For charity card sale last week



Hello bloggers,

I have had a busy and happy week as I had a card sale in my younger daughter's school ... The first set of cards was made by my Mum - she and her famous paisleys. But I marvel how she draws free hand. She made some tea light cards also.

The rest of the cards were made by me...

Managed to make 66 cards and am proud to say that 40 sold off! Am so chuffed.

Have another sale in my older daughter's school on Tuesday. We are trying to help the volcano tragedy victims with the sale proceeds. I know I don't make much money out my cards but it keeps me happy and it is my small way of paying back.

Have a nice day or evening where ever you are...

Love,

Monica

Oh Monica....these are lovely and your mom made some wonderful cards too! How very special you are to do the sale of the cards for the victims.
I think you did great on the sale and know you will again this coming week. You have made some beautiful creations.
I've been so worried about your safety and glad you're ok.

Hi Monica, you have an excellent mission! I run www.handmade-cards-ideas.com but due to busy schedule, I have not been able to produce that many cards I want for charity. I tried once with my stock of about 50 cards for a mission trip funding, but I guess cards are not sold that much?? Not very sure how much my cards were sold and how much it was able to fund it. I am inspired by your journey and will work harder to make more and get a better "funding" for charity.

Cheers!
