I am writing this post from Salt Lake City, Utah! I flew in today to attend Stampin' Up!'s Convention: OnStage Live 2016 which officially begins tomorrow. :) #onstage2016
We'll get to see the new 2016-17 Annual Catalog that doesn't get release to the public until June 1st! There will be lots of card swapping, sharing of ideas, trainings, demonstrations, entertainment, etc. And of course we will be spoiled (as always) with gifts, prizes, and the ability to see all this new stuff first!
I'm connecting with friends already and we are having a great time. Gloria, Tim, Vicki, Brenda and I went to Olive Garden for lunch.
And then this evening our whole group gathered at Squatters for dinner.
We had a group of 14: Mary, Anita, me (above)...Terri, Brenda, Tim (below)...
...Vicki, Sandy, Cheryl, Gloria (above)...and Linda, Carol, Brenda and Susan (below).
And to make me even happier I have been able to find food I can eat at both restaurants so far. Yippee! This was my dinner at Squatters. I had their gluten-free tabouli quinoa salad with grilled chicken. Yum!
We exchanged cards and gifts. And Linda brought lots of other cards for show and tell. She told me this is her basket of cards that she brings to bars so she can "pick up people." LOL
We also celebrated Vicki's birthday. (She had already blown out the candle by the time I got this great photo.)
Speaking of swapping, this will be the card that I'll be bringing to an organized group swap tomorrow afternoon. I decided to share it now because I'm not sure how crazy the day will be tomorrow. (I may not get a chance to post.)
I demonstrated how to make this card in a live broadcast on Periscope Monday. Here is that "scope" in case you missed it.
I also made a few others with a slightly different look - just changed out the wording.
Here are the supplies I used to make this card.
Did you hear the news yet? Weekly Deals as we know it will be leaving us.
There are a LOT of them this week! CLICK HERE to shop these deals in my online store. You have through Monday, the 18th to get in on these great prices.
I'll try to post again soon! I have more projects to share - gifts I made for my team. And I'm sure I'll have even more photos from our fun Salt Lake City event. FYI...I can't share any peeks of the new products until Monday, the 18th. So please don't be disappointed if you don't see any of that from me in the next few days. I don't want to break any rules.
