Here's the card I created for this hop! :)


I thought it would be FUN to create a sweet card for Halloween!! :)
I used the set I designed for The Craft's Meow - Happy H'owl'oween!! And I used some Mandarin twine from The Twinery!! Hope you like it! :)

Here is a little history and the story behind this Hop:

“The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae.  You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts, rubber stamps and more.  What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child.  It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth  replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out.  But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.

Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!
Because she 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.  Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.”

Thanks for joining us!!

Now you can HOP on over to SHERI TWING!!
BEFORE you hop away, be sure to leave a comment here so you don't miss out on your chance at winning the amazing prizes up for grabs! And if you can, please make a donation to help bring our dear friend Julie's smile back! Thank you!


IMPORTANT BLOG HOP INFORMATION:
  • There could be a break somewhere in the chain, so please bear with us.  A complete list of blogs on the hop is posted on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog.  You have a complete weekend to get around to all the blogs to be eligible for prizes by leaving comments.


HAPPY HOPPING!!
:) :) :) Jenny
