Thank You ReNee

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator there is lots of support and help we can take advantage of to run our business. There is a Business Development Program that Stampin’ Up! offers, and I joined this. My BDA is ReNee, and I love working with her. I always tell her she “kicks my butt in the nicest possible way” as she helps me set goals and be diligent in my business.
I got to meet ReNee face to face at OnStage, so I wanted to make her a card to let her know how much I appreciate her help.

Happy Birthday to My Sister

Yesterday was my sister Patrice’s birthday, and her son’s decided to surprise her with a dinner of 35-40 of her closest friends and family! It wasn’t a milestone birthday, because they figured that would never surprise her, but it is always fun to celebrate your special day, no matter what the age. Here is the birthday card I made for her.

This Little Piggy Likes to Swap

Last week I was at OnStage Live in Orlando Florida. Oh I could go on for hours about how wonderful it was, but you really need to be there to fully understand it all. The people you meet, and the friends you make are one big reason why this is such an awesome event. An easy way to make new friends is by sharing swaps. We all make a bunch of one card, then swap them with each other. We all go home with lots of new creative ideas. Here is one of the swap cards I made.

Rustic Colouring

My card the other day used some of the Country Lane DSP, and a sentiment from the Contry Home stamp set, both part of the Country Lane Suite in the Holiday Catalogue. If you missed that card, you can see it here. Today my card uses some of the other stamps in the Country Home stamp set. It is a fantastic set with some great stamps that have a real down home country feel.

Being Thankful

Living with an attitude of gratitude, and being thankful for all that we have is the easiest way to get more of what we want in our lives. Each day I take some time to be thankful for something I have in my life that makes it wonderful. My friends, family, a great stamping business that is also a great hobby, my wonderful cat, a sunny day, and on and on. It is easy to find an abundance of good things in our lives if we just take the time to do so. My card today reflects that.
