Help For Japan blog hop by Whimsy Stamps

Hello and welcome to a very special blog hop today!  The illustrators of Whimsy Stamps have come together to draw a special set of digi images for the purpose of raising money for the relief effort in Japan.  All proceeds from the sale of these images will be donated to that cause.   Kenny K, Raindrop Echo Designs, Meljens Designs, and Crissy Armstrong all contributed art work. 

For the whole month of April, you can purchase the images as a set or individually (your choice)  by visiting this page on the Whimsy store site.  Please consider helping this special cause by purchasing one or all of the digital images we are offering.  

If you have landed here from Ellie's blog, you are right on track.  If you have come here randomly and would like to start hopping from the beginning, please go to Crissy's blog.   She has the blog rotation order posted if you need to refer to it. 

The amazing ladies of two design teams have come together to host this blog hop for you!  Crissy's Crew from Sundays With Crissy and Denise's DT from Whimsy Stamps have joined forces to design some amazing jaw dropping creations for you.  You have seven days to hop through all the blogs and enjoy all the lovely creations from these talented people. 

The hop runs from now through til Sunday April 10 at noon.  There will be several opportunities to win blog candy!  Four random commenters will get a chance to receive one of the three individual images or Ann's sentiment set.  So be sure to leave comments all along the way for your chance at a free digi!  

Also, if you post the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's sidebar, you can enter into the draw for the grand prize! 
 The grand prize will consist of the entire digital set made just for this cause as well as a gift certificate donated by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs worth 10$ to use at the Whimsy Stamps store! To enter, you must help us advertise for this cause by posting the "Help Japan" button on your blog's side bar (just grab it from my side bar or from the top of this post) and then get your name on the Inlinkz option on Crissy's post so we can be sure to find the winner.  

Now on to my project: 
I have used two different  images that were created for this great cause, Crissy's Designs  Heartfelt Angel and a sentiment from Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) in my projects today.

This blog is related shopping. New ideas, quality designs, sensible colors, and no-nonsense prices. I want to like the bag, but something is keeping me from liking it. Unfortunate because I own so many of his bags. This is really nice blog…


Deb said...

wow, they are both so beautiful, such pretty colours!
Happy Crafting, Debxx

Hi Jackie,
Such wonderful cards! I am also a huge fan of Ann's Sentiment images and think they make such sweet cards!

My sincere thanks to you for all you've done to support me while I was a member of the StampFairy DT. I had planned to write a private and more personal post for all the team members on our blog this morning, but then quickly realized I no longer have access!

I do HOPE there are NOT any hard feelings and I'm so sorry that I was not able to feel that I could finish out the month. It's very hard for me to give into Fibro and I'm upset that it's been dragging me down so much lately.

I wish you continued success with ALL your times and will miss all the girls very much. It's been a joy and and HOPE someday I'll be able to take on a design team position again....! I will never give up on hoping for a cure for Fibro and pray it will come soon!

Thanks for everything!!
