Good morning and welcome to the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Blog Hop. I recently found out that my mom was diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer. It was a total shock to all of us. I can't lie and say I didn't lose it. I sat in the floor and cried and prayed and cried more. My mom is my VERY BEST FRIEND. She is the definition of a mom. She sacrifices everything she has for us. Is patient. Loving. Kind. She had us at church every time the door was open. She is always there for us. She had our back . And still does. You didn't mess with her kids, lol! I have had many different emotions running through me during these past few weeks and have seen many emotions in my moms face. Notice I said seen, she is good at hiding that sort of thing from us trying to protect us. She is strong. I do want you all to know first and foremost that we KNOW that GOD IS IN CONTROL! He is going to take care of her and bring her through this. I will praise Him and glorify Him through it all.
This fundraiser was something that came to mind when I was desperately thinking and praying for a way to help my parents. A few friends of mine suggested that we host a blog hop to help with all related medical costs. We have decided to help raise enough money to cover these medical expenses, as well as aftercare expenses, by creating a digi shop. All the proceeds of the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop and the Fresh Brewed Designs Store will go directly to Mrs. Debbie to fund her lifesaving surgery and the aftercare necessary to bring her back to wellness. I also created a Give Forward account to assist my mom. If you would like to help, please stop by the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop, the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and/or the Give Forward Account. For those of you who are not able to contribute monetarily, I would love for you to add my mom, Mrs. Debbie, to your prayer list. If there is one thing we know, prayers can work miracles that money cannot and healing and wellness is what we are praying to receive.
All participants can be found in the linky list below, and we would love to have you join us! We do ask that you use a digi from the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop or the Fresh Brewed Designs Store, and the theme is Anything Goes. Two prize packages will be awarded, one prize for a digi purchaser and one prize for a blog hop participant. Winners will be announced here on Saturday, August 1st. The prizes will consist of stamps, papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc.; plus, some random prizes will be offered by some generous blog hop participants along the hop.
- Cara Malmrose is generously offering one random commenter a 12-month subscription to her awesome on-line crafty magazine, Through the Craft Room Door. It is filled with creativity, inspiration, crafty techniques, and loads of helpful information to fuel your artistic mojo.
- Lisa Décosse from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles is graciously awarding a sentiment kit and digital paper pack to a random commenter.
I could never thank you all enough. Thank you to everyone participating in the
blog hop whether it be adding a card to the inlinkz or just for hopping.
God is so good to me and has blessed me with such an amazing support group of
friends here in the cardmaking / blog world. Words can't express just how much you all
mean to me! Thank you SO VERY MUCH for your prayers being sent up for my mom.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
