Hello World Blog Hop!


Good morning friends!
I am so excited to be a part of the, "Hello World Blog Hop!" Many of you may know Jennifer Ingle from, Just Jingle Blog! Her husband Sean is a teacher in a school where most kids are on a free and reduced lunch program, they don’t have computers at home or at school and the school doesn’t have the funds for a curriculum.  In the spirit of giving his students the best education he can provide, Sean is working to raise funds to purchase computers for his classroom.  You can read more here:  https://www.donorschoose.org/project/chromebooks-for-urban-education/2208813/
Since I am also a school teacher, this tugged at my heartstrings!  So Catherine Pooler got a bunch of us gals together to create projects using BRAND NEW stamps created just for this cause! It is called,"Hello World!" 

These gorgeous butterflies were stamped several times using my Misti.  They were colored with my Zig Water color markers.  I added a bit more depth with colored pencils, and even cut two of the butterflies out and popped them up using foam adhesive.  I masked all of the butterflies and stamped the background. Each circle was colored in with red and given a bit of glossy accents.  I added a few sequins and some twine to finish it off.  
All profits from the sale of this stamp set and the coordinating dies from Saturday October 1 - Friday, October 7 will purchase computers and other school supplies for Sean’s classroom in Boston.
I can’t wait to see how this week unfolds and how many computers we can provide for these kids!!!

We are beside ourselves excited to raise money to purchase computers for these kids...how can you become a contributing member of society these days if you don’t know how to use a computer?

All designers were sent a goodie pack of stamps on Friday.  On October 1, we will be releasing the following products into the store:

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Be sure to stop by all of these talented ladies' blogs for more inspiration!!
Let's Get these kiddos some computers shall we?
