Curves Cancer Fundraiser

Hi there

Thanks for stopping by!

My local Curves has organised a big fundraiser tomorrow afternoon, a High Tea! Im really looking forward to it! $10 for a ticket plus extra for any raffles that you want to enter, Ive put in $15 extra for raffles, the generosity of the local businesses has been amazing! All prizes have been donated for the raffle!

A month or so ago, I approached Stampin’ Up! Australia about the fundraiser asking for a donation of products for a raffle. Well they sent it, and I must say I was blown away by their generosity! A huge box arrived at my house, my friend Emily estimated it to be approx $1,500 worth! I split it up into some really nice packs and they raffle them tomorrow!

After my friend Mary’s positive comments from her birthday card, I made some more like her’s, to go with the raffles, I hope that the women who win them, really appreciate the value of the prizes!

Here are the cards that I made to go with the major prizes. I’ll come back tomorrow with more from the fundraiser.

1/10 – The fundraiser was a major success! There were around 70 ladies there, at $10 per ticket and there were lots of ladies who bought tickets but couldnt come on the day. We had a variety of different teas to try and lovely sweets and treats to eat! I won 2 prizes, – a lovely scented candle and a $50 Creative Memories voucher 🙂 There were some ladies there, that won 5 or 6 prizes each! Im guessing they spent alot of money on the raffle tickets.  I wont find out how much was raised till next week, I will pop back then to let you know. 🙂


For Mary

Hi there.

Thanks for stopping by!

I got busy last weekend and made my bestie in Nelson, NZ a birthday card. She turns 49 on Sunday! Ive had several facebook messages from her today, she received my card in the post. She is really wrapped with it and plans to frame it! Which of course I love to hear!

This is her facebook photo, which I drew my inspiration from! 🙂

I hope she has a fantastic day on Sunday and does something special! Blessings Mary! Love ya! 🙂

Hi there

Thanks for stopping by! I really do appreciate all the comment love I got last week! And not all from the Stampin 411 Creators! 🙂

This is this weeks challenge – I LOVE it! It screams scrapbooking to me.

My page is not my normal style, but I am happy to have these gorgeous photos done finally! They are from my daughter Caitlin’s 7th birthday last December. If you click on my photo, you can see my page a little better.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there

Thanks for stopping by!

I didnt have a chance to play along with last weeks challenge, so I wanted to make sure I did this week!

Here is this weeks challenge and my card 🙂 Thanks to my bestie for loaning me her camera, as I still have not bought one!

My ever critical hubby hates the pink! He would like to see it done in blue, so might give that a go soon and share asap.

21 Sept – Breaking news! I have just bought myself a new camera – wahoo!

29 Sept – Im involved with a fundraiser at Curves in a few days, so I made a card to go with a raffle prize, Ive remade the card from this challenge, Im a little happier with this one! 🙂

Ive been wanting to try bleaching for a while now, Ive just unpacked my aqua pens, so I thought what better time to try it! 🙂 So here is my first attempt!
