Crafty Friends Who Care Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the Crafty Friends Who Care blog hop. We are so glad you could join us for Day 2 of this very special hop. We have a whole new line-up of fabulous projects for you. But the most important thing about this is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.

Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at

Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.

And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop. Sweet Stamping Treats Digital Stamps, Trendy Twine, MB Treasurista, Paper Piecings by Nikki, Inspired Stamps, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps have all donated prizes to this hop. In order to be eligible for one of  these prizes you must comment on every blog in this hop! There are other requirements for the sponsors so please see Liz's blog post for more details.

If you are coming from  Liz's blog (, you are in the right place!

My project today is another card. I think this one appeals to the fashoinista in me.

These shoes came from the Disney Princess Cartridge Happily Ever after. The wording I did on my computer and printed it on white cardstock. The animal print pink paper is from Karen Foster, and the animal Print Teal paper is from The Paper Studio. The pink glitter paper is from Best Creations. 

This is the inside sentiment. I think it works perfectly.

And don't forget about my blog candy, the January/February Issue of both Paper Crafts Magazine and Creating Keepsakes.

To be eligible you must be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me where you shared this blog hop with your friends. It can be on Facebook, any crafting site you belong to, your blog, twitter, email, anything! Just as long as you share it.

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to go to and find out how to become a marrow donor. Your next stop is Ashley
