Blogs for Boobies Card Auction

Well hello, my lovelies!  Today I am one of the designers helping Skipping Stones Design with their 7-day Blogs for Boobies blog hop and card auction!  More than 60 designers are posting various cards and projects with all money raised going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.



Sadly it's hard to find someone who hasn't been affected by breast cancer.  My mom lost her battle 20 years ago.  She's one of many relatives and special friends I've lost.  I'm proud to be a part of this blog hop and fund-raiser in memory of  those who've lost their battle and countless others who are currently battling breast cancer, and the many, many amazing survivors.

There are several ways you can help:

You can help by shopping at Skipping Stones Design.

Skipping Stones Design will be donating $2 per stamp set purchased between June 1 and June 14.  They are releasing six new sets as well!  Check out all their stamp sets right here.

You can help by bidding on the auction items.

****Bidding instructions***

1.  To bid on the card set I've posted today:
Leave a comment below with your bid amount and your e-mail address.
Starting bid is $5
Only comments on this post will be eligible for this card auction.
You MUST comment with an e-mail address to be able to bid.
Sorry, but comments without an e-mail address are invalid.

(FYI, during a silent auction bidders sign their name next to their bid.  So by including your e-mail address it is the electronic equivalent of signing your bid.)

2.  Comments will post in chronological order, so you will be able to see the current high bid.

3.  Return frequently to see if you've been outbid and to place a new high bid.
(Below in the comment field, you'll see a "subscribe to post comments" option.  Just subscribe if you would like notification of additional comments.)

4.  My auction closes at 8 p.m. Mountain Time on June 11.  The winning bid will be the highest valid bid at the close of the auction.  I will notify the winner by e-mail.  Skipping Stones Design will send the winner an invoice for the amount of the winning bid.  Once the invoice is paid, I will mail the set of cards to the winning bidder.  Please pay your invoice as soon as possible so I can get these out to you quickly!

You can help by spreading the word!

The more people who know about this event, the more money we can raise.  Please feel free to share this event with friends and family and/or on social media.

I'm totally into watercolor and these were simple and fun to make.  I used three different colors of Distress Inks on my craft mat and sprayed them with water.  Then I dragged the watercolor paper through several times until I was happy with the colors and coverage.  A little stamping with these gorgeous sets from Skipping Stones Design:  Heartsong and Uplifting, a smattering of sequins or a touch of Wink of Stella and done!

Remember to leave a comment with a bid and your e-mail address.  As always, comments without bids are most welcome too :)

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
