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 Debbie’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. 

Thank you for stopping by and your next blog to hop to is Kathi Carlson.

I used the sentiment from Dandelion Dreams, and I created the butterfly embellishments by using the butterfly from the Garden Stamp Kiss set.  I took the butterfly, stamped it on the back of some fun Jenni Bowlin paper, cut it out, and then popped it up with foam tape.  I thought they needed some bling so I added a few Prima crystals to the centers of the butterflies.  The red pattern paper is by American Crafts from the Abode collection (I think).


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!!

If there is a break somewhere along the way,  there will be a master list at:
