Blogs 4 Boobies Card Auction with Skipping Stones Designs

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Blogs 4 Boobies Blog Hop and Card Auction!
More than 60 designers have donated their talents in this fundraiser to stamp out cancer!  This is day 6 of a 7 day event and all the cards you see along the way are up for auction with the proceeds going to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  (more info at the bottom of the post!)

This auction is for 4 cards with coordinating envelopes.  I created the watercolor backgrounds using Ken Oliver's Color Bursts in Violet and Turquoise.  The images came from 3 different stamp sets and were heat embossed before I used my Dymo label maker to add a graphic sentiment.
You can enlarge any picture by clicking on the image.

I used the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to create the envelopes - super easy!!  Here are the other 3 cards in the set:

And here are close ups - love my Dymo label maker!

Now what?

You can help by shopping at Skipping Stones Designs.
The owner will be donating $2 for every stamp set sold June 1 - June 14. Here are the stamp sets I used to create my cards:

You can help by bidding on the cards!
  1.  To bid on the card set I posted today leave a comment below with your bid amount and your email address. Starting bid is $5. Only comments on this post will be eligible for this card auction. Comments without an email address are invalid - sorry!
