Blog For Boobies

 Welcome to the second annual Blog 4 Boobies Fundraiser!

This is day three of a three day blog bounce where every card or project is up for auction~
all proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation!

Together we can make a difference!!!

Today's participants include:
Rae Ann Barthel
Pam Hornschu 
Jennifer Ingle
Ria Johnson
Mel McCarthy
Stephanie Mino
Kandi Phillips
Wendy Price
Julia Stainton
Taylor Usry

Skipping Stones Design has a listing of the participants for Day One and Day Two, you don't want to miss out on their fabulous projects that are up for auction too!

The above card (with envelope) that is up for auction, was inspired by the current CardPatterns Sketch #128. I've also got a set of 4 cards, with silver envelopes that will be shipped to the highest bidder right along with it!

Finally, (and I'm super excited about this) to sweeten the pot and encourage my blogging friends to participate in bidding for this amazing cause, I'm offering up the following that will also be included in my featured card and card set to the highest bidder!

Here's how to bid on my projects (recommended starting bid is $5.00 or more-includes shipping of the product to your house! and remember 100% of your bid is sent to the Susan G. Komen Foundation)
individual purse card, purse card set of 4 and coupon

Step #1:
Find the comment section of this post and let me know dollar and cents amount of what you are willing to pay for the above featured items.
Step #2:
Next to your bid, please type in your e-mail address. Typing your e-mail address is the electronic equivalent of signing your bid. Also it will help me contact you if you are the highest bidder!
Step #3
Once you have entered your bid/comment, sit back and wait. If someone outbids you then you may bid again! Bidding will continue until 8:00 p.m. (MDT) on August 23. **Please note that I will repost my Blogs 4 Boobies items on August 23 as a reminder that the auction will be ending that evening. When I re-post, bidding will continue on the NEWEST post and that comment section. The winner of the auction will be the highest bid (that includes an e-mail address) in the comment section of the MOST RECENT post. Skipping Stones Design will send you an invoice for your donation/bid amount upon completion of the Silent Auction.  Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so I can get your card/project in the mail to you. Remember, 100% of your bid will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation!

Last year, with your help, Skipping Stones Design raised $1108.99 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It is our goal this year to raise $1500! Please note that in addition to the auction, $2 from every Skipping Stones Design stamp set purchased through August 23rd will go towards the total! Now is your time to stock up on these fabulous stamps! Click  Here to laugh at  some of SSD's funniest stamps, click here to be inspired or click here to see everything they've got!
