A huge thank you

See this wonderful pile of Christmas cards...


....this is the incredible response I had to the Great Ormond Street Hospital Appeal. I received over 360 cards from crafters up and down the country - I can't believe how many of you wanted to be a part of this and how generous you've all been with your time and cards. Thank you so very much - crafters are just the best!!

For overseas readers who may not know about Great Ormond Street - it is a famous children's hospital in London which helps children from all over the world. I have a couple of friends who are nurses there and it's wonderful to hear first hand about the amazing work they do.

Here are the cards all boxed up and almost ready to go...


When they get to the hospital they will be distributed throughout all the different wards and also the hospital's school so the children can write in them and then give them to someone special to them. Many of the children will be spending Christmas in hospital and I'm sure receiving one of these cards to use will truly brighten their day?

Thank you once again for your amazing support!
