Welcome to the Hop...the “Blog Hop for Boobies,” that is. This amazing charity effort, put together by the fine people over at Skipping Stones Designs, is all about raising money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As you know, breast cancer has been a big part of my life the past two years, with my sweet mama just recently finishing up her treatments, so you bet I was on board when the fine folks at Skipping Stones asked me to participate in this valuable hop.
How does it work? Well, I’m joining a bunch of brilliant scrapbookers and paper crafters in making cards using Skipping Stones stamps. And the cards made will all be put in a silent auction, where you can bid on them. And your money goes towards breast cancer research. Pretty sweet, don’t ya think?
The cards in this post are the ones I’m auctioning (as a set). But my fun doesn’t stop at the cards. The winning bid will also receive a handmade fabric rosette bracelet like the one below (in the color(s) of your choice) along with your cards.
How to Bid
To bid, simply leave your bid amount in my comment section (suggested starting bid is $5.00) and keep an eye on the bidding to see if you remain in the lead. I will pay the shipping in the U.S., so 100% of the money will go the foundation.
The bidding will remain open until September 23rd, 8:00 pm MDT. Please pass the word onto your friends!
And please continue on in this happy hop by checking out the next fabulous blog on the list, by my sweet and talented friend Kim Kesti.
Also, in the spirit of helping and stamping (two delightful things), Skipping Stones is donating $2 from every stamp set sold this week to the fight against breast cancer, including some brand new releases. So you'll want to check out their website. If now isn’t a good time to buy stamps, I don’t know when is. Please, take some time to bid on cards (mine or any of the others in the impressive blog-hop line-up), and buy a stamp set or two while you’re at it. This is a positive and fun way to make a difference!
