So I have obviously neglected my blog, but what better reason to return than for Blog 4 Boobies Card Auction. The wonderful people at Skipping Stones Design organized this amazing blog hop with over 65 designers across seven days. I was so surprised and honored to be asked to join this great cause. So let me show you what I have.
I used the Damask Darling and Always Here stamp sets to make three cards. When bidding, keep in mind that you are bidding on all three cards. The background and butterflies are stamped on Tim Holtz watercolor paper and watercolored. The other supplies were things I pulled from my stash.
What do you think? I don't know about you but I love stamping and these stamps were a breeze to work with. The designs stamped cleanly and did really well on the watercolor paper.
Here's the info on how you can be a part of this blog hop. Thanks for stopping by!

There are 3 ways that you can help, and join in on the fun(draising)!
1. You can help by Shopping!
For every stamp set that you purchase during June 1st through the 14th Skipping Stones Design will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about! Skipping Stones Design is celebrating “blogs 4 boobies” with the release of two new stamp sets!
2. You can help by Bidding!
Another way you can help us raise money for the Komen Foundation is to bid on a project or card along the blog bounce (hop). YES! EVERY Single card/project along the Blogs 4 Boobies bounce is up for auction. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. Your Bid not only includes the card or project but shipping to your home as well. Please Note IF you want to bid, and live outside the U.S. we would request that you pay the difference of shipping charges between where you live and what it would cost to ship within the US. *See how to place a bid for more detailed instructions.
If you are the highest bidder 7 days after the first post date 8:00 p.m. mountain time then you WIN the card/project that you bid on.
3. You can help by Telling Your Friends~
Help us spread the word about “Blogs 4 Boobies” the more people that know, the more money we can raise!
How to place a bid on a card/project
Find the comment section of the blog that shows the “Blogs 4 boobies” card or project that you want to buy.
Please note you may only bid on the card/project shown in the specific “Blogs 4 Boobies” post. Any bids not placed on the correct post will be considered invalid.
Once you are in the “blogs 4 Boobies” comment section fill in the dollar and cents amount of what you are willing to pay for the card/project. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. Remember your bid includes shipping as well as the card/or project. 100% of the money from your bid will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Next to your $ bid please type in your email address. During a silent auction bidders sign their name next to their bid. Typing your email address is the electronic equivalent of signing your bid. Also it will help the blogger contact you if you are the highest bidder.
Watch and wait.
Once you have entered your bid/comment sit back and wait. If someone out bids you then you may bid again. Bidding will continue until 8:00 p.m. Mountain time 7 days after the first post.
* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project during the week of bidding in June. When the blogger re-posts their project then the bidding will continue on the NEWEST post and that comment section.
“What do I do once I place a bid”
Watch and Wait
The “Winner of the Auction” will be the highest bid (that includes an email address) in the comment section of the MOST RECENT Blogs 4 Boobies post at the end of the silent auction. Please note that ALL cards/projects WILL BE REPOSTED seven days after their initial post. The auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time seven days after the first post .
Things to keep in mind:
Near the end of the bidding you may not see bids as they come in. Most blogs have a comment feature where the blogger must approve comments before they are published. So bid high. You might have the highest bid.
