Wow what a great day it turned out to be!!!!! we were so thrilled with the turn out and for the whole 2 hour event i reckon we did fantastically!
It is Sunday morning and i am sitting here still in PJ's just chilling and reflecting about the manic week it has been! i am still amazed at the response to my beautiful friend KERYN'S blog appeal and the kindness that all fellow card makers have shown by sending parcels full of cards to donate.
Yesterday went so well and i do know that the cards alone made £70.00 in 2 hours!!! we should know in a week or so the total donations that were made so i will make an announcement as soon as those figures are in.
I would like to share some pics with you, in particular one's of a very special little boy who made the day happen. Here is Cameron!!!
HERE IS CAMERON TOGGED OUT IN HIS ST.WILFIES T-SHIRT!

HERE ARE PICS OF ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL CARDS EVERYONE HAS DONATED!
ME, LOUISE (CAMERONS MUM), WENDY (CAMERONS NAN) AND CAMERON, BY THEN HE HAD DECIDED TO GET HIS FACE PAINTED!!!
Now that i have been part of a fundraising event it has inspired me to do one of my own so i am hoping to do one later in the year and make it Christmassy. Obviously i need to find out about it and run through more ideas but i would love to organise something with the help of my friends.
Cards that were left over from yesterday will be sold at future events and at the Wednesday care centre so every now and then i will be updating you guys on cards sale figures. Please also feel free to carry on sending any spare cards or crafty creations as each and every one of them will be sold and every single penny/cents will be donated to St.Wilfred's Hospice.
Thankyou so so much everyone. You have all totally restored my faith in people's kindness. I was telling everyone yesterday who would listen about how everyone has been donating their cards, also from all around the globe!!!
I would like to say a huge thankyou to all of these ladies so far;
KERYN, JODY D, BRENDA B, ANNIE J, SYLVIE, TERRY S, JODY P, JULIA D, CHRISSIE S, CLAIRE, ENFYS C, SUE CARRINGTON, JO B, SUE COOPER, JODY, DEBBY Y, CRAFTY CHRIS & TASHA.
I am so hoping that i have remembered everyone! please thump me if i haven't ok. Any future cards that arrive i will still be thnking them personally & in blog posts. I know the girls at SCRAP THERAPY are planning cardmaking days to which the owners Lee-Anne & Danny are organising so watch this space!!!
I will be updating again very soon.
Godbless to everyone.
Love & hugs Clare xxx
