Lawnscaping Challenge #131

Hello Crafty Friends,

I'm submitting this card, which I made for my Mom, who LOVES elephants for Mother's Day to the Lawnscaping Challenge: Off Kilter, which is sponsored by ELLEN HUTSON.

I started the card by embossing my background wood grain pattern paper w/the Cuttlebug A2 Hugs and Kisses Embossing Folder.  Next I started building my shaker element, using the Taylored Expressions Color Block Cutting Plate.  I filled 3 of the compartments with sequin.   Inside the top right compartment I placed a Copic colored Mom and baby Elephant from the Clearly Besotted Love You Tons stamp set.  On the outside of the bottom right compartment I placed a Copic colored Elephant from  the Avery Elle Ellie stamp set.   The balloon on the top left compartment is also from the Avery Elle Ellie stamp set.   My last element on the card was a Happy Happy Happy die cut from Frantic Stamper

I placed the shaker element on an angle for a little extra interest.  My Mom LOVED her card and I hope you do also.  

Thanks for stopping bye.

Blogs For Boobies

Welcome to the 3rd Annual "Blogs 4 Boobies" hop!

Thank you for joining us fight cancer... this is day 6 of a 7 day event!  All of the money raised through the silent auction, on all the participating blogs, will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation. 

There are 3 ways that you can help...

  1. You can help by Shopping!   Skipping Stones Design is celebrating "blogs 4 boobies" with the release of six new stamp sets AND for every stamp set that you purchase during June 1st-14th SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about!  
  2. You can help by *Biding!   Bid on a cards/projects along the blog hop. YES! EVERY single card/project along the blogs 4 boobies hop is up for auction. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. Your *bid not only includes the card/project but shipping to your home as well. (Please Note IF you want to bid, and live outside the U.S. we would request that you pay the difference of shipping charges between where you live and what it would cost to ship within the US.) See how to place a bid (below) for more detailed instructions.   If you are the highest bidder 7 days after the first post date 8:00 p.m. mountain time, 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!!!

I'm honored and very excited to participate in this cause.  Skipping Stones Designs provided the stamps for this event and here's what I made with them:

I used the Birthday Donuts Stamp set for my first three birthday cards:   

Card 1: Donut Shaker
Card 1 inside sentiment:  "happy birhtday" inside the donut with candle 
Card 2: Chocolate Donuts
Card 2 inside sentiment:  stamped donut at bottom right 
Card 3: Stacked Donuts
Card 3 inside is blank, but I can stamp a sentiment of your choice   

 I used the Margarita Birthday stamp set for my fourth and final card:

Card 4: Tequila

Card 4 inside sentiment

How to place a bid for any of my cards...

Step #1
Find the comment section of this blog.

Step #2
Once in the comment section fill in the dollar and cents amount of what you are willing to pay for the card.  Since I have multiple cards available, please indicate Card 1, Card 2, etc.  We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. Remember your bid includes shipping as well as the card and 100% of the money you 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 in the comment section, sit back and wait. If someone out bids you then you may bid again. Bidding will continue until 8:00 p.m. Mountain time 7 days after the first post.

"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 this post at the end of the silent auction.

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(s) in the mail to you.

Here is the amazing lineup of designers for day 6:
