Hop(e) for Haiti and Blog Candy from Heather!


Welcome to the Hop(e) for Haiti blog hop by Skipping Stones Design to benefit the Red Cross relief effort in Haiti :) This hop has over 30 participants who have opted to donate the cards shown during the hop to be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the Red Cross!!! This is soooo exciting! Starting Feb 16th, Skipping Stones Design is also donating $2 from every stamp set sold to the American Red Cross! - I am totally honoured to have been asked to participate in this hop! :)


Please Help us by spreading the word!




Copy and paste this poster on your blog and by all means, send it to your friends, so they can put it on their blogs too! If you have a newsletter please send out the poster and let all your peeps know. The more people know about the hop(e), the more money we can raise!!!




So now that you all know about the hop (if you hadn't heard about it already) you should have arrived here from Angela's blog Sparkle and Bling. If you haven't then do not pass go and do not collect your $200....kidding ;) If you haven't arrived at my blog from the beginning then please start at the front of the line and follow the directions to the finish line and the link to all of the auctions :) Everyone is welcome to bid!




As a little treat for you, Heather from Skipping Stones has sent a set along to me to give out for blog candy. This set is called Frills and it's a 4 x 6" clear set. All you have to do is leave me a comment and I will draw the name of the winner on Sunday, Feb 21st.

So do you want to know where you are off to now? Well hop, skip and jump on over to the very talented Dawn Easton's blog and you will be able to follow the bread crumb trail to the finish line :)
