A Helping Hand

A couple days ago my good friend, Jessica Diedrich, asked if I would participate in a blog hop to raise money for the Nashville area Red Cross Relief Fund and I immediately said yes! 

The Nashville, TN area experienced some terrible flooding this past week and many families were greatly affected.  Jessica has a very touching video you can view on her blog here.

Today, some of my very favorite stampers and I are showing you cards made with images designed by Jen Shults, owner/illustrator of Wildflower Patch Kids digital Stamps, and Betty Roberts of Simply Betty, a new stamp line debuting June 1st.   This set is called "A Helping Hand".  The set will retail for $15 and 100% of the proceeds are being donated to the Nashville area Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Set will go on sale Monday at the Wildflower Patch Kids store.


I used the darling Country Girl Daisy for my card.  She was printed on PTI white and colored in with Copic Markers.  I cut her out with a Curved Rectangle Nestability and sponged some Ranger Distress inks in Antique Linen and Tea Dye before removing from the die.  I couldn't resist using some October Afternoon Farm Fresh dp for this card!  Some Machine stitching and ribbon and I called it done!

Now it's time to hop around and see what the other incredible women did with this set!
