Default I hope this is okay...

Okay, Moderators, feel free to pull this post. LOL! I truly am not trying to cause any problems here.

This picture is possible because of you guys and I am ever so grateful for the heartfelt response of the kind-hearted stampers and scrapbookers who reached out to make this possible. This is the check we are sending to Autism Speaks totally because of the sale of the stamp set "Love you to pieces!"

(I know it is against the TOS to direct anyone to our blogs for tutorials, giveaways and anything else like "Hey, I started a blog, check it out" kinda' thing. I also thought that putting this in the gallery would be weird cause it's not a stamped project so, I am trying it here.)

I also wanted to share it here in the General Stamping forum because more of you would see it.

If the mods have to pull, I totally understand and I apologize up front but it is uber cool and I am truly grateful as are all of the stampers and their families affected by Autism! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

(And a special thank you to SCS for making this board so great. The advertising program here is the best. They are so much a part of the success of fund-rasier as well!)

Hugs,
Gina K.

Great job Gina!!!!!! Such a worthwhile cause.... Autism affects so many lives. I'm sure there are many, like myself, who never thought it would affect them. Hugs hugs and more hugs!
