Nicole Rixon, the owner of Sweet Stamp Shop, put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie knew it, it took flight! Because Julie is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of 'working overtime' for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done. It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon. If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click - just visit The Sweet Stamp Shop Blog and click on the 'Operation Julie's Smile - Donate' button (the complete list of blogs is available there as well, in case you have gotten lost along the way). We know times are tough for everyone, and any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500. You have all weekend to hop around, comment and be eligible for prizes.
Here is the card I made for today's hop. It uses a sketch (which I flipped) from Jimmi's Circles Sketch for the Hope You Can Cling To over at Splitcoaststampers - a card drive created to generate cards for the cancer patients at MD Anderson Canter Treatment Center and their families to use while they are there in addition to raising overall breast cancer awareness - and a cute stamp from Lili of the Valley:
I added LOTS of glitter to her hat, the edges of her coat, and the ice and colored her in with Copic markers. I layered three different punches for the sentiment and used some DP from K.I. Memories Holiday Fun stack. I hope this card will make Julie, and whoever receives it at the hospital, smile. :)
It also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
- Inky Impressions Challenge 17 (IIC27) - Show Your Support/Monochromatic pink,
- Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes, and
- Fab & Funky Challenge - Die cuts or Punches.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! :)
