Betty’s DT and the Crafty Sprouts DT along with a few friends have come together today for the From the Xander Zone Blog Hop and Auction! If you are stumbling into this hop please head to Crafty Sprouts to catch the beginning of the hop!
If you hopped here from Pam then you are right on track!
As you hop along today you will see cards created with Xander, the first in a new series to be released called “From the Xander Zone”. He is available with a donation to Betty’s family. Christian will be undergoing Surgery next week to remove his tonsils and then the thrice weekly Therapy will begin on the tumor. His therapy could last for many months.
There is also a contest running through October 16th and Christian will pick a random winner who will receive the whole collection! The details on the contest are at the SBS blog.
As you hop today you will also see many cards and projects up for Auction. In order to make a bid on an item leave a comment on that person’s blog with your offer AND your name and email address. Please remember that it might not be you who gets the winning bid, so check back if you really want it!
At the end of the Hop (Tuesday night October 11th at 9pm EST the auction will come to a close. Winners will be sent a paypal invoice and the Winners will be announced on the Simply Betty Stamps blog. Please note that we are asking for timely payment, with 48 hours of the announcement on Tuesday morning or the runner up will be chosen. This is for the simple fact that Betty’s family needs this money as quickly as possible for all of these unexpected and out-of-pocket needs.
I've made a card featuring two of the Xander Zone characters, Xander and Cece. Cece is originally holding a lollipop but I covered that with a sign saying "Christian roolz" The papers are from the Secret Forest set at Crafty Chaos Designs.And up for auction today to help raise money for Betty and her family, I'm auctioning off my ENTIRE SHOP CONTENTS!!!!!!! This includes every single item that's in the shop today (6th October) but not anything that isn't actually released yet, sorry. The auction for this is open to international bidders, as no physical items will need to be shipped. You'll get 69 PAPER SETS, plus a few digital stamps and several packs of sentiments to download. Worth a buck or two? I sure hope so! All the money will go straight to Betty and I'll send you a link to download your products as soon as I've heard that you've paid. Please make any bids in USD, to avoid me having to try and convert different currencies to work out which is the highest bid. If two people make the same highest bid, the winner will be the one who posted first. If you'd like to make a bid for this, please leave a comment with your name, email and bid amount. The auction will end Tuesday October 11th at 9pm EST, I'll get in touch with the winning bidder, then Betty will send you a Paypal invoice and as soon as I know that's been paid, I'll make your downloads available. There is NO minimum bid, so, whatever the amount, the highest bid will win the entire shop contents. You can have a look at what's in store, to see what you're bidding for, HERE, or by clicking the badge in my sidebar.
