My 16 year old daughter, Emily, is putting together grab bags of cards to sell as a fundraiser to help cover her costs for her big volleyball tournaments.

My contribution is gifting her the cards.  Her contribution is the sorting, packaging, shipping, tracking inventory – all of that goodness!

This is our 3rd time doing this, and I know many of you have asked when it was happening again because we usually do it in the end of summer, beginning of fall.  But with her school volleyball schedule, it just wasn't even possible.

But this young lady has kept a perfect GPA (she's a junior), she has played on varsity at school all 3 seasons so far, her school team placed 2nd in state, she was named to the all tournament team, ranked in the state, and ranked first team for district.  She's moved up with club to a national team and is really getting into her groove with that team right now.  Which is so exciting to see!  She's taking 3 dual credit courses again this semester and 2 AP classes.  

We are so impressed with her and her drive!  It's incredible to the goals she has set for herself and how she is reaching them.

From Emily:

Hi everyone!  Thank you so much for considering being a part of this fundraiser.  I love playing volleyball and I love that so many of you love that I play and have helped to support my journey.  

I have sorted through all the beautiful cards that my mom has made to make sure there aren't any duplicates in the stacks.  

My mom is so sweet to donate the cards to me!  

Now is your chance to get some of these cards for yourself while helping to support me as a teenage female athlete.  

The last two times we offered this, we sold out of them.  When that happens, my fees for my two big tournaments are covered.  That allows me to focus on being a student first, and athlete second.  I can keep my grades way up and still be active in the sport I love.

Some of you have asked if I will continue in college.  And I don't have an answer for that.  I am looking at all levels of schools to go into mechanical engineering.  It truly depends on if the right school for me has a team that I feel is a right fit for me.  

My mom has encouraged me to keep all options open, so I am. 

I greatly appreciate you reading this far.  And if you would like to help support me, and get some great cards at the same time, that would mean the world to me.

Have a beautiful day, 


Each $25 grab bag will contain:

  • 10 hand stamped cards
  • a fun mix of cards and occasions
  • no duplicates!

These are cards from projects I have featured on my blog, in Stamping Family, and also from Card Sketch of the Month.  The picture above is an example of some of cards included.

Emily has already packaged these and included a personal message with each.  They are ready to ship out!

Because pricing of international shipping is completely nutter butters, we are only shipping to the US right now.  There is a $3 shipping fee – it's actually costs $6, but I have offered to cover half the shipping charges.

You can order more than one set!  

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! These have sold out!!!

Thank you so much for your support with our amazing kiddo!  XOXO, Meg and Matt
