Stamps for a Cause

I've been wanting to post about this special stamp set for weeks now! Have you noticed the badge on the left hand side of my blog? Sweet 'n Sassy has created this adorable stamp set, Make Lemonade, and is donating 100% of the profits to Alex's Lemonade Stand, an organization whose goal is to raise money to fight childhood cancer. ALSF was founded by Alex, a precious little girl whose life was taken by cancer in 2004. Since it's founding, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has been committed to finding a cure for all children with cancer. The foundation operates on the principle introduced by Alexandra “Alex” Scott - “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” I have a special place in my heart for charities that raise money to fight cancer; seeing my own Mother die at 37 from lymphoma and watching as a friend's two year old son endured painful cancer treatments (thankfully, he is now in remission) for many months. And with access to so many stories on the Internet, I have read too many agonizing stories of parents losing children to this terrible disease. It's heart breaking....so if you're in need of a sweet lemon and lemonade pitcher image, won't you consider purchasing this digi set from Sweet 'n Sassy...the cost is only $3.00. We're so thankful for any way we can help ALSF! My card today features the Make Lemonade image along with Jillibean Soup papers (from Wholly Scrap) and ribbon from SU!. And the layout is from this week's Sweet Stop sketch! Oh...pictures from yesterday's Week in the Life...Only one more day to finish out the week! My handsome boys ready for church...
My fabulous shoes! LOL! These are one of my favorite pair of sandals...They have a fun wedge heel... After church my hubby and oldest decided to try out the hoola hoop, courtesy of our neighbor's daughters toys. It was pretty entertaining...hee hee The new house being built next to us...sigh...it doesn't make us all that happy to have a house so close but we're hopeful that we'll end up with good neighbors and we'll be able to look back on our anxious days of listening to eight hours of hammering fondly. :-) We had some friends over for dinner and this little hunk of sweet love came along! Isn't she the cutest thing in the whole wide world? It makes me crave having more babies...How about her "smile for the camera" face, how cute is that? And my big boy made me so proud last night. He played with and entertained our friend's daughter the entire time they were at our home. He did all he could to make her giggle, brought her toys, played hide and seek, and patty cake. It was beyond precious to watch...now if he could just treat his little brother as well...humm.... Enjoy!!
