From the Xander Zone!!!

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. 

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 came her first please head to Crafty Sprouts to catch the beginning of the hop!

If you hopped here from  Wendy 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. Please remember that it might not be you who gets the winning bid, so check back if you really want it!  Since this happened so fast, I have nothing to auction off other than a card of your choice that I will be happy to create based on your specifications.  Leave me a comment with your bid if you are interested.

At the end of the Hop (Tuesday night October 11th at 9pm EST) the auction will come to a close. Winners will be sent a paypal invoice and the Winners will be announced Wednesday on the Simply Betty Stamps blog. Please note that we are asking for timely payment, with 48 hours of the announcement on Tuesday morning or the runner up will be chosen. This is for the simple fact that Betty’s family needs this money as quickly as possible for all of these unexpected and out-of-pocket needs.

If you would like to send a card to Christian please mail to:
