Whew! aka: the fundraiser is finished!

Well - we had a great time at our Stamp-a-Stack for Seniors last night! To explain briefly, since I work on weekends I wasn't able to put together something on World Cardmaking Day - so instead I helped host a cardmaking event that raised funds for our local Senior Center. All the supplies were donated which meant 100% of the money collected went to the center for enhancing the services provided to senior citizens in the community.

I have a lot of photos to share, so I'll keep the "chatter" to a minimum. Each person attending made 8 simple cards. And we had several door prizes too. The wonderful ladies of our Friday Night Craft Club {woo hoo!} provided the most delicious snacks - which I forgot to photograph - but trust me, it was yummie!

Here are the ladies in action:

workin' it ... workin' it ...

checkin' out the punches

you go girlfriend!



I only took quick snapshots of the cards and a few were out of focus! Here are the photos that were ok to post. I kept the design simple since we had a lot of ladies who were making 8 cards each.







If you want to join us for our Friday Night Craft Club just send me an email for the details ---> link in the side bar. I think our motto should be "the more the merrier!" All crafters are welcome, papercrafters, knitters, beaders, quilters, etc., ... just bring your projects and a snack to share! We'll craft the night away together!

happy stampin'
