Cardmaking Day for Rwanda

My son Joel was picked to be one of 21 students from his school to travel to Rwanda with World Vision in September. They will help out at one of the World Vision projects and meet our new sponsored boy, Moise; visit the genocide memorial and see gorillas in the wild.

Sounds like a great cause? I'm running a day of crafty fun to raise funds for this trip on August the 10th (which is now sold out) and we will make 8 cards in all sorts of styles. Here are some sneak previews of the cards and the raffle prizes you will have a chance to win!

#1 The exploding butterfly card: 
What's more fun than opening a card and butterflies and hearts pop out?

#2 The poppy card:
Colour in some laser cut flowers with Twinkling H2Os.

#3 The Prima doll card:
Do some paper piecing and rip up an old book!

#4 The hot air balloon card:
Make a cloud background and use some unusual supplies to build your balloon

#5+6+7 Something for the men:
Men are so hard to make cards for! Make a birthday card, complete with shakerbox and a cowboy card. Complete the set with a wallet card for giving cash and gift vouchers:

#8 Notebook:
It's not really a card, of course, but you'll find this so handy and it's great for making handmade Christmas pressies for all your friends! And you have the chance of winning several packs of 10 mini calenders in the raffle prizes. 

Prizes prizes prizes!!! 
Would you like to see the wonderful prizes that have been so generously donated by:
