Operation Julie's Smile & Sweet Stamp Shop Release

Hello, friends! I know many of you have heard of, or personally know Julie Ranae Murray. She's the design team coordinator/consultant extraordinaire for numerous craft/stamp companies (The Twinery, Craft's Meow, Sweet Stamp Shop to name a few) and today, she needs our help. Here, in her own words, is Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop:

Many of you may know that a few weeks ago, Julie Ranae had to have emergency oral surgery resulting in the removal of her two front teeth.  The dentist at that time believed the best course of action would be to remove the rest of her teeth and replace them with permanents to avoid years of dental work. Relieved at finding a solution to this major dental problem, she visited the office for dental surgery that week. 

Unfortunately, it wasn't the visit she was expecting.  After the consultation and scheduling the surgery, the surgeon's office informed her that she would need to bring $4000 back to the appointment with her and they would proceed.  This amount would not include the dentures to follow.

Here Julie is today, sitting without front teeth that were pulled with the belief that they would be replaced immediately. It is an overwhelming experience for our dear friend and one that I hope our creative community can help with.

So Nicole, with the help of our awesome stamping community, put together a HUGE three day blog hop with various companies and design teams to help raise funds for Operation Julie's Smile. So far, over $2500 in prizes are available for both participants and those who donate to this worthy cause to bring Julie's smile back.

The hop starts here tomorrow, Friday, October 7th and runs through Sunday, October 9th. There's a fabulous line up of designers and friends, and you won't want to miss all their creative cards and projects they're going to share.

And if you're so inclined to help Julie, I've posted a donation button on my sidebar. Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity. I just know that Julie will be sharing her sweet smile with us again!
