Well my Girls Night In event has been and gone. Saturday was a fantastic day and we raised $930.00 for The Cancer Council Queensland to help assist women with Breast and Gynecological Cancers. That was such a fantastic effort and far exceeded my expectations.
We started the day with registration and then got stuck in to our crafting. I had 3 stations with 10 ladies at each station making 2 cards then when we were done they all moved to the next station, in between I had raffles and lucky door prizes which were kindly donated by Stampin Up and Brumbys Parkside, then we had a yummy afternoon tea then sat down and did our final station. Once we were done each lady gave me back a card, which I am personally delivering to The Cancer Council Townsville so they can give out to friends and family of there patients to help uplift there spirits with a beautiful hand made card. I had so many wonderful helpers on the day, including my Mum Jane, Jeannette Evans my downline, Kerry my Mother-in-law and my 2 sisters-in-laws Kylie and Louella.

I had a couple of display boards up with some of my recent work which the ladies loved, this also helped everyone mingle as they stood around and viewed my work... I always feel a little worried, because we are our biggest critic :-). I had a few different items on sale that were also a hit, I had card and ink packs made up with previous In Colour colours (which went very, very quickly) also I had ribbon packs and Mar's famous Pickles.

Once again a VERY BIG THANK YOU to the 30 lovely ladies that attended my very first fundraiser for The Cancer Council.
