Now, I need all of you wonderful card makers to visit the awesome Amy Tsuruta at Tsuruta Designs!  She is hosting a card challenge in Sebastian's honor and there are some great prizes!  All you have to do is make a card, blog about it to help us spread the word about the card drive and link up to Amy's blog. Of course, we also need you to mail the card. lol!

Amy is just so amazingly talented and kind that it's unbelievable.

I don't want the card card makers out there to be left out, so my neighbor and I are hosting our own little challenge here. 

You see, store bought cards are welcomed too!  We understand that not everyone has the time or in my case ~ the talent to make a card. 

We're hoping that you'll help us spread the word about Sebastian's surgery and the card drive.  Make a blog post, send an email to your contacts, post it on face book or twitter or google+, share the information with your church group, your book club, your bowling league or post a sign in your front yard.  Then send me a link, copy, email or picture.

Please, if you post a sign in your front yard ~ send a picture cause that would be so cool!  lol!

While we were out running errands today my neighbor and I hit up Michael's to pick up some goodies we could give away.  Now, as I'm sure you know Michael's on a Saturday afternoon in December is no place for the fainthearted or easily bruised and I am easily bruised!  We had no idea what to buy since neither one of us are card makers or stampers, so we decided to just pick up some things that we thought were cute.  Forgive the horrible pictures we used her phone so that I could get this posted.

First there are these cute plastic stamps

Some rubber stamps

Maybe someone can explain the difference between the stamps to me.  I mean, other than the obvious wood, rubber and plastic thing.  lol!

And some glitter

I picked out the glitter cause if I ever learn how to make cards, I am going to make cards with glitter. Lots and lots and LOTS of glitter! Glitter rocks!

I've also got two $10 gift certificates to Whimsy Stamps to give away.

These prizes are all courtesy of my neighbor and her husband ~ even though he doesn't know about it yet.  And...even though he doesn't know it yet, OCG is going to cover the cost of postage.  Don't worry we'll tell them sooner or later.  lol!
