Wahoooo --- It's Official!

Just got notification this week that I have officially earned the Grand Vacation from Stampin' Up! --5 days, 4 nights in FIJI for two!!!!!

Notified my girls this week and they text'd back to me, "we're packing our bags!" ... ha ha  Rick and I will be going next Spring.  Cannot wait!

I'd like to take credit for this, but I must thank my wonderful customers, my great Divas, and my awesome Divine Divas (downline) who all made this possible.  It was a combination of my sales and the successes of my downline that made it possible.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

I've been a little under the weather this week, but it's time to get back to blogging.  Here's another swap I'm making for convention.

This one uses Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant card stocks and inks.  The new butterfly set is Papillon Potpourri found on pg. 115 of the new catalog.  Also used is the new So Sorry stamp set (pg. 137).  This is an awesome set to have on hand.  While our swaps are only card fronts, if this were a full card there are great stamps to stamp inside the card such as "times are tough right now" or "for the loss of your beloved pet" and more.   I was sad to see our "C is for Cat" and "D is for dog" set retire as they were great to use for cards to send to friends who recently lost their pet.   This set will take it's place.

The butterfly on the Ruffled Ribbon (pg 172) was punched out with our new butterfly punch (pg 184).  I added a little Dazzling Detail (pg 158) around the edge of the punched out butterfly and popped it up with a dimensional (pg 177).

Still have one more swap to share with you.   Stop back next time ...

SO proud of you, Bonnie! And since I became a demonstrator to help you achieve this goal, I just know it's ME you'll be inviting to accompany you to Fiji, right? ;)
Tell you what, I'll settle for you helping me apply some eyelashes.....
