Best Wishes

January 2nd, has anyone managed to break their resolutions yet?? Here is a wish for the VERY best for you in 2008. I actually created this card to show at my last workshop, three of these 4 sets were retiring. I used Basic Grey Ink, CS and ribbon. A simple card, but works well for many occasions. I actually had my friend/stamping buddy/customer Charlotte in mind when I made it, she is getting married with Saturday in an outdoor ceremony. Now a January outdoor wedding might sound crazy if you live anywhere other than Texas, but if the weather reports are correct, she will be enjoying a beautiful 70 degree afternoon, should be lovely! Best of luck to you Charlotte! You will be a BEAUTIFUL bride!
Speaking of retiring, that last workshop WAS my LAST workshop. After 4.5 years, I will be leaving Stampin' Up! I will miss it in so many ways, and really appreciate all I learned, the opportunities it gave me, and the friends I've made though stamping(although we'll STAY friends, and KEEP stamping even if I'm no longer a demonstrator!) But I'm very excited to start working on new things, please pray for me in my new endeavors.
BTW, anyone want to adopt my one and only downline??? Bless her heart, she lives several states away and signed up under me before I even received my starter kit in the mail, and she's still working hard at it! We've never even met! (But how we connected and she became my recruit is a story for another time) Liz, I wish you all the success and happiness you so richly deserve! I'm still here for you with questions if I can help! Stamp on!!!

  3. Hi Mel! Best of luck in your future endeavors!

    BTW, DS wants to know the color of your stamp room. He's been begging for us to paint it blue and when he saw yours, he said "that's the blue I want" Ü
