Sold another 16 cards...

Hello sweet bloggers,

I sure have been missing in action - what a busy week but enjoyable nonetheless... On Monday there was a Diwali party in Aleeza's school where the teachers are ever so keen to showcase different cultures. I will try and share the photos soon to let you have a peep into all the fun we had. For those of you who are wondering what Diwali is - it is the festival of lights and it signifies the victory of good over evil. There is lots of eating, celebration and fireworks too.
Some good news to share - I sold another 16 cards to two kind friends today who love to buy my cards to help me raise funds for charity.


I have used light grey card stock for this card and the border has been on the top apart from some scoring. The sentiment is from Penny Black (I think) and the snowflakes have been punched using silver paper which was embossed as well. The ribbon is from my stash and I have gone over the embossing and sentiment with a silver Sakura pen.

This year, I have been raising funds to sponsor financially challenged primary schoolers. I am proud to say that with the kind support of all those who bought my cards, I have managed to donate enough to educate three children for the entire year. And lots of thanks goes to you lovely bloggers for all that you done for me - ever so thankful and grateful.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Much love,
Monica
