In the past five days a number of quite heavy parcels have arrived on my doorstep containing packets of "Heart Cards"
Due to other commitments, they remained unopened until today.

I am speechless ladies.......a total of 217 cards have now been added to the tally..!!!!
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated cards and postage stamps.
(Maybe you can suggest to your non-crafty friends they could donate packs of postage stamps if they would like to help out in some way)

But keep them coming girls......every card and stamp will find a home in either Queensland or Victoria.

Thank you again - I have been overwhelmed by the support that I have received from everyone about this appeal.
When you have an idea like this, you often think....
"Will people think it's a good idea too?";
"Will they participate?";
or "am I totally on the wrong track...???"
Well...again I have been proven right in my belief that people only have to be given an idea of how to help out and they will.

Thank you so much to everyone who has shown and interest in this current "Heart Cards" appeal.
It never ceases to amaze me the generosity of people when others are in need.
Another 45 cards hit my doorstep yesterday bring the total to 116 cards...!!!

LOTS of people have organised crop days to make cards which is fantastic and I am quite overwhelmed by the interest we have been receiving, not only here in Australia but from overseas as well.

I have had a request from a Victorian resident to include families from Victoria in the donations - some towns in Victoria have been up to 80% affected by the floods as that all encompassing wall of water moves down the river systems.
We are more than happy to donate cards to Victorian families so your cards will either be distributed to QLD or Victorian families.

If you would like a flier to distribute to others, please email me
and I will send you one.

Keep them coming girls......and keep checking back for updates too.


And a big thank you to those including postage stamps in their packs as well.

Well girls......again we are faced with a natural disaster beyond belief and imaginings. So many of our gorgeous Lounge girls (both past and present members) have been affected by the devastating floods that have hit QLD over the past three weeks but especially the Sth East corner over the past few days.

After losing everything we owned in the '74 floods here in Lismore, I am in the unenviable position of knowing just what it is like to lose all of your possessions; of being left with nothing but the clothes you are standing in.

Already people are opening their hearts and their wallets, making monetary donations and donations of goods and services and again I am asking the paper crafters of Australia to take part in the "HEART CARDS" drive.

We are asking you to make 10 cards - thank you cards, blank cards or a combination of both - pop them in a snaplock bag and forward them to me no later than FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25.
Feel free to pop in a pack of 10 stamps too if you wish which will be sent with packs of cards - another way to help out.

We will repack the cards into packs of 10 and then they will be forwarded onto an aid organisation (yet to be determined) in Queensland and then given to the families affected by the floods.

So....get creating girls......Very Happy
Scrap 10 cards - thank you, blank or a combination of both
(and please include an envelope with each card)
They can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.
Then pop them in a snaplock bag and send them off to

9 Windsor Court
Goonellabah NSW 2480

Feel free to post this information on your blogs/Facebook pages and if you would like a flier to post in the window of your LSS (with permission of the owner of course) just send me your email address and I will send one to you

A big thank you to everyone who decides to help out.
