So, is it just me or did it feels like this week just plodded along in one way and zipped by in another! I think it might just be me becasue I stayed home with my wee guy,Kieran on Tuesday as he didn't feel well...it kinda messed me up for the rest of the week! I also got a crazy idea in my head on Tuesday and when that happens then I become all consumed with it!!!!
So, do ya wanna hear my crazy idea! Well, I was reading Bev's blog and she was mentioning that her daughter sells her stunning cards to raise money for charity and it hit me! I knew exactly what I would do with all the cards that have been piling up in my craft nook! So, I packaged all my cards up on Tuesday when I was home with Kieran and decided that I would sell them for $5.00 and raise the $$ for the organization that I work for, The Canadian Hearing Society!
May is Hearing Awareness month and the staff in the office have been very busy raising funds for our Corporate challenge event that is on May 30th! I thought this would be the perfect way to help out the CHS Corporate Challenge team! So, I have raised about $115 in two days. Can you believe it!? Not bad, eh!? I am so excited!!! I will keep you posted on how I do with the fundraising, smile!
So about this card.....I made it following Caryn's fabulous sketch over at A spoon Full of Sugar this week! It is my first time joining the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge blog and I had a great time and will definitely play along again! I am quite happy with this card and I am just loving this Tilda she is soooo super duper cute!!! I stamped her on Prism Simply Smooth paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with my Copic markers.
I have been digging deep into my stash lately and coming out with some great papers to use! Like this My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus paper that I have been hording for years. It is just so pretty I didn't want to cut it but I finally did for this card! I used my new Kelly Panacci border stamps with Vintage Photo Distress ink and a few of those yum-o rose buds from the Dollarama (the dollar store)...just can't get enough of them!!! They look fabulous with a little Shimmerz added to them! So, now I just need to package this card up and add it to the sale box!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!!!!
