Putting the fun in Fund Raiser

You can click on the photo to enlarge it
  When I was making winter cards I wanted to put some snow on them but darn if I couldn't find my Polar White Flower Soft.  I looked and looked and it didn't turn up but I knew it would so I refused to buy more because I figure this jar will last for the rest of my life and at least 3 generations of crafters after me. 
For my winter cards I picked up a different product and really liked it so that worked out for me and just the other day, now that winter cards and snow are pretty much done I found the Flower Soft.  Does this sound like your life?  I thought so.  Maybe we should change our names to Murphy. 
Finding the Flower Soft turned out to be a good thing because it looks really good on this little lamb.  Isn't this lamb just adorable!?  It's a new digi image that's available from Paper Pretties.  It's part of a set of Easter/Spring images designed by Joni Stringfield.
don't forget the inside 
Because they are digital you'll get them right away so you can start working with them right away and have plenty of time to make decorations and to get your cards in the mail. 
AND this can be a totally guilt free purchase because Paper Pretties' owner Heather has made this a fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis.  See, you'll be doing a good deed when you buy this set.  All the proceeds (less Pay Pal fees) from this sale will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 
Stop over to the Paper Pretties blog where you can see the rest of the set and get all the details.  You'll be glad you did.
