Christmas Cards for Charity!

I am so proud of my friend, Preet! As I am writing this, she is out walking... walking to train for the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in November. Her goal is to raise a minimium of $2,300 for breast cancer research! WOW! Preet works full time (sometimes works TOO much :-) ), has a beautiful family, including her two amazing children (Hi Anthony and Shifali!!!), is working on her Masters Degree, and somehow finds time to train for the 3-Day and plan a huge fundraiser!

On October 10th, Preet is hosting the Save The Boobies Fundraiser (it's okay if you giggle). Several of our friends are setting up tables to sell Avon, Premiere Jewerly... an Indian Restaurant is donating delicious food, and people are making crafts to sell/raffle all to raise money for this cause! I have several fun cards/crafts I will be sharing here over the next few weeks as my friends and I get together to Create for the Cause!

Okay, so onto the fun stuff! Here is a set of Christmas Cards that will be for sale at the Save The Boobies event (hehehe, I just like saying it)! I used the Greetings Card Workshop from the Wishes Book (pg 110) to make 16 Christmas Cards out of one sheet of B&T Paper (from the Creative Basics Jingle pack) and one sheet of Juniper cardstock and a half sheet of White (plus card bases, of course). I jazzed them up with stamps, glitter, brads, etc.

Close ups: These use the December Word Puzzle stamp sets:

Mixed it up a little and used Ms. Holiday Cheer (no Ms, but the other stamps are so cute, too!)

Have a great weekend everyone!

You should sell of Etsy- or to your leetle seester who doesn't know how to make cards.

And yay for good causes- Hugs to all participating!

What a great idea. I need to make some cards for CFH-Cards for Heroes. This would be a good workshop to use. Thanks for the idea. I hope your friend raises the money she is working toward.
