Blogs 4 Boobies Blog Hop & Breast Cancer Auction Fundraiser


Welcome to the 3rd Annual "Blogs 4 boobies" blog hop!  This is day 4 of a 7 day event! 

We are so glad that you joined us today. This is a one-of-a-kind-blog hop! Every project that is being shared in this 7-day hop is up for auction!  All of the money raised through the silent auction on our blogs, will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation. Skipping Stones Design is also donating $2 to the cause for EVERY stamp set sold on their site June 1st-14th. They are also celebrating the release of 6 NEW Stamp sets!

Today I created a fun 6-piece card set using their Birthday Purses stamp set to auction off.

There are 3 ways that you can help their fundraising efforts:

1. You can help by shopping!  For every stamp set that you purchase during June 1st through the 14th SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about! Skipping Stones Design is celebrating "blogs 4 boobies" with the release of two new stamp sets!!! Click here to check out SSD stamps.  There is also a special shopping code at the bottom of this post.  ;)

2. 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 hop.  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. Please Note IF you want to bid, and live outside the U.S. we request that you pay the difference of shipping charges between where you live and what it would cost to ship within the US. See below for instructions on how to place a bid.  If you are the highest bidder 7 days after the first post date 8:00 p.m. mountain time then you WIN the card/project that you bid on.

3. You can help by telling your friends!  Help us spread the word about "blogs 4 boobies".  The more people that know, the more money we can raise!

How to place a bid on my card set:

Step #1: Find the comment section of the blog post 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. For US buyers, 100% of the money from 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 the blogger contact you if you are the highest bidder.

Step #4: Watch and wait. Once you have entered your bid by commenting, sit back and wait. If someone outbids you, then you may bid again. Bidding will continue until 8:00 p.m. Mountain time, 7 days after the initial post goes up.

Step #5: The blogger/designer will declare who has won the silent auction. Skipping Stones Design will send you an invoice for your donation/bid amount. Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so the designer can get your card/project in the mail to you.
