World Card Making Day 2011

Sorry I saved this blog post instead of publishing it last week - duh!!!

Wow, we had an even bigger and better World Card Making Day this year on Saturday 1 October. It is the 3rd one that I've hosted and every year it is fine-tuned a bit, I think it is almost perfect now. The first people arrived at 8.45am and left at about 6.30pm as we ran a little late with the workshops. We had a super day jam packed with exciting workshops, delicious lunch and tea and great creative company, lots of lucky draws and donations for everyone!

This is a photo of the pile of stash that awaited everyone at their places at the table when they arrived. The participants received the following donations: Lindt chocs from Woolies, a 200g slab of chocolate and a P.S bar from PnP, Spices from Flavorite, offcut paper and UHU gluestick from Deckle Edge, a super mixed pack of goodies from Scrapbook Factory Shop and Power Pritt gel from Henkel, these items were organised by Sandra Fullerton, thanks Sandra. We also received - a beaded tealight holder from Sharon Byrne, notepad, pencil, punch, calendar, paper clips from Sue, homemade yummy biscuits from Lynn Cupido, pack of ribbon, serviettes and flowers from Joyce. I organised donations of ribbon from Unique Global Textiles, ribbon, sequins and beads from Beadazzled, flowers, ribbon, pearls and paper from Simply Creative and Omo liquid detergent. I donated bling, pearls, ribbon and lace for everyone as a thank you for joining us on the day.

There were also plenty of wonderful lucky draws valued up to R500. These were donated by:
Gail Grant - 2 mixed bags of goodies,
Corinna - Upikit stamp set and flowersoft,
Amanda Harrod - 4 gifts containing: embossing boards, DVD, PSX stamps, embossing folders etc,
Sharon Byrne - printers tray filled with brass charms,

Thank you to everyone for their contributions to the day! I will be sharing the day with you in blog posts over the next few weeks.

Enjoy your day!
