Winners are grinners....

Hello there craft lovers, today I thought I'd show you a couple of our winners from the World Card Making Day, we were so blessed with such wonderful prizes to give out which had been donated from Stampin'Up!, Catherine Baudains, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Vivi of Buds of May and a few items from my personal stash of goodies.
here is a picture of me presenting the large silent auction prize to Maureen who made the winning bid.

This is Sam presenting Sue with one of her many prizes, she let out the biggest squeal of delight when she won the big raffle prize and everyone just got so caught up in her excitement. Well done Sue!

This is me presenting the lovely Sharon with the first prize of the day, we had so much fun giving out the many prizes from the very generous Stampin'Up!

Pink sea part two...

Hello again and welcome to part two of our World Card Making day event to raise funds for The National Breast Cancer Foundation. We were blessed to have such wonderful attendees to our event and a couple of them brought along their very new little babies, My husband even had a cuddle of one of them and took him outside for a walk in the fresh air.

This picture is of my gorgeous daughter Elysia who very kindly gave up her one day off to come and help in the kitchen, I'm so blessed with a wonderful supportive family.

Here's a few of our lovely ladies taking a look and a few photos of one of our sample boards.
I have some more pictures and stories to tell you, so please come back for the next instalment.

A Sea Of Pink....

Hello there,
On Saturday the 23rd of October there was a sea of pink at the Kelmscott tennis club and it was made by some gorgeous people doing their very best to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The gorgeous pink cup cakes were made by Cassie, the family culinary skills don't stop there, her lovely dad Fred made some awesome curry puffs for the day too.

Here on the right is a picture of Ann, my very good friend and downline, she worked very hard with myself and Sam to make the day a huge success and most importantly full of fun.

This picture is of some of the lovely ladies who joined us for the day to make six projects , win prizes, eat, drink and have fun.
These pink goody bags were waiting to be picked up by each participant at the door, inside were all the necessities to make all six projects along with a few extra little bits and pieces.

The day was wonderful and from all the feed back we have had so far, everyone really enjoyed themselves and have expressed their wishes to do it all again asap. Well we will do it again, but not til next year when we have fully recovered from this one :-) I have a few more photos to show you and will upload part two tomorrow, so please come back to see the next part of our World Card Making Day event.
Thanks for visiting with me, lots of inky hugs from ....

more projects from this year's Stamp-a-thon.

Hello again fellow blog surfers,
I can definitely feel Summer on it's way, yet another glorious day in paradise! As promised, here are a couple more pics of this years Stamp-a-thon projects. This cute little milk carton was made by Makeesha and the stamp set used to embellish this one was 'Morning Cup'. I have to confess I'm soooo in love with this new milk carton die for the big shot. :-) This wonderful creation was one of the lovey Louise's, inside is a pocket each side for a gift card and message. Isn't it just a brilliant idea for Christmas. Well done Lou :-)
Oh well, I'm off to do another load of washing and then onto more cutting of projects for the next big fun raiser. I know what you're thinking...I must be mad!!!:-)
Take care and thanks for stopping by today, lots of inky hugs from .....

Some projects From Stamp-a-thon.

Hello there people,
I'm sorry there has been a delay in my posting these pictures, I have had no Internet for two days, it felt like my right arm had been chopped off! Isn't it amazing how we all rely on our computers fro communication these days, I would never of believed that me of all people would be saying that! Oh well, here is a picture of the gorgeous little scrap album that Keesh deigned. Everyone loved making it and the new designer paper went with it really well.
This next creation was designed by the lovely Lou, I was so excited to see these stamps sets in our new catty and I think a lot of you were too. I especially love the extreme guitar man, as he reminds me of my hubby :-) Oh well, that's it for now, I'll be back soon with more, providing my Internet doesn't die again!
Oh by the way, for those of you came along to the Stamp-a-thon and really enjoyed yourselves, you may be interested to know that myself and two other demonstrators are holding a very similar event on October the 23rd, we have ten spots left. If you would like to come and join in the fun please contact me here: I look forward to hearing from you, lots of inky hugs from...

Stamp-A-Thon News.

Hello everyone,
I'm back from a very interesting holiday in Cambodia, where my hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, but I'll tell you more about that and show some amazing photos at a later date.
This post is to tell you a little bit about our Stamp-a-Thon event for 2010, which was held on the 4th of September. We had yet another wonderful day of stamping fun, while raising some much needed funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Makeesha came back over from Cairns to host the show as well as design three of the projects for the day, she not only designed, but cut her kits out for the day and brought them all over safely in her suitcase. Louise Ryan designed another two projects which were simply stunning and I did two also. So all attendees made 7 great projects to take home and lots of lucky people won prizes too. There was lots of food and refreshments on hand which was so beautifully presented by the wonderful helpers in the kitchen, Louise's mum, Keesh's mum and two of Lou's lovely downline too. We were also very lucky to have the gorgeous Ann Gerlach to help in so many ways on the day as well as in the build up to it. So a big thank you to all who helped make the day a wonderful one as well as a successful one. This is a picture of me with the star super woman who must have ever-ready batteries Makeesha :-)
Here's me with the most gorgeous Louise with a heart as big as all outdoors!

This is me with Ann, my ever calm and beautiful tower of strength. Thanks for your help Ann :-)

Here's a picture of just a few of the wonderful attendees, heads down and stamping their hearts out. I hope you all had as much fun as we did. :-)
Now for the news you've all been waiting for, DRUM ROLL PLEASE ........
The final tally of funds raised on the day is $5,476.93 So thank you to all those who came along and to those who made donations which made that sum possible. Makeesha, Louise and myself are very thankful to all of you, lets hope our contribution will help make the fight against this awful cancer a little easier.
I with the help of Ann and another fellow demonstrator Sam are holding another event on the 23rd of October to help raise some more funds for this wonderful cause.
Thanks for stopping by today and please visit again to see the projects which were made at this years Stamp-a-thon. Lots of inky hugs from...
