Hello everyone and Happy Monday. I hope for those of you celebrating Mother's Day that you had the best day ever and for everyone else, hope you had a great weekend!
I have been looking forward to this post and today ALL WEEKEND.
As many of you know, I have been really affected by a lot that I've seen, heard, and experienced since the flooding here in Nashville last weekend. I couldn't have said it better in my own words after watching this VERY touching, yet disturbing video that I posted here on my blog last week. I've been doing my best to gather some clothing and personal items from the neighborhood here and trying to volunteer some of my time, but I still don't feel like I'm doing "enough".
For all of these reasons, I can't even tell you how absolutely TOUCHED I was when I got an email over the weekend from my friends Jen Shults and Betty Roberts asking me if I could get "a few stampers" together to help promote a new digi stamp set in which 100% of the proceeds will be DONATED to the Nashville Flood Relief Fund.
Are you KIDDING ME? Of course I was in. What I am even more honored to tell you next is that I contacted some of my friends and stamping IDOLS and you know what? They were ALL in. Not only did they say YES, this all came together extremely quickly and it is with great joy that I present you:
A HELPING HAND
Here is my card today, using this adorable little Wildflower Patch Kid and I LOVE the sentiment "The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your arm..."
" A Helping Hand" is designed by Jen Shults, owner/illustrator of Wildflower Patch Kids digital Stamps, and Betty Roberts of Simply Betty, a new stamp line debuting June 1st. I'll be back tomorrow with one of Betty's adorable images, today I'm using Jen's and when I saw this little guy with his shovel, all ready to help, it brought a tear to my eye!
The set will retail for $15 and 100% of the proceeds are being donated to the Nashville area Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. If you've been wondering what YOU can do to help, or if you just like these adorable little cutie pies, you can get them on sale TODAY at the Wildflower Patch Kids store.
Now what's even MORE amazing than that? Check out the ROCKSTAR lineup of stampers that agreed to help...can I tell you that when I say STARSTRUCK I am not even kidding y'all:
You are here, the next stops are:
Thank you SO much for tuning in today and be sure to stop by the store for your "A HELPING HAND" digi set! Thank you a hundred times!
