A Helping Hand Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!! Happy Monday!!

I am SO honored to be a part of today's Helping Hand Blog Hop alongside some of my most favorite stampers!

As some of you may know, there has been terrible flooding in Nashville TN, just a short 9 miles away from where our sweet friend Jessica lives.

There hasn't been much media coverage about this terrible tragedy, and you can see a video about the damage and the people affected by this right HERE on Jessica's Blog.

The set we are all sharing today is a digital set called "A Helping Hand" , 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. 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.

For my card, I printed this darling image onto Neenah Solar Crest White and colored him with Copic Markers. I added some Moonlight Smooch to his shovel, as well as to the hammer hanging from his toolbelt. I cut him out with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo.

I kept my layout simple, and I embossed my Kraft panel with the Herringbone Embossing Folder. The patterned paper is from Lil' Man by Cosmo Cricket, and the fun screw brads are available from Taylored Expressions, as is the aluminum squares I used as part of a mat behind my image as well as the border of my patterned paper.

The sentiment, "Thanks for Caring", is also from A Helping Hand, and I cut it out and layered it with Oval Nestabilities. I added a bit of color with a Copic Marker and sponged this as well.
