On Saturday, August 16, we had our Cards for a Cause Fundraiser to benefit the Concordia Academy Dance Team. It was truly a TEAM effort! A couple of nights before the big day, a few of my downline and two of my daughters helped me pack up the Cards To Make and the Cards To Go. We had boxes and boxes of completed cards which were all stamped and assembled by the Dance Team.
Finally, the big day arrived! Here's a picture of the Cards to Make Kits ready to be handed out and assembled by our guests.
Our welcoming committee . . . my daughter Kasey and two of her dance team friends, Grace and Mary Anna.
A big thank you to Pam, one of our Dance Moms, who took a ton of pictures to document the fun we had that day. Here's a picture of a group of ladies who loved adding extra glitter to their cards. Glitter truly does make us happy!!
Elizabeth and Jackie . . . mom and daughter card makers. Elizabeth is in my Stamping to Share downline.
Mary Ann and Paula ... fast friends thanks to Stampin' Up! Paula is a demonstrator whose upline lives in Washington. We all take care of each other in SU!

A big thank you to Dancer Mom Michelle, who provided a beautiful space for us to hold our event. We were at the Hand in Hand Christian Montessori School in Roseville, MN.
Sweet little Ruth was stamping with her Grandma, Dance Mom Beth. Ruthie made some beautiful cards that she is going to give to her mother. Beth provided some great bars that all of us enjoyed! Thank you, Beth!
Pam not only took a lot of pictures to document the day, but she also provided the coffee and tea! She and her husband have a wonderful tea/coffee company Devotea. They have a wonderful line of Tea Quilt Cozies that keep your tea amazingly hot!
As our day wrapped up, I presented a check to Michelle, one of our Dance Team Coaches. Over $2,000 to help the team with their expenses as they begin the 2014-15 Dance Season.
Madi, Angelica and Alexis are the Team Captains. They took a turn holding the check, too! Thank you to everyone who participated in any way to help make this event so successful. You are truly appreciated!
And finally, a picture of me with my dancing daughter Kasey. She put in hours and hours of extra time to make this day a huge success. We could not have done it with out her!! Love you, Kasey!!
