time to Blog 4 Boobies! :D

I'm sorry that I've not updated in a long while - I have been very busy with my little family and getting ready for my sister-in-law's shower that is on SATURDAY, yay!  I finished the cupcake toppers and doughnut flags last night (OMG, those flags.  GRRR.) and I just need to finish the banner and I'm pretty much DONE.  It's a little anticlimactic, really; I was expecting to be working on stuff all the way up to Friday but apparently I'm more efficient than I thought.  I'm certainly a whiz at cutting out flowers now, oof.  ;)

Anyway, in lieu of a crafty post of my own I'm going to link you up to a blog hop for an excellent cause: Skipping Stones Design Blog 4 Boobies blog hop and fundraiser.  They have some great stamps on their site, and every card or project that's linked is up for auction!  Here are the specifics from their blog (copied and pasted with their permission):

IT’S  TIME TO STAMP OUT CANCER!!!!

Welcome to the second annual Blog 4 Boobies fundraiser!  

This is day 3 of a 3 day blog bounce(hop) where EVERY CARD OR PROJECT is up for auction!

Last year with your help Skipping Stones Design raised and donated $1108.99 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It is our goal to raise $1500 this year and WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!  There are 3 ways you can join in on the fun(draising)

1. You can help by Going shopping! 
For every stamp set that you purchase during August 15th through the 23rd SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation.  Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about !   
Click  Here to laugh at  some of our funniest stamps 
 
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 for 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.   * See how to place a bid for more detailed instructions. 
If you are the highest bidder August 23rd 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!!!
If you have a blog feel free to  copy and paste part or all of our Blogs 4 Boobies posts.   
 
 
*”How to place a bid on a card/project”
Step #1
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. 
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.  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 your bid will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation
Step #3
  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.
Step #4
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 August 23rd
 
* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the 23rdof August.  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 at the end of the silent auction.  Please note that ALL cards/projects WILL BE REPOSTED on the 23rd of August.  The silent auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time on August 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.
The blogger/designer will declare who has won the silent auction.  Skipping Stones Design will send you an invoice for your donation/bid amount.  Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so the designer can get your card/project in the mail to you.
Remember 100% of your bid will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Together we can make a difference!!!

I have to tell you - there's a stamp that made me bust out laughing when I first saw it and for that reason alone I really want it.  One of these:

 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ That stamp would have so applied to me several years ago when I had a larger chest than I do now.  My skater friends know exactly what I mean, hee!  :)

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
