Creative Clear Stamps Charity Hop

 Hi everyone!  I am soooo excited to be able to participate in this special Blog Hop to help fight Childhood Cancer!  Creative Clear Stamps has done a FABULOUS job creating a stamp set with the input of the Summer Design Team 4.  I am proud to have been a part of this and offer suggestions and help to benefit such a devastating disease.  My children are my life and I cannot even begin to feel what parents of children with cancer bare on a daily basis.  My thoughts and prayers are with them all. 

An exciting new thing happened with DT4. Our team was given the opportunity to create a brand new stamp set for a charity of our choice. We have chosen Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. This charity supports the research and cure for childhood cancer. You can click on the link to find out more about their foundation.

We have named our charity stamp set "LEMONADE STAND". This set will release on Wednesday September 1st, 2010 on the Creative Clear Stamps Store website. The size of this set is 6x8 and features 20 clear stamps. The cost of this set is $20.00, of which $10.00 will be donated to the foundation throughout the month of September. The first 10 orders will receive a free secret bonus item with their purchase.

The Creative Clear Stamps Store will be closed tomorrow Tuesday August 31, to prepare for some changes to the site before the release. A new rewards program is headed our way!

Here is my sneak peek of this set!

For my first project I did a pretty easy card lay out. I LOVE LOVE all these images so much I had a very hard time trying to decide what to do first.  I couldn't resist the puppy and the girl in the typical wooden stand advertising her Lemonade.  But... I couldn't resist straying away from the yellow either.  And, I used my Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder to carry on the "lemon like skin" texture on my red card stock.  Again.. the lemon color and "dots" from my DP entered into the typical lemon scene.  *smile* I felt the "Squeeze Me" sentiment added to not only the whole lemonade but also... to the cute puppy.  You choose... want to squeeze some lemonade or the adorable pup? *smile*

For my second project I decided to make a book marker.  My husband and I truly enjoy Geocaching together and mos recently we have been enjoying a weekly "date" going out alone to seek and find a few caches.  Sometimes, things are just a bit to tough and we have to log a DNF (did not find)... this book mark reminds me of that.  I always tend to smile at my hubby when he gets frustrated that he can't find one so the sentiment seemed appropriate to me to remind him... "I'm  here... smile... hug/smooch".  *smile*

I LOVE how my new Nestabilities label reminded me of the lemons and I again used the Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" for texture.

I found the wonderful "travel sign" DP and added a few punches to the image.

On the inside, I couldn't resist the yellow dotted DP again on the inside. Under the "travel sign" DP are the magnetic strips hidden. 

Thanks for hopping by and don't forget to order your "LEMONADE STAND" during the month of September and help us find a cure for childhood cancer!

I'd like to take a minute to thank Laura for giving me the opportunity to help create this set and for being a part of the DT4.  It has been fun, challenging and rewarding.  Laura has a fabulous heart and I think the Lemonade Stand set and the charity she will give to shows this more than anything.  Laura, I will always remember how special this set is and hope it does all we hope it will to help children and their families. YOU are a great example of the kind hearts in this world and how one person can make a difference.  Blessings to you, my friend.

Enjoy the hop and please, PLEASE stop by CCS to purchase your set and help the children who have no choice but to live as best they can.  God Bless.
