Mini Gift Card and HUGE thanks!

Hello friends

Zip, zip super quick!  A tutorial today for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 
on how to make a very quick mini gift card. 
I wanted to show various techniques but also how their amazing 3D Foam Pads 
hold weighty embellishments too! 
Step by step photos are over on their blog and a place to leave comments... :)

It is thank you time.
Firstly for the lovely response to the new Charity Kit launched yesterday.
I am so pleased you like it and the idea that it can be added to with future recipes has 
been well received. Kits are going out daily, my family is helping!
I am awaiting delivery of some further chipboard and the suppliers have promised 
it will be here by tomorrow. I like to turn everything around as quickly as possible - 
(I know I'm always impatient when I'm waiting for new crafty goodies!)
So grateful to those of you have already purchased.

Now, HUGE thanks to Elaine Wainwright.
Elaine has gone above and beyond in fundraising for Ronald McDonald House on behalf of Elliott. She did Race for Life recently and this week she held a fundraising event in her workplace
selling her handmade cards. 
 One of her work colleagues, Adam also baked Vimto cupcakes!  They sound yummy.
Overwhelmed by the kindness of this amazing lady.  
I would be lying if I said we didn't have very difficult days at home, 
the amount of medication and daily injections take their toll on Elliott 
but gestures like this and helping create the kits lift him up high.

Sending much love to you all my wonderful friends.

Hi Christine. What a lovely gesture and amazing cards. Love the sound of Vimto cup cakes.
Todays tag is oh so cute. Is that burlap on it? If so do you know where I can buy it from? The only sort I see here are in large rolls and what I need are some fat quarters.
Love and hugs to Elliot.
Love Val x

Well done to Elaine for her kind gesture. Her display of her cards and cakes looks great. Hope the rest of the staff dug deep into their pockets. Hope Elliott is bearing up still despite all the setbacks and painful injections. He such a brave lad. Janice xx

Hi Christine, how lovely of Elaine to go the extra mile and beyond to help other people. As you said its this kindness that will carry Elliot over til the bad days lessen. The gift card is a great idea and hope to try it for one of my special boys on his 8th birthday later in the month.

Hi Christine. Love the tag. Well done to Elaine, and her colleague, for going the extra mile. Sorry that you all have some bad days, it is ok to get sad, mad, depressed etc. just for a short while, but hold on tight to the good times and remember that it will get better. Take care.

Maggie said...

I am so impressed. What a lovely lady Elaine must be to have taken your story to heart and then done this to help. Extraordinary kindness and generosity indeed. Just goes to show hom much Elliott's troubles have touched all our hearts. A real boost for the day xxMargaretxx

Elaine said...

Hi Christine, its a pleasure to help out, i know what you and the family are going through. We had a lot of support many years ago so its nice to give something back. I wish from the bottom of my heart I had a magic wand. Love the card, think I need hessian now xxx

Hi Christine

Glad the response has been good for your charity kits. I shall have to wait until we come back from Switzerland next Sunday before I can order. If I'm not in to take any parcels they always seem to go astray. We to have difficult days at home, especially after a visit to the Churchill Hosp in Oxford. at least we are lucky to have a specialist cancer hosp on our doorstep so to speak.

Teresa said...

What a wonderful thing to do for Elliot, he is such a lucky young man!! It's wonderful to hear you share about all the wonderful people in your life too :)
Happy crafting to everyone!
