Skipping Stones Hop(e) for Haiti


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 Sharon Perry’s blog

As a company and Design Team, 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 fabulous 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.  100% of the proceeds from the E-bay auction AND $2.00 from every stamp set purchased from Skipping Stones Design, February 16 – 22, will be donated to the Red Cross.   

We know that we can ALL make a difference. 

 I will definitely be keeping my chatter to a minimum today so you can hop to the next blog.   Since I feel so strongly about this cause and our obligation as human beings to do what we can to help, in addition to my card I’ve also put together a little prize which will also be auctioned off on E-bay.    I’ve included LOTS of photos to help convince you to make a bid!    🙂      [To save time, I’ve included the specific details on my card and extra project in the post after this.]

My card, using Skipping Stones’ Margarita Birthday set  . . .

The extra little project  ~  A gift pail filled with margarita essentials  . . .



The tag on the gift pail, also from the Margarita Birthday set  . . .



Contents of the gift pail (all included in the E-bay auction!)   Four mini Jose Cuervo bottles of Especial Tequila, 2 limes, 2 shot glasses, a salt shaker, salsa & chips   . . .



And one final photo of the complete set . . .



Soooo, how about a PRIZE for YOU?   In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop!   There will also be a few pre-release sets up for grabs hidden along the blog hop.  The fun part is … we’re not telling you who it is!    So as you hop, be sure to leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!!

 Thank you all for stopping by today for this GREAT cause!  Your next stop is Jen del Muro
