Fundraiser Challenge - Each Card Equals $6

Updated to Add:  Our uber talented Scrapette Kim S. is matching $1 for each card so our donation will be $6 per card - woohoo!

Hello everyone and woohoo it's Friday!  This has been a very long week and I'm looking forward to the weekend.  I'm so excited about today's Townscrapper Challenge.  It is a Puzzle Theme to celebrate Autism Awareness Month and we hope we have an amazing turnout of participants to support a a special cause.   The DT has done an outstanding job with their creations so be sure to checkout their work HERE.  I've used Evan, an exclusive Victoria Case image for The Townscrapper and he is such a cutie to colour.

Autism Card for TTS

























Hope you will be inspired to participate in this week's challenge because ME, Leah, Zoe, Katie, Ann and Kim S. are going to donate $1 for every one of the DT cards plus another $1 for each of the participant's cards to the Kennedy Krieger Institute.  This means that for every card made for this challenge, there will be a $6 donation to the Institute.  Hobby + Fundraise - woohoo ~ what a great idea from our very own Leah Extraordinaire who got us hooked on the idea.  So get inky and spread the word about our Drive for Autism.  The more people who play, the more the more support for the Institute and their programs.  Plus, Plus, Plus, we still have a prize for one very lucky random participant who will win the new Lola and Zeke rubber stamps (awesome cute images!), exclusively designed for The Townscrapper by Victoria Case.

Here's a close-up:

Puzzle template was created and kindly provided by Zoe.  She's happy to share it so go ahead and use it for the challenge  ~ just right click and save it.  Bonus is you can resize it to fit your image too!



Well it looks like this week has been all about boys in my posts.  I've never made so many boyish cards in all the time I've been crafting and its been a nice change.  But next week I'll be back to my girlie cards - lol.

That's it for today.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you get a chance to play along with our fundraising challenge and we would so appreciate you spreading the word about our Drive for Autism.

Big Hugs,
Maria
