The Stampin' Up! Statement of Heart sums it up perfectly for me,
"To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference."
A big part of that 'difference' is in me - it makes me happy every time I stamp with friends or when they share with me, what they have stamped. So, THANK YOU! for making a difference for me!
This gift box is the 2009 Stampin' Up! Ornament that I gave to my downline this year. I created a simple gift tag using the Delightful Decorations stamp set and the Ornament Punch - It is stamped in Real Red Craft Ink and covered with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, so a little extra sparkle. I added the Merry Christmas Banner and tied it on with the gorgeous Black Striped Ribbon and Silver Cord. This ornament is available only to Demonstrators, and I hope it reminds my ladies of how much fun we have getting together to stamp every month at our Demo Get Togethers.
