A Year of Cards
On Saturday, a group of us went to Milwaukee for a stamping event called A Year of Cards. It is a fundraiser for a brain disease. I think it is called GLUT1. Any how we made a greeting card for each month of the year, an expanding envelope to put them in, and received an $85.00 package of stuff that was donated by Stampin' Up! Stampin' Up! donates tons of retired stamping stuff to charitable organizations and fundraisers each year. We received the Country Living Holiday Collection which was a wonderful gift. They also had a raffle for a Big Shot and My Digital Studio. People also donated gift baskets and gift cards etc that were raffled off. Going to this event was a birthday present from Lady Di to me. She made for my admission to the event, bought me a long string of tickets and treated me to Apple Bee's for dinner. What a wonderful day! We could put our tickets in what ever bag that we wanted to and I won this basket full of stuff from Creative Memories! Woo Hoo! Thanks again Di for such a great birthday present!
My keyboard went on the fritz today. Fortunately, about a year ago, I picked up a brand new one in the box, just like mine at Good Will for $4.00 so I was back up and running in about 5 minutes! Did you miss me while I was gone!?!?! LOL
I also went for breakfast on Sunday afternoon with Debi Wehby. We had a nice meal and nice visit. See ya later alligator!!!
