This summer I attended Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary Convention, it was a blast and this year I made 150 card swaps and 80, 3x3 card swaps. Year after year, I make swaps, and swap at convention and come home, put a few on my display board and the rest are tucked carefully in a box (or two), never to be seen again, until I reuse them for Ronald McDonald House cards to donate. WELL, this year I have made a goal, actually a few goals. First, I am determined to use most of the swaps either as a CASE or at least inspiration for a stamp set. SO most of the cards are sitting in 2 boxes with the lids off so I can look thru them for inspiration! I have used 8 cards to CASE and 4 3x3 cards to CASE. My 2nd goal was to send 20 cards to people each month, not for their birthday, but for no reason, or just cause I was thinking about them....After all, I do sell products to make cards!!!!!!!DUH, July,, I sent 26, August 22, and September - so far 7. Third, to reach my $100,000.00 Lifetime Sales by December 31st. Only $1621. to go, I know I will make it.
I am SO Grateful for so many things, my husband, my children, grandchildren, my health, my family, my friends, and the list goes on! I am Thankful, yes, truly grateful for so much, my customers, who are now my friends you have helped me get this far. I love what I do and I try to share as much as I can.
Tonight while stamping and looking on blogs, fb and more, I read an email from a blog I subscribe to, Fab Friday....their challenge are fall colors, chocolate chip, crushed curry, soft sky, Sahara sand and tangerine tango. I just made a card, CASing a Convention Swap for my upline's meeting using those cards (minus the Soft Sky). I decided to enter this for the Fab Friday Challenge, not that I can win a prize (I have no idea whether there is a prize), but to share. So here is the Convention Swap from Tina (do not know the last name) and then my CASE for this Fab Friday 26 Color Challenge:
Chocolate Chip cardstock and ink
Crushed Curry cardstock and ink
Very Vanilla cardstock
Tangerine Tango marker
Sahara Sand ink
Woodgrain Embossing Folder
Sweater Weather DSP
Truly Grateful stamp set
and a brown Sharpie marker
