The {stasche}

Did those cute little eyes peeking out from underneath a mustache make you smile?
You did smile a little, right?


Welcome to The Bald Dragonfly, your next stop on Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop.
You should have arrived from Jinny's blog-she is showcasing a fabulous project!
(No worries, there is a complete list at The Sweet Stamp Shop Blog if you stumbled here or lost your way!)

So, why is this hop happening?
1. For you to see fabulous inspiration from paper crafter's all over the world coming together to support a friend.
2. Julie Ranae's got to get a new smile. You know Julie Ranae... She's hardworking. She's kind. She's loyal. She's a super design team coordinator. Like one of the best. Serious. Due to some circumstances beyond her control as a child and a recent injury to her teeth, she's got to get an entirely new smile. A nice new Julie Ranae smile. And it's a lot of money. It is the goal of all of these generous friends and sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for Julie so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon. More details are on The Sweet Stamp Shop's blog.

There are $2500 in prizes donated by fabulous and generous companies and you could be a winner for donating to Julie's cause (button on my sidebar through the weekend!) and/or commenting along the way! Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool.


The CAS-ual Friday girls are all hopping today, and the challenge this week is influenced by Operation Julie's Smile. Create a clean and simple creation inspired by the quote "Everyday you spend without a smile is a lost day." If you create a card and link it up to the challenge, you have a chance to win a prize from our fabulous sponsor, The Craft's Meow!


The unbelievably cute mustache and sentiment on my card is from the stamp set Fun{tache}tic by The Craft's Meow. Check out all the challenge details and rules, read about our sponsor and find more about the prize over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog!

Your next stop on the hop is Virginia! Make sure you have your smile ready, because Virginia's project for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is going to make you grin!
