Last week, I got a text from my friend asking if I wanted to participate in a fundraiser for Chatham Trades, a local community rehabilitation program serving the Chatham County I jumped at the opportunity to help support this community program, which has been providing vocational and developmental services for Chatham adults with developmental disabilities since 1980.
Last night, I put together some note card packages using water colored images from the Hey Chick Stamp Set. I thought these would be perfect for the rural community in which we live. I also made a coordinating box, which I saw on Sam Hammond's website. It's just the perfect size to hold my cards and envelopes.
I've provided a tutorial for the cards below, and will have a video on how to assemble the box tomorrow. In the meantime, if you're local and in the area on Friday night,
"You are cordially invited to participate in Stillwater Salon & Spa Grand Opening & Fundraiser on Friday, February 24th from 4pm - 8pm. The event's theme is a red carpet event with a fun photo backdrop and photographer for glam photos and selfie opportunities. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle and enjoy a variety of vendors."
See you there!
