Educational Trip to Washington DC, and we need your help

Okay, I'm calling out to all my crafty friends. I need your help. Our holiday card & tag packages went over so well, I'd like to make a card in the drawer package. This would consist of cards for the year (ex: graduation, mother's day, father's day, birthday, halloween, christmas, sympathy, baby shower, wedding, thank you, etc.) I'm hoping to make 10 packages (more if I can get more people) that contain 8 cards and these will be a fundraiser for my daughter's educational trip to Washington DC. Here's where you come in I'd like to get 10 people to help make cards. It should be easy, make (1) card and then you copy it 9 times. If I get 16 people I might be able to make 20 or so sets. :o) You can email me here if you have any questions or want to help and tell me what you'll be making. :O)

 I have been very busy for this upcoming holiday season.  I'm in a tag swap with Kyoko and been getting some really nice tags to use for the holidays.  So, if you're my partner you'll be getting these cute little ones.  I made all of mine at the same time.  This way I know I'll never be late.  :o)  I've also been participating in another 3x3 card swap with Karen  and this time around we did holiday gift tags.  These are the ones I sent to her for the swap.  It consists of 15 cards and you 15 different ones back, including one of your own.  I love how the reindeers turned out.  Can't wait to see everyone's tags.  :O)

 On my screen they were right side up, however when they downloaded they got turned sideways.  There cute little owls are from Tia my tag swap for August.  They are totally sweet.  Thanks, Tia.

These are the cute tags that I received from Pamela.  She was my tag swap for September.  They are sooo cute and I love the reindeer.  Thanks, Pam.
Well, this is what has been taking all of my spare time.  My daughter is going on an educational trip in 2012 and we have all ready started fundraising.  This is what we are doing.  We've made cards, 3x3 cards, tags & gift card holders and we'll be selling them at some craft fairs. 

 You get (10) items for $10.  I have (10) extra packages made to sell on my own, and if you'd like to contribute to her fundraising event, let me know.  I can meet you or mail it to you.  It will be a mix of both card sets that you see to the left.    I did have some help  from some special friends.  Thanks to Fran, Kyoko, & Linda.  Without you I couldn't of put together (400) cards.  It was a massive job. 

And, last but not least, my tag swap for October, from Kyoko.  You have to love the angels.  They are so adorable.  Thank you Kyoko.  I love them.

OMG!  I can't believe it's been 3 months since I posted something.  Time sure does fly.  Here is the card that I made for Teri and this is the one she made for me.  We were OCS for the month of September.  I love the card.  It is beautiful.
The multicolor card is the one I made for the Island Girls Social, back in August.  I actually won something.  It turned out really cute.  I had a great time at the social got to make new friends, and put faces with blogs that I visit.  Everyone is so talented.

I'm bad, but I'm really late on my October OCS to Mcclain.  It will be in the mail on Monday.  I'll take a picture when I finish.

This beautiful card is from OCS for November Jodi.  I love it. She is so talented and now I have to bling up my card that I'm going to send to her.

Okay, this is my last post for the night.  I promise.  :O)  This was drawn by by daugther.  Who also LOVES the Twilight Sagas.  I told her about Bernice's challenge and this is what she came up with.  It's a hand drawn card.  She did a great job. I hope Bernice gets to see it.  I can't figure out how to upload it to her site. 

I just wanted to send a special Thank You to Teri S. for being a wonderful hostest for the Island Girls Social 2.  Joy from Tamiko's had all her goodies there and believe me we all bought something.  Good thing I had a buget.  I got to met a lot of wonderful people. They are all very talented.  And, Linda & Kyoko thanks for inviting me.  I had a great time.

Yes, I'm behind in posting all of my OCS's for May, June & July.  So here I go:  The sideways bunny one is from Margarita.  She was my OCS for May.  Those bunnies just make you happy.  Love it!  The middle one is from Joy.  She was my OCS for June and she has tamikos.com.  She does some awesome work.  You have to love this card.  It makes you wanna go to the beach.  I don't know about putting on the bikini, though. And, the last card is from Colleen.  She was my OCS for July.  Love this it's so cheery.

This cupcake card was the card that I sent to Colleen for our July OCS.  She did email to say she liked it.  :O)
Here's a project I've been working on.  These are wine cutting boards.  You can use them to serve cheese & sausage or other pupu's when you have guests over for a few cocktails.  Or heck, just when you like to kick back and pour yourself a tall one.  You know that happens every so often.  The geen one on the right was made as a birthday present for my bf Beth.  :O)  It will go perfect into her new home.  The blue one on the left was snagged up by Kyoko for her friends house warming party.  :O)

This is my 2nd opportunity to participate in the 3x3 card swap with Karen.  She's blogs with my bff on Little Per Studio.  Look at all the cool little cards I got.  I was so excited to get this in the mail.  :O)  So, now we're doing a Christmas theme 3x3 swap.  I can't wait.
