I sold 33 cards at the bazaar!!!

Hello lovely kind peeps,

Thank you ever so much for all the good wishes you have been sending me for the bazaar.
which was a huge success. I managed to sell 33 cards out of 54 cards today which is the best sale I have had in all these years and I will continue to support financially deprived Indonesian children with their primary education.
So my count so far is a total of 85 cards for this year and with that comes the price to pay - tired neck muscles and some other health issues. I think I may need to slow down which is heart breaking really because card making is my passion and my life. And selling cards for charity gives me a certain mission and purpose in life which is extremely fulfilling. I have been making cards on a large scale since the past 15 years and it's effects are telling on me. Or maybe I need to simplify my style even more so that it does not increase the repetitive stress. 
Sorry for that moaning and groaning and now to this aperture card which is a repeat of the earlier one I made like this a few weeks ago. I think I went a bit wild with the flowers and have almost covered the aperture instead of showing it. Some of you asked me to make more of these and you were absolutely right - both the ones I made sold.

 Down below is a picture of my table - I took the picture so it is without me.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Love this white on white card Monica, the aperture partly covered with flowers is so effective! Your stand at the bazaar looks fantastic! Well done on your sales too :) I'd better get to bed as it's 11pm here now :) Cathy x

Hello Monica. Oh sweetie, your display is fabulous and I am so thrilled that you sold all those beautiful cards. So thoroughly deserving. You are so kind in helping under privileged children, if only they knew what a beautiful kind hearted lady you are. Its a real pleasure to call you a great friend.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx

Well done again! Monica. You are such an inspiration! Most of my cards go to a charity, but I never find out how much they have made, unfortunately.
Today's card is beautiful. I really love all your three dimensional flowers x
