Stamping Bella Mini Release in memory of Emily Da Bella

Hi Lovelies....

Well, today's post is a sad one... but also a celebration too.  Today would have been our lovely Emily Da Bella's birthday - and we miss her so much!  But the celebration part... is that there is a mini new release at Stamping Bella in her honour and to celebrate her life.  

My first card uses this gorgeous stamped image of Emily...  it's how I'll always remember her... busy busy, but never too busy to say a quick hello and let us know she was there if we needed her.  The 'MWAH' is exactly her and how she signed off when saying goodbye.  I'll never hear that word again without thinking of her.

This image is a charity fundraiser - all profits from the sale of this stamp will be donated to the Emily Block Memorial Fund... you can find details here:  - it will go to support Art Therapy for children - what a fabulous cause and in memory of such a wonderful lady.

Now... like Emily always used to have... there is a Birthday Sale - so until 5 July, you can get 25% off storewide... apart from the new release which you can get 10% off - however, the Uptown Girl Emily Da Bella stamp is excluded from the sale (for obvious reasons) - as are any existing offers.

OK.... that's it from me today.  I'll be thinking of Emily - hope you will too when you look at our creations over on the Stamping Bella Blog.  She was one of the world's lovely people - and was taken from us far too young.  Life is short - so we need to live it well and celebrate it!

 Hugs to all...
