Skipping Stones Designs: Hop(e) for Haiti

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop(e) for Haiti. I know that when the 35 second earthquake struck on January 12th we really had no idea of the massive devastation that was yet to be seen from Haiti.... Each card on this hop today will be auctioned off on Ebay with all of the proceeds going to the Red Cross in support of the Haitian Relief Effort. Here are two cards I made for this special Hop(e) for Haiti using the stamp sets Healing Wings and Funny Coffee ...






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.

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 my friend Deb Felt’s blog.

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!! You can find a complete list of the designers participating on the Skipping Stones Design Blog.

Thank you for stopping by and your next stop is Jeanne Tomshack.
Blessings,
