Charity Card Making Day - Thank You

Yesterday we had our Charity Card Making Day – and what a fantastic day it was too. It was wonderful to spend a day crafting with such a lovely group of people and to know we were raising money for a good cause.

We were using the fantastic Strengths and Hopes Stamp Set which is raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The funds we raised will also be going to the same charity. We don’t know final numbers yet but I am pleased with how it is all looking. In addition to supporting this international charity (which has several research projects here in the UK) we also made well in excess of 80 cards which we are donating to local Cancer Charity Shops for them to sell to raise additional funds.

I want to thank everyone who came along, you each made a real difference and I really enjoyed stamping with you. I would also like the thank the lovely Karen from my team who helped organise and run this event with me. By popular demand we are looking to run another of these days – if you want to make sure you are one of the first people to hear about it please make sure you are subscribed to my newsletter (there is a box at the top right hand corner of this blog).

I will leave you with one of the cards we made – and this one was very popular with the ladies who joined us for the afternoon. The colours are River Rock, Bravo Burgandy and Marina Mist.
