Good morning and Happy Friday SCT friends! We have a little something special to share with you. Recently we learned of a special campaign our friends at Close To My Heart are promoting right now and we wanted to share Operation Smile with you. Operation Smile is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping children with cleft palate, cleft lip, and other facial deformities receive lifesaving and life-changing surgeries. They are truly a special organization and this video, which might evoke some misty eyes, is what Operation Smile is all about.


Since February is the month of love, Close To My Heart focuses their efforts on expressing their love for Operation Smile and has created the My Acrylix® Share the Love stamp set! (learn more here!) The best part besides this adorable stamp set? For every stamp set sold, they will donate $7 USD to Operation Smile.


Here are a few of the cute cards create with the Share The Love stamp set:





Close To My Heart would also like to share a little love with one lucky SCT reader! One lucky winner will receive a $100 shopping spree in the newest Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions idea book! Repeat after me…ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS OF CRAFTY GOODNESS!
