Sparkle and Shine.....FMS262





I had a wonderful trip to Atlanta where I attended two Stampin' Up! events. Two of my favorite people on the planet - Brian King and Pam Morris - hosted a World Card Making Day Event.......



which included stamping, swaps, and fabulous presentations from these talented demos......

Pam Morris, Candy Ford, Lynn Kolcun, Shawn de Oliveira, Linda Heller, Kimberly Van Diepen, Susan Nygaard, Brian King

and also included some shenanigans....yes that's me trying to catch SU sponges in a trash bin on my head!






The following day I attended Stampin' Up!'s On Stage Live Event - another great day of stamping fun plus a sneak peek at the new Occasions Catalog and a chance to play with new products!  But the highlight of the day was the announcement of the #1 Demo in the US.....my amazing upline Mary Fish!  Before she had a chance to catch her breath Mary was then named the #1 Demo globally! It was amazing and oh so exciting!  Her talent, leadership skills and work ethic are extraordinary.......I am so proud of her and delighted that I have been along for the ride for the past 7 years!



Some members of the top 100:  Lisa Curcio, Amy Koenders, Frenchie Martin, Brian King and Mary Fish.



I love Jen Brum's sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I watercolored a background panel in shades of blue and attached a snowflake diecut cut from silver glimmer paper.  I let that beautiful diecut sparkle and take center stage!


Stamp Set: Banners for Christmas from SU!
Die Cut:  Northern Lights Snowflakes from SSS
Paper: Silver Glimmer, Watercolor and Whisper White - all from SU!

Linda so pretty! Love the sparkle.... and it looks like you had a great time! Wow .... the news about Mary Fish must have blown her away. I always marvel that she never had a workshop yet built such a huge business. Must be nice. .... do I sound envious? Hugs.

Well, that sure looks like a lot of fun! It's so nice that you got to see some of your stamping friends for a few days. And your card has got plenty of sparkly goodness. I love that snowflake border die cut.

Ooh that snowflake die is just gorgeous! But I'm trying to be good, so I'll put it on my wishlist and then try to forget about it for a while! Your card is amazing, Miss Linda, and I'm so glad you had a good time away.

I love the winter feel of the card! And your trip to Atlanta sounds great! Wish we had events like that in Germany.
