From the Xander Zone Blog Hop and Auction


Welcome to the Xander Zone!! You are in for quite a trip through todays Blog Hop and Auction. Our dear friend Betty Roberts, owner of Simply Betty Stamps has just found out this week that her 17 year old son Christian has Stage 1 Throat Cancer. He will be having surgery next week and many months of Therapy to follow. (To read more from Betty on what’s going on please go HERE)





Betty’s DT and the Crafty Sprouts DT along with a few friends have come together today for the From the Xander Zone Blog Hop and Auction! If you are stumbling into this hop please head to Crafty Sprouts to catch the beginning of the hop!





If you hopped here from Cyndi then you are right on track!





As you hop along today you will see cards created with Xander, the first in a new series to be released called “From the Xander Zone”. He is available with a donation to Betty’s family. Christian will be undergoing Surgery next week to remove his tonsils and then the thrice weekly Therapy will begin on the tumor. His therapy could last for many months.

















There is also a contest running through October 16th and Christian will pick a random winner who will receive the whole collection! The details on the contest are at the SBS blog.





As you hop today you will also see many cards and projects up for Auction. In order to make a bid on an item leave a comment on that person’s blog with your offer AND your name and email address.

Thanks a bunch for joining us on this Hop! I am so happy to be able to be a part of this and help out! Here is my card I made for Christian, I used the Ali and Baby Turkey Digi from Jude and the Rockers Fall Digi's.
