CTMH Operation Smile Blog Hop - - Happy Everything

Welcome to the CTMH Operation Smile Blog Hop
For this hop we have 31 Close To My Heart Consultants 
sharing their creations featuring CTMH 's exclusive Operation Smile Stamp Set,  
Happy Everything, a set of 13 stamps.  

You can change the life of a child with just one stamp set.  When you purchase the D-size Happy Everything stamp set at full retail price from now through August 2015, Close to My Heart will donate $3* of the proceeds to Operation Smile. 
Since it's founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.  It only take an hour for volunteer medical teams to perform these life-altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime.
* Donation is $3USD. Stamps purchased in US states AL and MA excluded from donation due to legal requirements.
