I have decided to sweeten the pot...as of 3:15 pm Central, the winning bid is $6.50, which is awesome!! BUT the winner will receive my card, matching envelope, AND...
Yep, that's right! I'll send a brand new Always Here set, along with my card, to the highest bidder. Remember, it's for boobies! *wink* What are you waiting for?
Hey y'all! Yes, I'm still here! Football is a way of life around here...and it's putting a cramp in my crafting mojo. Real quick, I wanted to let you know about something fun going on. As you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and my mom is a breast cancer survivor (4 years cancer free!!) One of my favorite new companies, Skipping Stones Design is hosting a Blogs 4 Boobies bounce/hop which will help raise money for breast cancer awareness. They will be featuring a new release, offering discounts on other sets, and making a donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. This event starts today and goes through Friday!
I am participating by putting my project up for auction here on my blog, along with all the other participating designers. 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. 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 for more detailed instructions. If you are the highest bidder September 23rd 8:00 p.m. mountain time then you WIN the card/project that you bid on.
The highest bidder will receive the card, and the winning bid will go towards breast cancer research. Here's a look at what I created:
I'll come back & add more details later, but until then here's my focal image up close & personal:

Have fun bouncing from blog to blog. Enjoy all the designs, and make a bid or two! This is a rare opportunity to take home a card/project from your favorite designer, and fight the war against breast cancer!!!
*”How to place a bid on my card/project”
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.
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 shippingas well as the card/or project. 100% of the money your bid will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation
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.
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 September 23rd
* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the 23rdof September. 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 September. The silent auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time on September 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 ammount. Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so the designer can get your card/project in the mail to you.
Have a fabulous day!
