Africa and a Thank You card!

As some of you know, my oldest daughter, Savannah and I are planning on going to Africa next summer to volunteer at an orphanage and school in Tanzania. We are both excited to take on this challenge, and for me it has been a life long dream. As part of our fundraising efforts for this initiative, I will be holding Christmas Stamp-a-Stack for Africa events! There will be 6 different dates to choose from. You will drop in and create 12 cards, 4 each of 3 designs. All materials, including envelopes are included. Light refreshments will be served. Cost is $25. This event will be suitable for even a beginner stamper! Please help us to make these events a success by choosing one date to attend, bring a friend, and help us out with this great cause! The dates for these Stamp-a-Stack for Africa events are:

Saturday September 12, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Saturday October 10, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Saturday October 24, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Saturday November 14, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Saturday November 28, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.


Saturday December 12, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Thank you for your help, and please tell your friends!

Now, onto a card! I really wanted to do a Thank You card to have displayed in my studio as part of my Fall display. I love the rub-ons that Stampin' Up! sells and in particular the Autumn Harvest pack! I just love it! For this card, I also used the Little leaves Sizzix sizzlit, and a texturz plate from the Stampin' Up! exclusive Backgrounds 1. To soften it up some more I sponged the cardstock with some Chocolate Chip. I find that I have been sponging most of my creations lately. I find myself going in spurts with various techniques and such...and then i move onto something else!
