Intro to November 2019 Whimsical Bundle

Happy November everyone!  

It’s the first of the month and we are all ready to jump into the November 2019 release!  Today is day number one of four days of introductions here on the blog!  Just like last month, we will cap off our week of introductions with a blog hop on release day, November 5th.  Let's start off the introductions with this month’s WHIMSICAL stamps and dies!  Our fans of this style will be happy to see two whimsical sets this month!  

The first whimsical set to introduce is from long-time Waffle Flower collaborator, illustrator Big Bear and Bird.  The Blessed Bear (Stamp, Die, Combo) features our favorite fuzzy and feather friends along with other forest critters and elements.  Included are sentiments that are sure to give you the warm fuzzies! 

Also new this month is Winter Hamsters (Stamp, Die, Combo) by illustrator Liz Mytinger.  This set is packed with Liz’s signature hamsters enjoying the joys of the season.  They will totally get you in the holiday mood!  This set is perfect for creating all kinds of little holiday scenes.  

Speaking of holiday scenes, we have the most fun scene-building die this month!  The Cozy Cabin Die by cardmaker JJ Bolton is chock full of elements to create cute rustic cabin scenes.  The scale of this set works perfectly with all our petite critter and people stamps.  There's even an A2-sized frame included in the set to complete your cards.  

Anybody making a wish list?  Come back tomorrow for our next set of introductions!

2019 Layton's Legacy Fundraiser & Card Drive

2019 Layton's Legacy Fundraiser & Card Drive

Hi everyone!

Today, our friend Lea Lawson is hosting a fund raiser for a truly heartfelt and important cause. Waffle Flower is honored to sponsor one of the prizes you can win by donating to the fundraiser or participating in Lea's card drive. You can head to Lea's blog to take part: http://www.lealawsoncreates.com/2019/10/2nd-annual-laytons-legacy-fundraiser.html

 Here is some information about the Layton's Legacy Fundraiser in Lea's words: 

"Fundraiser Info:
In honor of remembrance of my son, Layton Caleb, we are raising money to purchase a $50 Starbucks gift card for all 50 beds in the level 4 NICU at the U of M Masonic Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, MN.

Fundraising will run from October 15th - November 10th. Shortly after we will purchase the gift cards, and bring them to a social worker at the hospital the week of November 17th. This is the anniversary of the date we lost Layton, and I can think of no better way to honor his memory than to give a small comfort to parents who find themselves thrust into NICU life.

If we raise in excess of the amount needed to purchase the gift cards, the remaining balance will be donated to the Upper Midwest Ronald McDonald house in Layton's name.

I was in the NICU with Layton for 5 months and 7 days, and I remember the day a social worker handed me a card with a $20 Starbucks card in it. I broke. It's really hard being a parent to a very sick baby in the NICU, and it's really nice when you are reminded that so many people out there understand that. 

I also really want to be able to help keep the memory of Layton alive, and be able to share his story. I am so grateful for any donation, no matter the size, as it allows me to tell people about that amazing little boy who fought for every single moment of his life. Thank you SO much for your donation - I appreciate it more than words can explain."
