Bells and Boughs & Stampin’ Out Hunger Event.

Good Morning Everyone,

This past Saturday I did and event called Stampin’ Out Hunger with some of my Stampin’ Up! Team Members. It was a fabulous event where our customers got to make seven projects, have a catered lunch and win fabulous prizes. Part of the admission was to bring canned food that we collected for the Second Harvest Food Bank. In addition to that we had many, many raffle items that brought in over $650 for the Second Harvest. What a great feeling to know that we as a team helped put food on many tables for the holidays.

Here is the card I did for the event. I used the bells and Boughs Stamp Set and Sahara Sand Cardstock with The Deck The Halls DSP and our fabulous Always Artichoke Seam Binding for the Triple Bow Ribbon. I of course used my Magic Bow Maker for the Bow. I also used some of our flat pearls for the accent. I hope you like it.

My friend Jimmy airbrushed a Fireplace for us on black fabric to hang by our tree. Under the tree are the Door Prizes. Can you tell the tree is decorated with Snowflakes from our Snowflake Die? We glittered them up with our Fine Cosmos Glitter. Oh boy were we ever sparkly!!!
