I am back from Leadership, and I am exhausted! My return flight landed in Colorado Springs yesterday at approximately 11:30 a.m., I stopped to get lunch on the drive home, and the rest of the day, I was in recuperation mode. I napped all afternoon. My husband and I flew to Orland together last Monday and spent a day in Epcot. I had never been before. It was fun, but I was a little disappointed in the fact that it appeared to be mostly restaurants and gift shops. But, we did get to see some of the other attractions like Mission Space, Spaceship Earth, and Soarin’. We were going to do the design a car thing at Test Track, but it began experiencing technical difficulties as soon as we got into line and it ended up being a longer wait so we skipped that one.
Hubby left Orland on Wednesday morning as my stampin’ friends began to arrive. Leadership was a whirlwind of activities with many new announcements mostly relating to Stampin’ Up!’s renovation of their compensation plan and events schedule since it is quickly becoming a global company with demonstrators all over the world.
I left Orlando exhausted, excited about all the new changes, and loaded down with a lot of free product from Prize Patrol and give a ways. I am anxious to get into my stamp room.
Today I am posting the card I made for our team swap along with a gift cardholder I made for my roommates. A word about the card: the sentiment is done in Early Espresso Embossing Powder. I used this color because the Soft Sued ink the rest of the card is done in didn’t appear dark enough. It is stamped on white vellum. Before I stamped the fern design behind the sentiment, I stamped off once. I also stamped off once before stamping on the Crushed Curry circle. Another thing you might want to know is I used Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack which are both in the Sale-a-bration Catalog. You get 1 item FREE from this catalog for every $50.00 you purchase. The gift cardholder was cased from one I saw elsewhere, but can’t remember who I should give credit to. Sorry. The hearts are embossed on vellum using the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Hope you like both.
Until next time…
