Hello! Today’s card is special, because the main items I used (Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground and a stamp from Stamp Anniething) are both being offered by their respective companies in an effort to raise money to help the people of Ukraine. By purchasing either (or both) of these items, you will be directly helping folks that really need us right now.

I was really inspired when Amber (owner of Doodles Paper Playground) told me she was creating a Sparkle Blend specifically to donate money to World Central Kitchen. This Blend is called Hope for Ukraine, and it’s bold and beautiful. In addition, all proceeds for the previously released Sunflower Sparkle Blend will also go to World Central Kitchen. More info is in the Sparkle Blends Etsy Shop. I later found out about Stamp Anniething’s Molly Sunflower stamp, along with other items that have proceeds going to the Ukraine Red Cross. These items are also on sale for a limited time.
I colored Molly with Copics and found some papers that worked well with her and the Sparkle Blend. The yellow paper is from Lawn Fawn, and I believe the other is from Echo Park. You can see how pretty that yellow and blue Sparkle Blend is. I love the big clay hearts that are in it, as well as the flat yellow flowers.
These 2 companies did not plan to come together for Ukraine, rather their special fundraising items just happen to work together perfectly. I hope you will consider getting at least one of these items for yourself, or donating directly to World Central Kitchen or the Ukraine Red Cross. Again, the shops have more info over on their websites. Please visit the Sparkle Blends Shop to see all of the stunning Blends that are currently available.
