From the Xander Zone Blog Hop and Auction

Welcome to the Xander Zone!! You are in for quite a trip through todays Blog Hop and Auction. Our dear friend Betty Roberts, owner of Simply Betty Stamps has just found out this week that her 17 year old son Christian has Stage 1 Throat Cancer. He will be having surgery next week and many months of Therapy to follow. (To read more from Betty on what’s going on please go HERE)
Betty’s DT and the Crafty Sprouts DT along with a few friends have come together today for the From the Xander Zone Blog Hop and Auction! If you are stumbling into this hop please head to Crafty Sprouts to catch the beginning of the hop!
If you hopped here from Suzi's blog then you are right on track!
As you hop along today you will see cards created with Xander, the first in a new series to be released called “From the Xander Zone”. He is available with a donation to Betty’s family. Christian will be undergoing Surgery next week to remove his tonsils and then the thrice weekly Therapy will begin on the tumor. His therapy could last for many months.
There is also a contest running through October 16th and Christian will pick a random winner who will receive the whole collection! The details on the contest are at the SBS blog.
As you hop today you will also see many cards and projects up for Auction. In order to make a bid on an item leave a comment on that person’s blog with your offer AND your name and email address. Please remember that it might not be you who gets the winning bid, so check back if you really want it!
At the end of the Hop (Tuesday night October 11th at 9pm EST the auction will come to a close. Winners will be sent a paypal invoice and the Winners will be announced on the Simply Betty Stamps blog. Please note that we are asking for timely payment, with 48 hours of the announcement on Tuesday morning or the runner up will be chosen. This is for the simple fact that Betty’s family needs this money as quickly as possible for all of these unexpected and out-of-pocket needs.

For my post I have used a stamp form Simply Betty, Max and Miller.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the card (American Crafts specialty paper) and used the stars for the image and stickle them.  Easy peasy!!! The inside is a sentiment from Crafty Sprouts' Let's Go Blog Hopping set.

From here please hop over to Wendy. If you get lost along the way, here’s the hop order!
In order to raise some money to assist Betty with some of the expenses coming her way, I have put up for auction today a beautiful Creative Memories 12x12 red poinsetta coverset.  Bidding should start at no less than $10.    Happy Bidding! Please no international bidding as the shipping can be very costly.  Thank you for your understanding.

Christian, we all wish you a very speedy recovery and we are praying for you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
