4-H Cards for a Cause

My niece Stephanie is going on a service learning trip to Alaska with 4-H friends this summer. She needs to raise $900 for travel expenses so leading a Cards for a Cause was something I could do to help her.

Each guest created 3 greeting cards featuring Sale-a-bration products. The taco truck card was one of the designs featuring the Tasty Trucks. The other cards used the Hey, Chick stamp set and Sale-a-bration Pretty Pocket Card Kit.

I can tell that this is my card sample in the photo below because the taco is topping side down! I did not notice I stamped them that way until someone pointed it. The reason I stamped them that way came to me later. I worked in the More 4 deli in River Falls during college and we fried taco shells for Taco Tuesday each week. They dried upside down over night. So after 4 years of frying, this is how my mind thinks tacos should look. haha!


There was one set of Cards to Go to assemble so Stephanie and Lindsey worked on that while we cleaned up. Lindsey is watercoloring the chicken from the Hey, Chick stamp set.


The rest of the crew was my sister Wendy, Stephanie’s Mom, cleaning up the card station and my Mom cleaning up the refreshments in the back. Of course Stephanie was there too! She took the photos. We did not get a group photo so we will have to settle for the stealth mode photos.


We raised $240 towards Stephanie’s goal of $900.


Thank You to those that attended and had a great time stamping while helping Stephanie!

I love to create 3-D’s…maybe it is because I know a treasure will be tucked inside…maybe it’s because I can use embellishments that have thickness…I know it’s because I can use my coordinating Stampin’ Up! products to make the design session easier and presentation look professional.

Here is what I am working on for an upcoming event where the ladies will appreciate the pampering. Our clear tiny treat boxes will contain the inspirational messages with fun touches.


Assembly line…


I decided to share my hoarded stash of sparkly embellishments which add the perfect touch to the box top. Pretties!


These will be the dinner party favor. I hope to share the table setting after the event. So stay tuned!

Consider creating in sweet sugarplum today. It will delight your senses!
