Celebrating success in my Stampin' Up team

When I first joined Stampin' Up as an independent demonstrator, I didn't think about building a team. Once I started though, I found helping, motivating and encouraging my team members incredibly rewarding. I would love to help you get off to a great start too so, if you've been thinking of starting a Stampin' Up business or would like to enjoy your hobby as part of the Stampin' Up family, why not give me a call for an informal chat on 01280 820593? Or click here to find out more.

WOW! I've just heard that there's going to be an amazing offer on for one week only! Between 25th November - 2nd December, you'll be able to get 25% off your starter kit when you join Stampin' Up AND you'll get 5% back on all your sales in December! That's on top of the usual considerable benefits too!

I'm always delighted when members of my team achieve their Stampin' Up goals and I like to mark the occasion with little cards and gifts. Today's bright card was made to celebrate a promotion. Come and see:

There's a real party feel about this stamp I think! It's from the Today and Everyday set on p.168 of the annual Stampin' Up catalogue and it's designed for colouring, so out came my blendabilities markers! Blending and shading is effortless with these beauties! Have you spotted the candy dots at the bottom of the card? I love having these in all the Stampin' Up colour families!

A Tangerine Tango panel brings out the zingy colours of the lanterns. I cut an aperture in it with one of the Deco Labels framelits - LOVE that embossed edge you get with the framelits!

I'll be linking this card up with CAS(E) this Sketch where this is the sketch:

Naturally I've been keeping my daughter up to date with all the puppy news. "If she woofs that she'd like to go to Manchester, do bring her up to visit me," said my daughter. I heard from her again yesterday. "Eva is such a clever puppy," she texted. "I can't believe she already knows how to sit, go to her bed AND run a chickpeas company!" This picture accompanied the text:

Have a wonderful weekend won't you. I don't know how much crafting will get done here but there'll certainly be a whole lot of puppy training! See you very soon,
