Another Chinese Auction basket of cards

I promised it wouldn't be three weeks before the next post! I wouldn't want anyone to contemplate another search party! I am most thankful for awesome blog friends like you!

During my blog absence, I put together another "basket" of cards for a Chinese Auction that was taking place at a benefit dinner. The dinner took place the same weekend my Aunt and Uncle were here. I felt making a basket was the least I could do since we wouldn't be attending.

This basket had a variety of cards much like the last basket. Since the benefit was close to the upcoming holidays, I included some holiday cards in this basket. Ready to take a look?

A wedding card!

Two birthday cards.
The owl and the frog were cut from the Create A Critter cartridge.
The cards measure 4x5 and 4x6...if that helps you picture the size of the cuts.

A get well card. Isn't he cute? Feeling ruff?  he he he
This card is a 4x5 card and the dog was cut using the Create A Critter cartridge.
I don't remember the size of the cuts on these cards. There was one day where I cut a bunch of things out so I would have some ready when it was time to make cards. It works great for making cards, but not so much when it comes to having information for a blog post. 

These two cards are blank on the inside. These two and the wedding card were made using die cuts made by K & Company. Those packages of die cuts are a great way to make cards! I have been waiting for them to go on sale at JoAnn's and then walk in armed with a coupon for an extra discount. YEP! I'm that girl!
The mouse in the tea cup stamp is from Stampin' Up.

Two winter/Christmas cards.
The snowman and cardinal are made by K & Company.
The paper is from a stack I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

A look at the inside of the winter/Christmas cards.

The Thanksgiving cards.
The turkey stamp is by Stampabilities.
The paper is from the stash (Do you believe me that I have a paper problem??)

The inside of the turkey cards.

All the cards were put in this bowl, along with some stuffer and then wrapped in plastic!
I hope the cards help make someone's day!
I also send well wishes to the person (and her family) the benefit was for.

One more look at the whole thing:

For those of you that read about the first basket...
Our friend has finished her treatments and has received good news from the doctor.
Thanks for the prayers and kind words!

Thanks for stopping by!
What kinds of things do you hope to see when you buy tickets for a Chinese Auction??
(we recently won a prize at one, that post is coming soon)
