Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism
Hello and thank you for joining me today for this very special blog hop to stand up and show our unity against racism. You should have come from Juliana Michaels. Your next stop is Betz Golden. What I love about paper crafting, besides getting to play with stickers and fun stamps, is the supportive and inclusive community. When Justine Hovey asked for participants to this blog hop I did not hesitate to sign up.The goal of this hop is to come together to stand with our crafty sisters and brothers of color not just in the paper crafting community, but also to show our support in the never ending fight for equality all over the world. I hope you feel inspired today and unite with the papercrafting community to stand against racism. Please continue reading to find out how I made three encouraging cards.

Cape Cod Resilience Fund
Hello crafty friends. Today I wanted to give my friend, Jenn Shurkus a huge shout out for her endeavor to support the local businesses of Cape Cod. See, I live in Massachusetts and the Cape means a lot to me as I have so many fond memories enjoying the beaches, riding the Cape Cod Rail Trail and summering in one of the loveliest places on Earth. Jenn Shurkus is pledging to donate $10.00 from each sale of her exclusive Cape Cod stamp set to the Cape Cod Resilience Fund from love.live.local which is a shop on the Cape that sells crafts from local artists. My blog post today is dedicated to sharing some inspiration from this exclusive Cape Cod stamp set. You can buy the set directly from Jenn Shurkus here. Please read on for how I made some interactive cards with the really cute images from this exclusive set. I have included affiliate links within this post.
