Help us spread the word about "blogs 4 boobies"

Now on with my cards.
I have a four pack of cards for you to bid on.
For each of them I used some of the wonderful stamps 
by our Blogs 4 Boobies sponsor Skipping Stones Design.
I used Ranger & Brutus Monroe Embossing Powders, 
Ranger Watercolor Paper and Brusho Crystal Colours.

All four cards are being auctioned off as a set.

The sentiment: You mean the world to me.

The sentiment: Happy Birthday to you.

The sentiment: You make my heart sing.

The sentiment: Hello

Please share this post on social media, by email with your friends and family 
or any way that you can to spread the word. The more bidders the more $$ we raise for
a very worthy cause. 



*"How to place a bid on my card/project"

Step #1
Find the comment section of the blog that shows the "Blogs 4 boobies" card or project that you want to buy. *Please note you may only bid on the card/project shown in the specific "blogs 4 boobies" post. *Any bids not placed on the correct post will be considered invalid.

Step #2
Once you are in the "blogs 4 boobies" comment section fill in the dollar and cents amount of what you are willing to pay for the card/project. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. Remember your bid includes shippingas well as the card/or project. 100% of the money your bid will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation

Step #3
Next to your $ bid please type in your email address. During a silent auction bidders sign their name next to their bid. typing your email address is the electronic equivalent of signing your bid. Also it will help the blogger contact you if you are the highest bidder.

Step #4
Watch and wait.
Once you have entered your bid/comment sit back and wait. If someone out bids you then you may bid again. Bidding will continue until 8:00 p.m. Mountain time 7 days after the first post. 
* Please note that the participating stampers/bloggers will probably re-post their Blogs 4 Boobies card/project on the during the week of bidding in June. When the blogger re-post their project then the bidding will continue on the NEWEST post and that comment section.
"What do I do once I place a bid"
Watch and Wait
The "Winner of the Auction" Will be the highest bid (that includes an email address) in the comment section of the MOST RECENT blogs 4 boobies post at the end of the silent auction. Please note that ALL cards/projects WILL BE REPOSTED seven days after their initial post. The auction will end at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time seven days after the first post.

Things to keep in mind:

Near the end of the bidding you may not see bids as they come in. 
Most blogs have a comment feature where the blogger must approve comments before they are published. So bid high. You might have the highest bid
