Blogs 4 Boobies, Day Three!

Welcome to the second annual
Skipping Stones Design 
Blogs 4 Boobies fundraiser!
This is day 3 of a 3 day blog bounce (hop) where EVERY CARD OR PROJECT is up for auction!


Hello and welcome to the third and final day of the fabulous Blogs 4 Boobies event! Today I'm auctioning off this fantastic set of 5 notecards that are super simple and elegant.  I used the newly released Everyday Blessings set for the wonderful sentiment (isn't it versatile???) and paired it with that gorgeous image from Victorian Summer.  Now is the perfect time to pick up these sets, because through August 23rd Skipping Stones Design will donate $2 for every single stamp set sold to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.


This set of 5 notecards comes with 5 matching envelopes, stamped with a beautiful butterfly from the Victorian Summer set.  It's perfect to give as a gift, or keep for yourself (I'm always needing thank you notes). I am so in love with these CAS notecards, I made a bunch for myself, too!

Each day, different participants are auctioning off cards or projects. Here is today's list of amazing bouncers:

Be sure to read through the whole post - yesterday's list of participants is listed towards the bottom, and you won't want to miss the chance to bid on any of those projects either! Have fun bouncing along, and thank you for helping stamp out cancer!

Here are some instructions on how to place a bid from the hop's sponsor, Skipping Stones Design:

How to place a bid on my card/project:
Step #1
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.


Step #2
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.  We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more.  Remember your bid includes shipping as well as the card/or project. 100% of your bid will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.


Step #3
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 me contact you if you are the highest bidder.Watch and wait!  Once you have entered your bid/comment sit back and wait. If someone outbids you then you may bid again.  Bidding will continue until August 23rd at 8:00 PM MST. The winner of the auction will be the highest bid (that includes an email address) in the comments section. * Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the August 23rd.  When the bloggers re-post their projects  then the bidding will continue on the NEWEST post and that comment section OR they will include instructions on where to post your bid (some bloggers may hop on multiple days).


Don't forget:
Near the end of the bidding you may not see bids as they come in.  Most blogs 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 blogger/designer will declare who has won the silent auction.  Skipping Stones Design will send you an invoice for your donation/bid ammount.  Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so the designer can get your card/project in the mail to you.

Remember, 100% of your bid will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.


Here's a few more words from Skipping Stones Design, the sponsor of this great hop, on how this fun blog bounce works:
