Operation Julie's Smile

Welcome to Operation Julie's Smile blog hop and I am glad you can join us. If you come here from the fabulous Kimberly Crawford then you're on a right track. You have a whole weekend to complete the hop and win prizes.

A bit about this hop. The creative blogging community is doing this hop 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 & recommended that she give in and have 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.

If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click.  Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.”

Now, let's look at cards, shall we.  This 1st card, I  made it a while back, but I don't think I have ever share it here. Actually, I almost forgot about this card, till I was reviewing all  the pics in my camera. I can't believe that I almost forgot because I actually love this card. It's so my style!

                

Next, is a card I  made based on the latest MFT sketch challenge. 


Since this is such a large hop, there could be a break somewhere in the chain, so please bear with us. You can always find a complete list of the participant and the prize details on Sweet Stamp Shop Blog.

From here, please hop on over to Christina Maclaren. 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 Julie. To donate simply click on the Paypal button on the top right of my sidebar. Thank you for stopping by here and have a blessed day!
