattern and some DMC floss. I have to say, I'm not a fan of using DMC floss to crochet, although next time I might separate it. It was very bulky and I kept getting my hook caught in one or two threads. I think I may crochet tight (which is how I knit too so makes sense!).

Anyway, I hope you like your card Em - I'll get it in the mail to you soon!! Next stop on the Birthday Blog Hop is Jess' Obsession.

Cardstock: Plum Pudding, White (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: Hip Hip Hooray Crosshatch (Karen Neuberger - Paper Salon), Stamps: Violet Bitty Bloom, Happy Birthday (Stamping Bella), Ink: Memento, Accessories: Nestabilities, Corner Rounder Punch, Bella Baubles, yellow adhesive pearl, white gel pen, Copic markers, crocheted flower & button, Plum Pudding ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
