Operation Julie's Smile


Welcome to the amazing blog hop for Operation Julie's Smile!  If you came here from Agnieszka Malyszek’s blog, then you are in the right spot.  If not, you may want to start from the beginning at the Sweet Stamp Shop’s blog and take your time.   You have ALL WEEKEND to hop with us and win prizes!

First a little background information about Julie and her story:
“The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae.  You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts, rubber stamps and more.  What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child.  It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth  replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out.  But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.
Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!
Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done. 
It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon."


For the hop today, I made a sweet little card using two Sweet Stamp Shop sets, Cool Scoop and Sweet Tooth.  I just love the cherry image in the Cool Scoop set and realized I hadn't even used it for a card yet!  So I inked it up right away and created this little card!  The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Springtime collection, which I got at my favorite store, i {heart} papers!!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here on the hop!  The next stop is Nicole’s blog.  Make sure you leave a comment here before you go so that you can have a chance at the amazing prizes up for grabs and if you can, please make a donation so we can help bring back a new smile for our friend.  Thank you so much for stopping by to support Julie.  Don't forget that all comments and donations are in the running for the amazing prizes!!  If you would like to see a list of the prize sponsors, just visit the Sweet Stamp Shop blog!

ETA:  I apologize for the missing information this morning on my blog, no idea what happened, it was all there last night!  Should all be fine now:)!
