Come On, It's For Charity!

Last night a local music club held their annual charity event. My fiance and his friend were set to play on stage - they're a beautiful guitar-trumpet reggae/ska/blues duo - and I thought I'd get involved as well - you know, for charity.

Firstly, I was a slave in the slave auction, offering to give a craft class. Secondly, I donated 2 sets of cards to the tombola.

I made a set of 5 Christmas cards:

And I added a set of my summertime birthday cards:

I went a bit overboard on the packaging - but I don't care, because I love packaging.

The people who won my cards were over the moon, which put a smile on my face, and the craft class was won by a gentleman whose daughter is thinking about going on to art college - I'm really looking forward to that one. More news will follow!


  1. Your cards are beautiful, I love the way you have done your packaging!!!!! So pretty! :)

  2. lovely cards and packaging! Glad you saw the winners reaction, a bit of positive feedback. The class sounds like fun, and if they are all a bit arty you're half way there. Sounds likes a fun night.

  3. The packaging really does give "added value" - it looks wonderful.A great thing to do!

  4. Hey there... I think you did an awesome job... and yes I love how your package your handmade goods!!! cause guess what??? I just received mine... thank you dear...its beautiful and your rak goes so beautifully in my room.

  5. I love how you packaged your cards. So lovely.

  6. How gorgeous ... the packaging is half the fun isn't it. and I bet it went down a storm.

  7. Hi Cheryl
    I won the Cards at the Kam Klub, they are gorgeous and I have shown them to serveral people. Now, absolutely no promises that this will work but it is worth a try. I have shown your cards to a client of mine who may order some as their Christmas cards. Normally they use UNICEF or similar but are will to support a local Artist. I'm on holiday next 4 weeks but get my email from Lindley and hopefully !!!!!
