Hi there everyone!!! I'm back.... back for Boobies that is!!! When I left Skipping Stones Design at the end of my term, I let Heather know that I definitely wanted to come back for this amazing "Blogs for Boobies Bounce" which is intended to raise funds for the Susan G Komen Foundation with the thought that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We've decided to start ahead of time so that the money can be donated in October. If you just happened upon my blog by chance today, make sure you go back to the beginning at Heather's Blog. You should have arrived from the absolutely amazingly talented Ashley Cannon Newell (who is also this month's sketch artist at Skipping Stones Design).
For my card today, I've used "Bras Vol. 1" which is such a fun set. Heather has just released Bras Vol. 2 in support of this blog bounce. My image has been watercolored with my Tombow Markers. As you can see, I really wanted to play with the Pink theme knowing that it is the color for Breast Cancer Awareness. I'm lucky that I have been fortunate enough to not have any family members with Breast Cancer but I know how important research for it is. In some way, each one of us knows someone who has been diagnosed with Cancer at some point and I'm sure we've all lost a loved one to the disease. Just this year, my Father-in-law died of Pancreatic Cancer which has affected my husband in ways I never imagined.
There are three ways you can help support this amazing cause along with the rest of the amazing ladies who are participating in the Bounce both today and tomorrow. Each card that is posted either today or tomorrow will be up for auction on each individual's blog. It's an allstar line up of ladies (I'm sure I'll be bidding on a few cards myself).
1 - Go shopping! For every stamp set that you purchase during Sept 15th through the 23rd SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about.
2-Bid! If you see a card or a project that you like bid on it in the comment section of the blog post. WE DO ASK THAT THE MINIMUM BID ON A CARD IS $5 AS THIS MONEY WILL BE GOING TO CHARITY. 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.
3 - Tell your friends about the "Blogs for Boobies Bounce"!!!!
"How to place a bid"
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.
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 23rd of September. If/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 as of 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 NEXT STOP ON THIS BOUNCE IS ANN KRANITZ.
Thank you so much for bouncing by my blog today!!!! We hope you can help us raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer.
