Operation Smile Stamp Set

You can change the life of a child with just one stamp set.   

When you purchase the C-size You're the Bomb stamp set at full retail price, $13.95, anytime between now through March 2015, Close To My Heart will donate $3 of the proceeds to Operation Smile.  
Operation Smile was founded in 1982 and has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.  It only takes an hour for volunteer medical teams to perform these life altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime.

Editor's Note

Just to sum up the savings over the next couple of months:

December -
  • Save between $3.95 and $7.95 when you reach $50 in purchases and you can order C or D size stamp sets - no limit! Here is the link for eligible stamp sets. 
  • Save another $7.95 with the Stamp of the Month when you reach $50
December and January

  • Save $7 when you get both the Annual Inspiration and Season Expression book for free!
  • Additional savings on all of that because you do not pay tax on your saved amount!

All those savings come just in the nick of time for the holidays. If you know someone who just does not know what to get you - give them my website and your wishlist! Done!

Have a Merry Christmas :)

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
