Blogs 4 Boobies, Day Two!

Welcome to the second annual
Skipping Stones Design 
Blogs 4 Boobies fundraiser!
This is day 2 of a 3 day blog bounce (hop) where EVERY CARD OR PROJECT is up for auction!

Welcome to day two of the three day Blogs4Boobies event!! Today I'm auctioning off a set of 4 notecards that are super clean and simple. I used the new Everyday Blessings set (released today!) to make these cards. All of my supplies are listed below.

With this set of 4 cards will come 4 envelopes, stamped to match the cards. These are perfect to have on hand for the always needed thank you notes!

Each day, different participants are hopping. Here is today's list of amazing bouncers:

Kryssi Ng (you came from here)
Taylor Usry (you are here now!)
Sankari Wegman (go here next!)

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:

Last year Skipping Stones Design raised and donated $1108.99 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It is our goal to raise $1500 this year and WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! There are 3 ways you can join in on the fun(draising):

You can help by going shopping!
For every stamp set that you purchase from August 15th through the 23rd SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation.  Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about!  Click here to laugh at some of our funniest stamps, click here to be inspired or click here to see everything we've got!You can help by bidding on projects (this will be explained in detail)!

You can help by bidding!
Another way you can help us raise money for the Komen Foundation is to bid on a project or card along the blog bounce (hop).  EVERY single card/project along the blogs for boobies bounce is up for auction. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more.  Your bid not only includes the card or project but shipping to your home as well.

You can help by telling your friends!
