It's Fundraising Time - How To Get Inspired

Okay, I am getting all set up for round 2 of Fundraising for Kid's Camp at Church to help kids go to camp this summer. So far I have made approximately 80 cards... only 320 or so to go. How do I keep inspired while making cards? I hang my cards up around me on strings so that it seems like I have made hundred's of cards already ~ when I have actually only made about 80 - LOL. I don't know why, but it makes me feel like I don't have as far to go.
The last two cards I made are fairly simple though I used a concept I am not prone to using - mixing different patterns of paper together. I have seen this more and more throughout the web ~ there are some amazingly talented people out there! I have just started using this technique and I'm not too sure about it yet.
I also used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to form a simple layered card. For the blue card I used "Glorious Gift" SU Stamps for the flowers, Sentiment "Michael's Clear Acrylic $1.50", SU Stampin spot Bordering Blue.

Happy Creating!

Wow - what an amazing project to undertake! You're nearly a quarter of the way through! I thought 100 for Christmas was enough. I hope it raises enough money for the camp.

I have had a wonderful time reading through February. Your faith really shines through. Thank you for sharing about your post partum depression - such a personal thing. I watched a friend go through it for about 8 years, but she did bond with her children straight away. Occasionally she suffers from bouts of it now, but I have learnt to recognise it, and prompt her to return to medication. I think it's hard to recognise it in yourself.

Take care, Ros
