BLOGS FOR BOOBIES BOUNCE/FUNDRAISER
Welcome to the 1st annual "Blogs 4 boobies" blog bounce (hop)! I am so excited and honored to be part of this very special hop which is a fund raiser for breast cancer. I expect each of us have been affected by this terrible cancer in one form or another..some personally, some from experience with family or friends going through it. I am very happy to say my favorite aunt is a survivor of a very aggressive form of breast cancer...I am going to visit her this weekend, and so glad I can!! This is a very worthy cause that is near and dear to my heart! This is day number two of the blog. For more cards/projects and fun go to Skipping Stones Design Home Page, for the links from yesterday...(day one), to see more awesome artists that have joined in this blog bounce/fund raiser by uploading cards and projects they created.
I am so glad that you joined us today. This is a very special hop because every card/project that is show here in the "blogs 4 boobies" blog bounce is up for auction! We are teaming up with Skipping Stones Design to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Skipping Stones Design is an awesome art stamp company that I have the honor of designing for the next six months....check out the link!!
There are 3 ways that you can help us in this special fundraiser!
1. Go shopping! For every stamp set that you purchase during Sept 15th through the 23rd SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about ! This blog hop is combined with the release of two new stamp sets by SSD: These are both awesome sets with tons of possibilities, but check out the Skipping Stones Store to see other fun and artisitc choices as well.
BRAS # 2 AND..... WISEMEN
2. Bid! If you see a card or a project that you like, bid on it in the comment section of the blog post. See "how to place a bid" below, for more detailed instructions. If you are the highest bidder September 23rd 8:00 p.m. mountain time then you WIN the card/project that you bid on.
3. Tell your friends about the hop and stamp purchasing specials. Introduce them to SSD stamps and show them that one can find art stamps to make funny and amusing projects as well as serious!
"How to bid":
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
Step # 2
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.
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 September 23rd.
* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the 23rd of September. If/when the blogger re-post 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 as of 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time on September 23rd
Things to keep in mind:
Near the end of the bidding you may not see bids as they come in. Most blog have a comment feature where the blogger must approve comments before they are published. So bid high. You might have the highest bid that is published, but someone might have outbid you in an unpublished comment/bid.
This is the sketch # 42 for this week, posted by our guest designer this month, Ashley Cannon Newell.
This is the card up for auction that I created using Bras # 2, and Sketch 42. I decided on the camo background paper to symbolize prevention, which is always the best defense against any disease. The envelope has a matching camo border. To bid, click on the comment section at the end of this post, and follow the instructions above for bidding...don't forget your e-mail address. We hope for a minimum bid of $5.00....I will match any dollar amount bid on my card, for this cause!! To continue on the hop/bounce, follow the links below. You should have arrived here from Amy Tsuruta's blog. Just in case you just happened upon my blog today, I have all of the blog participants listed....check them all out, and put out some bids, and go shopping for some awesome stamps at The Skipping Stones Store! Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have any questions I have not answered please ask them in my comments!
