Hooray ... they are all done!!!


Hello my friends ... I'm hoping you are all having a wonderful weekend!! I have been trapped in my craftroom completing the 156 cards I need for tomorrow.



If by chance you haven't seen my past postings, I (at the request of DH) got involved in making cards to sell for the Harvest for Hunger project his workplace was putting on last week. Well it was a success ... we sold 17 of the 20 boxes I already had made up and took orders for another 26 boxes. With there being 6 cards/envelopes in each box for $10 ... that equalled $430. for the project and another 156 cards needing made.
If you count, there are actually 27 boxes of cards here .... one lady bought a box I had displayed that day but asked if I could add a little "sparkle" to it ... so I brought it home, added some stickles to the butterly as well as the sentiment and I think she'll be very happy with the outcome!!
Well, there you have it ... the reasons why I haven't been able to participate in many challenges this week!! We'll see how next week goes ...
Thanks for stopping by!
