Blogs 4 Boobies!


Welcome to the second annual Blogs 4 Boobies fundraiser! 

This is day three of a three day blog bounce (hop) where EVERY CARD OR PROJECT is up for auction!

Last year with your help 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 three ways you can join in on the fun(draising)! (See below!)

You should have arrived from Stephanie's blog and your next stop will be to Wendy P's blog along the blog bounce!

For my contribution this year I whipped up a set of cards for you! This card set uses Everyday Blessings, Sentiment Frames and Garden Stamp Kiss!


Now, not only are you bidding on this set of cards, but you’ll also be rewarded for your winning bid! The photo below shows the prizes I’m also donating to up the ante!

So, what do you do to bid (and win!) on this card set and the prize? Take a look below for all the info! Also, pass the word along and check out the other designers from all three days.

1. You can help by going shopping!

For every stamp set that you purchase during August 15th through the 23rd SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation.  Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about ! 

2. You can help by *Biding!

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).  YES! 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.  * See how to place a bid for more detailed instructions.

If you are the highest bidder August 23rd 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!!!

If you have a blog feel free to  copy and paste part or all of our Blogs 4 Boobies posts.  

*"How to place a bid on a 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 the money 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/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 August 23rd

* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the 23rdof August.  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 at the end of the silent auction.  Please note that ALL cards/projects WILL BE REPOSTED on the 23rd of August.  The silent auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time on August 23rd . 

Things to keep in mind:

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 amount.  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.
