Janice visited Arizona

My direct upline with Stampin' Up!, Janice Weightman, came from the cold of Chicago, Illinois to sunny Phoenix, Arizona this weekend.  She set up a meetup for the area demonstrators from her group, the Stampahowlics.  We met at "The Place" on Saturday morning, 11 of us attended.  We enjoyed sharing business ideas, swapping cards, and a delicious breakfast.

I was recognized for being in the top 20 for sales, in our group, for the month of February.
Here is a close up of the card from Janice
We love to swap cards any chance we get. Janice's meetup was no different. Here is the card I created to swap with the group.
I used the Incredible Like You Stamp Set and Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  The colors are Berry Burst, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful creative day.

Happy Birthday Roxann!

Friday night we celebrated Roxann's 40th Birthday.  It was a great evening with many of her friends, her mom and aunt surprised her with a visit from California, and a delicious dinner at El Encanto Mexican Restaurant.

I made a few decorations for the party.   

Here is the card I made for her.  I used the Sizzix Die, Serif Numbers, the saying from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and the DSP is Botanical Butterfly. 
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you liked the custom birthday decor I made for Roxann!  Have a creative day!

20 Year Stampiniversary To ME!

On January 4, 1999, I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Fast forward to 2019....and I am celebrating being a demonstrator for 20 wonderful years. Stampin' Up! sent me this commemorative pin to wear and a letter of congratulations.
I have meet so many people during this time, and formed lasting relationships with other demonstrators from all across the country. I have been through many changes in the past 20 years, color revamps, compensation plans, incentives and home office staff changes. I loved attending Stampin' Up! events such as Convention and Leadership, and now we know them as OnStage and Centre Stage.  My downline team is growing, I am very thankful for each of them and their hard work. I love the support I receive from this company.

I received this card from Donna Griffith, she is my area DDM at Stampin' Up! congratulating me for my 20 years.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed reading about my milestone.  Have a creative day.

Happy Birthday Ryder!

It is so hard to believe that this young man is 9 years old already.  He is so smart, caring, loving, a great big brother and a super awesome baseball player.  I started being his nanny when he was only 4 months old. I love spending time with him.  
Chocolate on Chocolate Cake made by his mom.

This is the card I made for him.  I used the Detailed Birthday Edgelits, saying is from the Better Together set, in bright colors.

He loved the Remote Control 360 we gave him for his birthday and shirt and shorts outfit.

Thanks or stopping by today to see what I've been busy creating.  Have a creative day!
