Operation Smile - Happy Everything Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to our special Blog Hop featuring the exclusive stamp set that benefits Operation Smile - Happy Everything.   Close To My Heart has partnered with Operation Smile an organization that provides free, life-changing surgery that repairs smiles and reshapes lives, one child at a time. Since 2008, Close To My Heart has provided support to change the lives of over 1,500 children and their families.  Although Close To My Heart already donates a portion of EACH My Acrylix stamp set that is sold, they will donate $3 for EACH Happy Everything that is sold!

Happy Everything - D1653
Today, the SOTM Blog Hoppers are sharing their artwork created with this special stamp set.  If you came here from Brenda Lapp's blog, you are on the right track!  Just look for the link at the bottom of my post that will take you to the next blog!  The hop is one big circle so when you come back to me, you will know you have visited all of the blogs!   If you get lost along the way you can check the list HERE.

The Honeycomb Embossing Folder (Z1995) is the perfect compliment for this stamp set.  I stamped the bee directly on the card base and then again on a piece of scrap cardstock.  After coloring the bee's body, I cut it out and adhered it on top of the stamped bee.  I used the black twine from the Neutral Metallic Assortment (Z1921) and a few Black epoxy bubbles (Z1935) to finish off the card.

How can you help support Operation Smile through Close To My Heart?  There are three ways:
1.  Purchase the Happy Everything stamp.  Close To My Heart will donate $3 for each Happy Everything stamp set sold!  This stamp is only available to purchase through August 31!
2.  When you purchase ANY My Acrylix stamp set, a portion of each stamp is donated to Operation Smile.
3.  Round Up!  Any time you make a purchase with Close To My Heart you can 'round up' your total to the nearest dollar!  This 'round up' amount will be donated to Operation Smile.

You are now ready to BUZZ over to Judy Faye Garner's blog to see what she has created!
