Get Hopping with Great Impressions Stamps and the Ronald McDonald House!

Welcome to the Ronald McDonald House Charity Hop
sponsored by 
September 28-30

You should have arrived here from Dawn's blog. If not, you will want to start at the Great Impressions Stamps Blog  or check where you are on the list at the end of my post.  We don't want you to miss a thing!  Remember, stamping prizes are secretly hiding in several of the blogs, so be sure to leave everyone a little comment love!

Winners will be announced on the Great Impressions Stamps blog on Tuesday, October 2nd.

A little about RMH from the Great Impressions Stamps blog:

"The Ronald McDonald House provides shelter, food, and moral support to families with seriously ill children.  While these families are often overwhelmed with their current crises, they are also humbled by the outpouring of care showered on them by doctors, nurses, other families in the House, as well as, their own friends and family. Your handmade cards will provide them an opportunity to return the kindness and will leave a "great impression" on both the families giving the cards and the recipients."

We love to create, right? And what better way to share what we love to do than to share with those who could use a heartfelt lift? The types of cards that are needed : thank you, thinking of you, birthday, and sympathy.

If you have a few cards you could donate to the RMH families, please email Jenny, with the subject RMH Hop, and she'll get the info to you!

Yesterday, I showed you a few leaves...well, I didn't make only 3...I made a bushel! Okay, maybe not a bushel, but it was a lot of leaves! Funny thing...those leaves were perfect for my card yesterday, but I made the leaves with today's card in mind!

When I was a kid, I remember raking leaves and jumping into the soft, fragrant piles. It was always so much fun! I know you've got a few more blogs to see, so I won't keep you are the Great Impressions Stamps I used on today's card:

and a few more pictures...
(I'll share how I made the leaves next week! Tutorial coming!)

So glad you could join us this weekend to help support the Ronald McDonald House. You're off to a great start! Up next on the hop is Patti. I know you can't wait to see what she's made...tell her I sent ya! ;)

Inky hugs,
