Some cards from the 'Girls Night In' fundraiser

Last Saturday night a few Stampin' Up! demonstrators and myself hosted a 'Girls Night In' fundraiser and we are pleased to announce that we manged to raise $2,035 from the event. This amount does not include the sale of the pens and badges, which would amount to another few hundred, as it was a very empty box of product at the end of the night. So thankyou to all who attended and helped to make the night lots of fun as well as raise money for this worthwhile cause.

Now here a few of the things the girls got to make. Seven cards and two tags were made by all. Some were very simple, while others included a few extra steps, but with all of them we included some ideas of how you could dress up the cards at home if you desired.

These tags were quick and simple, using the Winter Post stamp set, but you could use them in lots of ways. I made mine into xmas cards with a silver backing, clear embossed with Polka Dot and added some flowers, pearls and lots of glitter.

Oh, and I had to use one of the silver hodgep0dge frames, just love these!

Another card we made was this Inspired By Nature one using chalks and versa mark.

This card is easily dressed up with some glitter, a greeting and a flower.

I love the Circle Circus stamp set and this card uses it as a flower motif.

And it can easily be dressed up with a little bling.

(This is actually the card my mum made on the night.)
Thank you to everyone who came and helped to make the day a great success. I enjoyed seeing so many friendly faces, and was quite overwhelmed by the kind and caring nature of you all.
