Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween

I am sooooo excited to be a part of this "Halloween Hop Party"!!! The rules are simple; anything Halloween or Day of the Dead related are accepted in any form that you wanted to create in... cards, scrap layouts, ATC's, Altered Art or anything else that you can think of!!! The only real rule is you MUST use at least one stamp (regular or digital by any company) on your project!!! How cool is that? There will be daily prizes hidden along the way and also a HUGE Grand Prize to one lucky person!!!

The hop goes live everyday in October at 9:00 am Pacific time.

If you are following the blog list, you should have arrived here from Black Dragon's blog. If not, no worries, hop in any order you want, but be sure not to miss any blogs as there may be prizes hidden. The blog list is on my sidebar on the left. If you want to start from the beginning, click here.

Here is my offering for today:

I used Beatrix the Witch from Simply Betty Stamps' Steampunk Halloween collection.  I was on Betty's design team and had this image in digital form so I was able to color her digitally.  She is only sold in rubber, but it is high quality, deeply etched, cling mounted rubber and the stamp stands at a generous 5 inches tall!  The background is Itkupilli.

Betty's 17 year old son, Christian, has been diagnoised with Throat Cancer, which in itself is more than any parent/family/teenager should have to deal with, but to make matter's worse Betty must pay for some of Chritian's treatment up front.  As an oncology nurse, I know how expensive surgeries, chemotherapy, and radition can cost, not to mention all of the CT scans and PET scans and bone scans needed just to make a diagnosis.  Just a few treatments can bankrupt a family.

I was on Betty's design team for a year.  Betty really is one of the nicest people I know!  She's the sort of person that would do anything for anyone if they needed her help so I'm asking you to show Betty that people do care, and to help out in whatever way you can. You can buy Stamps and Digistamps from Betty's store, or donate to the 'Help Christian Fund' using the donate button on  the Simply Betty Stamps Blog. I know that times are tough financially for us all, but some things are more important, and remember every penny/cent counts because it all adds up.

In exchange for your donation you will get the awesome 'Zander' digistamp...

Thank you for taking the time to read about Betty's son.

Much Love
