Packaging cards today

I've been just overwhelmed with the generousity of our local (and not-so local) crafters! I've spent the entire morning today packaging up cards for BC Children's Hospital (here in Vancouver) and to send to Lynnette for Stollery Children's Hospital (in Edmonton). I think more time was spent ooh'ing and aah'ing over the various cards then was spent in getting them ready to send out! I have to thank the following people (whose names have also been added to the "Special Thanks" page) for their contributions:
  • Diane G
  • Jessie
  • Laurie
  • Margaret
  • Naomi
  • Rita F
  • Sherryl
  • Thanh V.
Each of you are helping to put smiles on the faces of some very special kids! Thank you!!!
