#creativerelief, Thanks to all the generous folk who supported this.

Saturday June 13 saw 26 participants making cards and having a great afternoon raising funds for the Western Qld Drought Appeal.Many of the ladies had never tried card making but everyone had a lovely afternoon and went home with 4 cards they had made themselves. These were the cards I designed.


Each table had a Stampin Up demonstrator from my little team guiding and assisting, and participants moved from table to table working at their own pace. My beautiful Mum and her cousin came up on the train from Nambour to Rockhampton to help and they ran the Crafternoon Tea buffet superbly.

Stamping Up donated a box of goodies which I was able to make into loads of prize packs, and lots of people donated other raffle goods for the Lucky Door prizes, a multi draw and a silent auction. Friends donated time and ideas to put the kits together. I put the word out to other Demos and received a swag of ready made cards which we sold before and after and on the day. (Yay for SU demos!) Others made straight cash donations. Every little bit helps.

Funds are still trickling in but I'm so pleased to say that we have raised over $1800. Thanks to everyone who assisted.  I couldn't have done it without lots of support.

And would you believe there is some rain falling in the west? It won't be enough to break the drought but hopefully it will lift the spirits of those who have been struggling for so long.
#lovetothewest.

Thanks so much, Please keep them all in your prayers,
Liz
