Last week I went to the Stampin Up convention and one of the demonstrators there told my upline this story
"While traveling both to and from Convention, I had some pretty extreme mishaps (really, I couldn't make it up if I tried)! On my last flight, I had two exceptionally nice flight attendants, and I remembered that I always carry some 3x3 "Thank you for your great service" cards, and I gave each of them one. After opening the card, the one flight attendant told me that in 23 years of service, no one had ever thanked her like that. She took out a pen and wrote the flight number and date on it. I cried, maybe because of the sheer exhaustion from my trip, but more probably because people need to be thanked with even a small card. Ladies, what we do, MATTERS!"
That story sparked me to do the same. I always send cards out to those who need them but this act of kindness had never crossed my mind. So this is one of the many cards I will have with me to say thank you to those who are bring back nice.
Stamp: Work of Art, Watercolor Thank You (Stampin Up)
All of my stampy peeps have heard that I got a new stamping studio. I waited for three years on this to happen and shame on me for not posting any pictures of it because it is pretty darn awesome and this is where I will be holding my monthly classes as well. I have plenty of room and can seat up to 18
Here are a couple pictures, just picture a big TV in that vacant space because thats what is going there eventually.
I am back from Stampin Up convention and I am excited and have some goals to meet so with that said I am finally going to have some classes in my awesome craft room that the hubs finished for me. So stay tuned here and my Stampin Up site for class info.
Whether you're a seasoned stamper, a beginner or have never stamped in your entire life these classes are for you. I will also offer these to my online stamping friends, I will have a hostess code for the class and if you place an order using that hostess code I will mail you the kits. And there will be door prizes for all.
this card uses two different sets and other supplies from Stampin Up you can find which ones they are in my supply list below.
Instead of just die cutting the birdhouse of of card stock, I decided to cut it out using watercolor paper and then used my watercolor paints to color it, I love the weathered affect it has by doing the watercolors.
