Skipping Stones Blog Hop – Hop(e) for Haiti

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop(e) for Haiti. If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have come from Kim Teasdale's blog.
As a company, we wanted to do something to give back to the people who have been so devastated by the Haitian Earthquake. So we thought what better way than to invite some of our favorite stampers to join us in this cause. Each card you see on the blog hop today will be auctioned on E-bay with all proceeds going to the Red Cross in support of the Haitian Relief Effort (please check the Skipping Stones Design Website for the link to the auction). 100% of the proceeds of the Ebay auction and $2.00 from every stamp set purchased from February 16 - 22 will be donated to the Red Cross. We know that we can make a difference.
I'm so excited and honoured to be playing and hopping along with so many wonderful stamping friends! The Skipping Stones stamps are awesome! I've been playing with them like crazy! So you'll see more cards in days to come.
First up is a card I made for a little girl's birthday using the You Know You're Getting Old When set. Isn't this cake fun and whimsical!?! This card measures 5 x 5.
Stamps: You Know You're Getting Old When; Cardstock: White, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Dp; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Ribbon, Button, Thread, Stickles, Dimensionals, Nesties
My next card uses the same set You Know You're Getting Old When. I am loving this set...it's so funny! I added some Glossy Accents to the car windows and tail lights. Oh and lookie...I sewed again! I even stitched straight! This card measures 3 x 6.
Here is a shot of the inside of the card...
Stamps: You Know You're Getting Lucky When; Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist, So Saffron, DP; Inks: Memento Black, So Saffron; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Sponges, Sewing Machine, Glossy Accents, Dimensionals
Thank you for stopping by and your next blog to hop to is Karen Giron's Blog.
BUT before you go....
How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! There will be a few pre-release sets up for grabs hidden along the blog hop. The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!!
