Hope For Japan

Friday - April 22, 2011

Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima, Japan, and Close To My Heart is eager to help.  Even though it seems like it was ages ago, the earthquake and tsunami were just 5 weeks ago.  There is still a lot of recovery to be done.

During April, purchase the exclusive “Hope for Japan” A-size stamp set for the special price of only $5 (retail value $7.95) and Close To My Heart will donate 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross' tsunami relief efforts in Japan. This beautifully designed stamp set reminds us of how our hearts are hopeful for those who are in need.  It's easy to donate.  Just add the Hope For Japan stamp set to your order.  All of the $5 will go towards helping the Red Cross' Tsunami victims.  Click here if you would like to start shopping now.  Be sure to check out the "While Supplies Last" section for screamin' deals on retired products.  :)

This is the card I made with the Hope For Japan (A1118) stamp set.  I totally scraplifted the idea from Kandi Gallegos-Garcia.

I liked the box pleats that are on the side of the card.

We're making this card in class tonight (April 22)!  Call me at (425) 255-3731 if you want to join us!
