Digital Stamp Fundraiser for Luke

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.

I have posted before about my little friend Luke and his battle with complications from Spinal Meningitis. You can read about his story here and my card drive for Luke here.

I have purchased a special image called "Little Luke" as a fundraiser for Luke and his family (Luke likes Star Wars which is why I chose this image)...
100% of the sale of this digital stamp will be donated to Luke's family to help with medical bills and travel expenses for his treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

I have started this image as a digital stamp, but have plans to turn it into a rubber stamp if there is enough interest.

**If you would like this image as a rubber stamp, please leave me a comment saying so**
That will help me decide if it is worth the added expense to offer this image in rubber as well.

In the mean time, here is a card I made for Little Luke using his image...

Please help this family by purchasing this digital stamp.

It would be great if you would help spread the word as well.
You can grab the image above and link it to this post or here on the store.

Thank you so much!!

Product Spotlight- Kenny K

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!!

**Moving Note**
I will be moving to Orange Park, FL (just outside of Jacksonville) the week of March 7th - 21st.
I will have to shut the store down around March 8th for one or two weeks
(depending on if there are any issues with getting internet hooked up at the new house).
I am sorry for any inconveniences, but my husband's job was transferred so we must move.
I will keep the store open for placing orders, but there will be a delay in shipping during the move. Thank you for your understanding.

Now it's time for a new Product Spotlight.
This week we are showcasing Kenny K rubber stamps!!
Through Sunday night, all Kenny K stamps will be
on sale 25% off!!

My restock and new release shipment has not arrived yet, but are expected by the end of the week. I have placed those items on "Pre-Order". They will ship out by the end of the week.

Now here are the awesome DT samples...

Chris used the fun All That rubber stamp from Kenny K. She also used the Lilac Avenue Paper, lavender silk ribbon from May Arts, black crochet ribbon, the bow easy, Whimsy Shapeology ticket die, and the flower charm also available at Stamp and Create.

Heidi made a cute box to hold her iPods and countless sets of headphones. She used Download Diva Kenny K for Whimsy Stamp. She used some colourful Basic Grey June Bug paper, May Arts White Silk Ribbon and the bow easy.

Vicky has used Rock Chick which has been coloured in copics. The Kaisercraft - Utopia papers have been pierced and a ribbon and bow added using the bow easy.

Jeanette has used Download Diva to create her card. The image was colored using Copic Markers. The luxurious May Arts ribbon holds her card closed.

I made this card a few weeks ago for the Magical Monday Challenge (so it's not a new card). I used some retired Basic Grey paper, Whimsy Music Notes stamp, Whimsy Friendship Ticket Sentiment, and Whimsy Ticket Die. The ticket die is on back order and should arrive in a few weeks.

Stampavie and Kraftin' Kimmie new releases now shipping

This is the 2nd post tonight (I'm sorry).
If you missed the previous post about the Ebay Auction Fundraiser, scroll down.

I received the new CHA Stampavie release tonight....

Plus I also received the newest Kraftin' Kimmie 50's Release...

Monday is a postal holiday so weekend orders will ship out on Tuesday.

Ebay auction for my buddy Luke

I have posted about my little buddy Luke before.

You can read about his card drive here and his story here.

But to quickly summarize...
On New Year's Eve he suffered a 30 minute seizure caused from Spinal Meningitis. He has been in the hospital or inpatient rehab ever since. He has loss of movement on his left side, uncontrolled movement on his right side, loss of speech and swelling on his brain. Recently he had some setbacks and is now back in the hospital again.

Luke just turned 6 years old yesterday. We lived across the street from Luke for about 4 years and he was one of my son's best friends.

He will be transferred to Mayo in Rochester, MN in a few weeks (which will not be covered by his insurance).

A friend of ours is hosting an Ebay Auction to raise funds for Luke's growing medical expenses (plus the cost of plane tickets and housing while in Minnesota).

I have donated 4 $50 gift certificates to the auction

I have also donated a new/in-box Stampin' Up Color Caddy as well...
If you are interested in getting a great discount on the gift certificates or if you are in need of a SU color caddy, you can go to Ebay and see the items for Auction for Luke here...

I will probably have more items to add later. But those were items I was quickly able to provide for the Auction.

If you would like to just donate money to Luke and his family, you can send me a paypal payment using my paypal email address at - just write in a comment that it is a donation for Luke and I will give 100% off the donation to Luke's family.

It just breaks my heart! There were no warning moment he was fine, then the next he was seizing and has not been the same since. Luke is a BRILLIANT boy (at the age of 5 1/2 years old he read the novel "The Chronicles of Narnia"!! My 6 year old is still learning how to sound out the words he reads!!). Luke also plays the violin - even playing for the former First Lady once.

Thank you so much for your help.
