From the Xander Zone Blog Hop & 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 Lea's blog, then you are right on track!  Please continue on!

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.

My first project up today features the oh-so-cool Xander.  He looks so confident, doesn't he?  Perfect card to send on to Christian as I know he's the kind of guy who will face this head on and fight.  I printed out my own sentiment...this is something we say at my house.  Don't worry, I GOT this!  I used some of my favey BG paper from the Oliver line.  I know you're probably tired of seeing it already, huh?

My next projects use the other images in this sure to check out the SBS Store to buy them for yourself!  First up I used Phoebe and Shelby on a card that's for my GHOULS.  Fun, right?  I found this paper and chipboard at Target's Dollar Spot.  You cannot beat that deal!  I cut out and popped up Shelby...not sure you can tell in the photos.

Next I have a Halloween brag book page I'm working on.  I used the ever cute Gabby image for it since she was perfecto with all her spidery goodness!  Those are spiderweb cookies that I made in the picture.

Last for the images I have Cece.  I made a large tag for a birthday gift with her...I thought she was great!  As if she's saying, "No!  You cannot have my lolli!"  LOL!

From here please hop over to the ever lovely Sandra's blog!  Thank you so much for supporting Betty and her family by stopping by today!

If you get lost along the way, here’s the hop order!
