Festive Charity Event.....Update

Just before Christmas, myself, along with some of my crafty friends set about raising money towards the new Cystic Fibrosis unit at the Nottingham City Hospital.  Even though we were still in November and on a farm it had a very festive feel about the day!

My make and take was a very simple tag with snowflake stamps and Christmas sentiments.  Including an easy masking technique to create a 'clean' area for the sentiment, everyone's efforts were great, especially from the children who had a go.  I was rather pleased to get one of these tags made by my nephew on a Christmas present last week.

Clare from The Craft Studio did shimmery, shiny Christmas card make and takes - with real fairy dust!  Lots of lovely angelina fibres, sequins and glitter.  What more could you want on a Christmas card?

Extra materials and kits to take home were available for both tags and sparkly Christmas card make and takes from Sticky Tiger Supplies.

Make and takes by Sarah at The Sarah Manton  were Christmas tree baubles. These were made from strips of paper and were really effective - unfortunately I never got time to make any!
April showed off her chrochet skills with her stall - April Marie Textiles and demos.  The little chrocheted robins were so cute. 

Dell had a stall selling crafty bits and bobs and jewellery etc. and of course there was cake to buy - the busy stall run by David.  There was also a jewellery make and take, raffle and a crafty lucky dip.

Thanks to everyone who turned up on the day to spend money and help, donated things to sell and raffle off, gave us cash because they couldn't make it, baked cakes, scones and biscuits............we raised the grand total of £438.36.
