Something to Celebrate !

I have something very special to me that I would like to take the time to share. I don't usually blow my own trumpet, but something happened last week that was so exciting.  

My upline, Sam, announced her yearly results for her team and I am so thrilled to tell you that I was named the No. 1 leader in her very successful team.

This is a huge deal for me, because when I joined Stampin' Up! three years ago, I only joined so that I could obtain wonderful SU card stock, inks, stamps etc at a 20% discount.  I never in my wildest dreams expected to head up my very own team, let alone drum up sales and acquire a fantastic and loyal customer base and earn bonuses along the way.

I have so much to be very grateful for - and more importantly to be proud of.  I am proud to be part of such a great supportive team, headed up by a very encouraging team leader.   

I am also really proud of my own very lovely and supportive team, Crafty's Angels which has grown steadily throughout this year.  They are a great support to me in many many ways.   

I count my blessings every day that I discovered Stampin' Up! and am having a ball enjoying my hobby, sharing projects and helping to inspire people to try the projects and to even join Stampin' Up! and more importantly for me, to join my own lovely team.  

So this is the perfect opportunity for me to say a big "Thank You" to my team leader Sam, my own fantastic team Crafty's Angels, to Stampin' Up! and to my lovely and loyal customers for everything.

It just seems appropriate to share here my latest project, a Thank You card.

These little cards were made using the gorgeous background stamp, Definitely Dahlia.  Using Whisper White card stock, I covered half of the image in Blushing Bride ink and sponged on some Melon Mambo using my sponge daubers for one card.  I used Pool Party ink and sponged on some Tempting Turquoise for the other.

A little shout out here to a fellow demo Anna Krol @ Anna's Stamping Cave whose recent Swap inspired my card.

I laser printed the sentiment onto each stamped piece of card and then foiled the sentiments in gorgeous complimentary shades of foil, using my Minc.  I am thrilled with the professional looking finish.

If you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I would love to hear from you.  

Oh and before I forget - all my new team members receive a little thank you gift from me when they join with me !

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
