Pelotonia Fundraiser - THANK YOU!

WOW!

Has this been a whirlwind weekend!

On Saturday, we had the Pelotonia Fundraiser for my husband.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

While only a few were able to attend, several of you made a donation and your cards will be ready for you by this weekend.

Some of you donated via the Pelotonia page - and even paid the service charge so that 100% of your donation went to his account! Others of you stopped by, wrote a check, or just opened your wallet and made a donation!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Both Paul and I were so humbled by your donations. Thank you for your support!

Want to see what we made?

Well, we were originally going to make five cards with your $25 donation. Because 100% of your donation went directly to Pelotonia, some retired papers and ribbons were used. Including a really cute little note card set that was SEVERAL years old! But all stamp sets and inks were current.

Kept you in suspense long enough? Ok, here is what we made!

SIX CARDS
and a really cute little box!


We took a break from the card making to do a little tutorial/class on how to make the box too! I think that box was the biggest hit of all!

My friend Barb brought her granddaughter with her. Let me tell you - THIS is a future artist! We will see her name in lights!

Want to see what Barb's granddaughter did? First, I saw this envelope that she decorated:

And she just kept going! She was helping all of us! So, with her and her grandmother's permission, she displayed her cards for me to take a group photo. Check it out!

Didn't she do a nice job?!

I didn't even think to get a photo of Barb's cards and projects - but Barb did just as nice a job! Barb was smart enough to NOT put together her box and her pocket card too - she was going to take hers home and use them for the pattern. Smart lady!

A good time, for a GREAT cause, was had by all! Thanks so much for your support!

FYI - if you did not yet have a chance to donate to Paul's Pelotonia account, you still can. AND, I made a few extras of the card designs. For the first four people who donate, you will also receive the cards we made on Saturday. You will need to pick them up (or if you would prefer to have them mailed - let me know and I can send you a Paypal invoice.)
