Hi friends! I hope you're doing well. I have a very special post for you today. I am joining with my new friend Karen Kelly to put on a blog hop for our dear friend Ann Cox and her family. Please join us! We have AMAZING sponsors, some awesome of our awesome bloggers are offering up giveaways on their blog, and there's going to be a whole lot of beautiful creations too. I'm the FIRST stop on this hop so I have all the info for you!
Ann Cox is a fellow card maker and a teacher. She and her husband Kevin have been together for 20 years and have a little 2 year old boy named Liam. Kevin is the primary caretaker for Liam while Ann teaches. Recently, Kevin had to have triple bypass heart surgery and he's having trouble with his kidney (he donated the other to his father.) This amazing family needs a little help to get through this hard time. They have had to put Liam in childcare and they have medical expenses piling up. The amazing Karen Kelly has set up a page to help raise funds for the family. Please check out their GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/g81dn0.

If you would like to show your support for the Cox Family by making a card and posting it to your blog, there will be a linkup at our last stop CAS-ual Fridays.
Here is my card for this hop. I wanted to send the family something that would cheer them up so of course I'm sending a card that looks EXACTLY like my daughter. (I know, I'm weird.) The stamps are from Mama Elephant and the patterned paper is Doodlebug.
I'm also offering an additional giveaway. My friend Kim just opened up a new scrapbook store, Scrap Happy Deals. I have purchased a $10 gift certificate for this blog hop. If you make a donation to the Cox Family's GoFundMe page and would like to win, please leave me an additional comment letting me know! ETA: Kim from Scrap Happy Deals read my post and has decided to match my purchase for this gift certificate! That means if you donate and leave a comment here you will be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to Scrap Happy Deals! Thank you Kim!!
Your next stop on this hop is the AMAZING Karen Kelly!
