Hop(e) for Haiti blog hop {it's here!}

Hello!  I'm soooo glad you stopped by today!

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 the multi-talented Erin'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.

For my contribution, I used the beautiful Healing Wings.  This set is so pretty with three different butterflies and several versatile sentiments --I love it! 



Thank you for stopping by and your next blog to hop is that of the sweet and talented Sarah.


But WAIT!!  Before you go, 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 on whose blog it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!!  ;D

And if there's a break somewhere along the way, a master list will be at the Skipping Stones Design and at Sparkle and Bling.


Thanks again for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
