Queen of Hearts CASO Crop fun!

 Had an amazing time today at the Queen of Hearts Crops fundraiser for CASO station!

As a vendor I had a lovely place to set up my goodies to showcase Stampin' Up! As well as a second table from which to 'destash ' some of my retired product that was looking for a new home to be loved in to make room for some newer product for me to play with!

 My $5 Blow Out sale table was a huge hit - between the selling off of retired merchandise, scrapbook kit sales and orders I was able to donate 10% from those sales and helped to raise an additional $63.00 for the CASO station!

In the Welcome bags I sponsored I had played a little contest game with the croppers that the first 3 people to bring up a complete project showcasing a few of the retired items I had shared in their package would win a prize!  

Jas was the first completed page - and she won our lovely Honey Bee DSP from the Sale-abration catalog.

 Our next winner, if my aging memory serves, was Connie and she won the Lily Pads DSP
The final entry from Anne offered the first double layout option and so she was awarded the Lady Bug Hostess set for her entry plus she even used her pillow box, ribbon and tag from the welcome kit! 
We also had two close contenders hot on the first threes tail with a card entry and a lovely single page layout!  My apologies I did not write down your names and now I am drawing a blank - however they were both lovely uses of the welcome kits contents!

Part of the festivities included Make N Take classes ... I introduced the croppers to the benefits of the card kits from Stampin' Up!

The Lots of Happy Card kit is a great kit for both new and avid stamps a like! Comes with 5 card designs and enough materials to make 4 of each card design. Or you can dissect your kit as I did and use some of the materials to make scrapbook layouts or alternative projects!

All 24 slots for the make n take were snatched up which made my heart so very happy! Everyone had lots of fun colouring the floral imagery! Water colouring with pencils and our blender pens is so relaxing! Stampin' and putting together the cards were a nice quick and simple process and I loved how some of the ladies were able to think outside the box and create cards with their own flare!

To add to the fun of the event I had hidden a 'winner' ticket inside the catalog in the Welcome kits and congrats to the lovely Heather for being the first and only person to find a winner ticket ... we ended up drawing names for the other two since no one had come forward to claim them!

 For those out of town who were wanting to create an online order to support the fundraiser please shop my online store and use the following hostess code below before February 29th. Thank you

Thanks for a great day to all!
