I'm so honored to be participating in a very special blog hop to raise funds for Tennessee's flood relief efforts.
Here's how it works: The adorable images above are all part of a digital stamp set called A Helping Hand, designed by Jen Shults, owner/illustrator of Wild Flower Patch digital stamps, and Betty Roberts of Simply Betty (a new stamp line debuting June 1). One hundred percent of the proceeds from A Helping Hand sales will be donated to the Nashville area Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. I hope you'll consider helping out by purchasing this set!

I just love this little guy with his shovel and tool belt. I printed him on Neenah Classic Crest card stock and colored him with Copics. I dirtied up the edges with Ranger's Pumice Stone Distress Ink, then gave them a heavy distressing with a distressing tool. The papers are by Fancy Pants. I embellished with some mini brads, paper piecering, and some woven trim tied off with a small length of natural hemp.
On the inside, I've included one of the sentiments from A Helping Hand: "The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm."
Check out what these awesome stamping friends have done with A Helping Hand:

A big thanks to Jen and Betty for creating this set and to Jessica for organizing the hop!
