Had a very successful sale at the School Gala last evening. Sold about 2/3's of the cards I took and the school benefited from over $120. I sold cheaply as I really had too many on hand. I got there around 1.45 to set up and helped the other stalls get set up too.... The usual suspects.... White Elephant, Books, Home and Garden and the Used clothing. I was supposed to be outside next to the books, but it was very windy and all my cards kept flying away, so had to move inside next to the raffles and across from the Cake stall. Managed a quick look around before it started at 4.30~ then it was all go... hundreds and hundreds of people everywhere. Last year the Gala netted over $30,000. There is always lots of lovely food for sale too.... I had a hot ham sandwich - totally scrummy and the bonus was at the end of the night, hubby bought the half a ham leftover for $20.
Have been working on some special stuff....something to do with a special blog and a special post.... you'll have to wait till the 24th to see what!!!!!!!! so today's share is a little tag I made last Saturday and a mini card I made for Penny Black Saturday challenge.
My tag has some Hero Arts stamps and some Inkadinkado stamps and lots of distress inks and some Shimmer Spritz.
My mini card is only 4 1/4 x 2 7/8 inches although it looks bigger here... The presents are by Penny Black, PP by My Mind's Eye and sentiment by Hero Arts. Isn't great when stamps from many companies work well together. The challenge was "Presents and Gold"
And this week I was thrilled to find that my Thanks card made Spotlight Artist over at City Crafter challenge blog. Nice to get the recognition.
Off now to get the son's bed made for him and get myself ready to head out to some friend's place for dinner. I did some handmade chocolates.... using a mixture of dark and milk chocolate buttons and cranberries. Hopefully a nice combo. I have a few moulds I use to make them.
Hope your weekend is going well.
