Happy Anniversary to Me!


Wow – I can’t believe it’s my 6 year stamp-iversary with Stampin’ Up! Time has flown by – and that’s a sure sign that you’re enjoying what you do πŸ™‚

The actual date actually slipped past me; my 6 year date was on October 19th. I knew it was sometime this month, but I’ve just been too busy to stop & look it up! Then today, I received this lovely card in the mail.


Happy Anniversary to Me!

Isn’t this lovely?


I love figuring out what products were used in making cards! I put on my detective cap, pulled out my catalogue, and figured it out! The flower was die cut with the Big Shot and Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. The sentiment was stamped onto a banner die cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I love how they used the Patterns Party Decorative Mask to stencil the pattern in Island Indigo ink. The combination of Whisper White with Island Indigo and Soft Sky cardstock is just beautiful! And blues are my favourite colours πŸ™‚ And isn’t that Island Indigo 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon pretty?!


Here’s a look at the inside; you can see that it was sent from our Canadian office in Calgary, Alberta. It’s signed by Dale Hampshire, who is the manager there.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

  1. That is so nice that they recognize your years as a demonstrator. In 7 years I have never received a card of thanks for my service. Thank goodness I like what I do here e in USA. That’s when you know your appreciated.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you don’t receive an anniversary card in the U.S., Patricia! (although I know there’s a lot more demos there than here in Canada, the recognition is appreciated). I’m sure that you are appreciated by SU! – and especially your customers!! πŸ™‚

  2. Happy anniversary! I am so glad we both became Demonstrators because it allowed us to meet! You must be pretty special to get a card from SU (but then again, I already know you are special! ).

    1. I totally agree Susan – the best part of being a demo is the friends you make – and you’re definitely one of the special ones!! πŸ™‚ (I guess there’s too many of you in the U.S. for SU! to send out cards??)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
