World Card Making Day tomorrow 8th October - Come and support the Cancer Council


Just a quick reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday 8th October, is the day that I would love you to come to my World Card Making day event. I am using it to raise money for the Cancer Council. You've heard of the "Girls Night In" program that the Cancer Council runs each October... well I thought why not have a "Girl's Day In" and do what we love the most - make stuff! So I have cut up several different card designs for you guys to stamp and assemble (you can see some of the finished cards up above), and I am hoping that you will come along and enjoy some company and stamping with me. I will be asking for donations for the Cancer council - although I have suggested $10, you can make this amount any that suits you to make.

My aim is to raise at least $200. I have started the ball rolling by donating online myself at:

http://nsw.cancercouncilfundraising.org.au/personalPage.aspx?registrationID=56764

Its so easy to do online, and you are welcome to do it this way too. A receipt will be issued to you by email straightaway for tax purposes. Otherwise, bring a little cash with you tomorrow and I will be happy to organize a receipt for you. All donations are tax deductable. If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate, then the online donation page is the way to do it.

In case anyone is interested to know why I am supporting this cause you may not know that my Mum has Non-hodgkins Lymphoma which was diagnosed just before Christmas last year. So it's a cause close to my heart.

We will kick off at 10.30am tomorrow. I will have refreshments provided, but feel free to bring a plate if you feel so inclined. Email me at higgiz@bigpond.com if you would like my home address details - I'm on the NSW Central Coast. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

:-)



PS The two cards on the left in the picture above are based on the designs in the Simply Sent kit "Sending Happy Thoughts", whilst the blue one on the right features the "Short and Sweet" stamp set. It was inspired by a card I spotted on Jayne Mercer's blog - thank you Jayne for the inspiration. All these products are currently on special to celebrate either World Card Making Day, or SU!'s 20 year anniversary. Remember that I will be donating 10% of any sales from tomorrow's event to the Cancer Council too. And at 20% off these are really good value for you too. Enjoy!

Update on the WCMD - it went really well. I shared tea and cards with some great girls and really enjoyed the day. I didnt quite make my hoped-for target of $200, but Im not too far off, so I've kept it open for a bit. You never know!
