Alberta rocks!

I've had several emails from Lynnette (the Alberta coordinator for SAS4K) asking me to thank some wonderful crafters for their card donations. Here, in Lynnette's own words, are thank you's:
  • I need to thank Diane H. from Ontario for sending in 22 easter cards with matching envelopes and stickers to seal the envelopes with. Love all of the pretty colors she used on them.
  • On Friday I picked up 17 cards for birthday, all occasion and easter from an anonymous customer from my LSS. Thank you very much!  They were nice to pick up.  
  • On Friday I got 41 cards from a customer at my LSS.  The back of her cards says stamped with a smile by M.K. She gave the kids beautiful cards from Stampin Up.  There are encouragement cards, blank, thank you, love, birthday and fall thanksgiving  cards.  Such a real lovely assortment so thank you to her.
  • Gail L. from Alberta sent in 28 gorgeous cards that she has made.  They are for encouragement, thanks, a blank one, easter, mother's day and my first 3 father's day.  These cards are really sweet.  Gail L. also gave a monetary gift towards envelopes.
All of these cards will be going to Stollery Childrens Hospital in Edmonton. The kids are so appreciative! Lynnette has posted pictures of many of the donated cards on Facebook so please check them out!
