Hey all! I sat down to sip on some coffee and eat some toast this morning to read up on blogs before I ventured into my craft room to clean and what not and found JUGS is having a very special challenge!
As you may have read on a previous post...a fellow blogger and stamper on SCS's 3 year old son Henry passed away after an illness that until now hasn't been found out what was the main cause of his death. It started out as a tummy ache and then a fever and then the unexpected happened. Very sad tragedy indeed. Even sadder that it's a little angel...they haven't even come close to living a life. The same day I read about Henry...I hugged my kids so tight and cried.
JUGS decided to team up with Katie Cotton...owner of Paper Makeup Stamps for a challenge and that was to create a card using Henry...a digi Katie has in her store to raise money for Sarah...Henry's mom. You can read more about the challenge on the JUGS blog. My card was made with Henry's Snow Angel as the main focus and not too much added as to not take away from the most important part of the reason for the challenge. I use the awesome sketch for Mojo Monday Week 112. Henry was colored with Copics.
I'm adding a special candy with this challenge. NO...I AM IN NO PART ASSOCIATED WITH JUGS OR PAPER MAKEUP STAMPS...I'm just doing it from the goodness of my heart so you can go out and buy this digi and create a card using Henry. It is for a great cause. It can be anything but a card as well...tags, boxes, ANYTHING... What I'm offering up is a surprise FAT envelope of stuff I would use! From dies to flowers to buttons...it will be fat...trust me! So go on now to Paper Makeup Stamps and pick up Henry! You have until NEXT WEEK...the 19th to post your card on a blog or online gallery. Just make sure to leave me a comment here and leave a link for me to view it and on Friday morning...I will post the winner!
ALSO...I will be selling this card on my Etsy and I will personally pledge that when sold...the money (minus PayPal fee) will be forwarded to Katie to add to the Henry & Sarah fund. So...whadda ya say? Head on over to my Etsy to pick it up!
Thanks everyone and I truly do hope you participate in this JUGS special challenge! AND if you want some of my goodies...join me! Hey...you can use your JUGS card to enter in MY challenge! See...I'm making it easy!
