I cannot thank you enough Jodes for all the support, friendship and hard work that you put into this project too.
I would have given ANYTHING to be there when you handed them over to Vicki this morning.

And I want to personally thank everyone who supported me and this VERY worthwhile cause (especially Rondelle over at The Scrap Lounge who allowed me to use her site as a springboard for this appeal)
Little did I know when I came up with this idea that we would have such an overwhelming response from crafters all around Australia.
It was a true reflection of Aussie mateship, charity and "lending a hand to those in need" that saw such an amazing response by women Australia-wide to our appeal.

To the families of Marysville and surrounds - we hope that these cards will allow you to give a small token of thanks to those people who have helped you out during the past 12 months.
And our every good wish to you all for your continued healing and getting your lives back on track.
Bless you all

P.S. Keep an eye out here on the HEART CARDS blog for our next appeal for cards.
Coming soon :)


We are so very excited, I delivered these cards today to the lovely Vicki, secretary of the Marysville and Triangle Development Group. She was enormously grateful and they are having a community meeting this coming Sunday night, where hopefully you're gorgeous will be handed out to those residents who would like them.
In the end there where 86 packages of ten cards = 860, gorgeous, heartfelt cards.
We packaged them up in some cute cello bags, with a note and the heart cards sticker on the front - the note read:

From our heart to yours!
"HEART CARDS" is a project to help the families devastated by last year’s Black Saturday bushfires.
The project was the brainchild of “Shazz Pratten” who rallied her on-line scrapbooking, card making and paper-crafting friends to create “Thank you” cards. The idea being that when the time was right, those touched by the events of Black Saturday would have many, many “thankyous” to make.
Some 800+ cards and (almost) 12months later, we hand these over and that you know with them goes our love, hope and support for a brighter future.
Heart Cards can be found on-line at –

I hope the note reflects the setiments of all of our lovely card makers, without you this project would simply not have been possible. Your love and support is wrapped up in every single bundle!
Thank you!
