Soaring Above the Clouds

I'm thrilled to be able to feature the Above the Clouds Bundle in today's post. I'm sharing a swap card I received from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Linda Cullen. What a wonderful summer feel it has. This card would be great for a new graduate or anyone starting a new job, promotion, retirement, or any new phase of life. I love that Stampin' Up! provides us with versatile stamp sets that we can use for so many different reasons and occasions.

Here is a downloadable PDF I made so you can recreate or CASE (Copy And Share Everything) this card.

Learning, Growing, Sharing Friendship & Creativity

What a wonderful couple days I had this weekend. It started waking up on Friday morning to blue skies and bright sunshine, something we haven't seen much of in Ohio this spring. Such a beautiful way to welcome in summer. Saturday was just as beautiful, today, Sunday is our third straight day of sunshine and blue skies!

This weekend was also made wonderful with the visit of my friends Susi Brunk and Sherrie Parker, my Stampin' Up! upline and second upline. We shared dinner, wine, friendship, and laughs. They spent the night at my house Friday, then we all attended the Stampin' Up! Ohio Leadership and Business Gathering on Saturday hosted by Jessica Werner, Demonstrator Development Manager of USA Northeast Area and Cori Hancock of Stampin' Up! who oversees all of the DDM's in the East Region. How wonderful it is that they were able to bring together so many Ohio demonstrators. O-H-I-O! 

Highlights of the event included leadership activities and business demonstrations by several fabulous Ohio demonstrators on topics such as increasing sales, finding new customers, building and growing a team, increasing retention of team members, and using social media in our businesses. I'm grateful for the many informative and motivating presentations, and am spending some time today working on plans to implement some of these new practices. Of course, the best part of any Stampin' Up! event is reuniting with demonstrators I don't see too often and meeting new people in my Stampin' Up! family. Making connections, building relationships, and learning and growing together is such a big part of what I enjoy as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Add a bit of Lemon Zest!

It's feeling like summer in Ohio this week which makes me look forward to long bike rides, lazy afternoons by the pool, pretty flowers in pots on my porch and patio, picking up fresh fruit and vegetables at the local farm market, picnics with family, and enjoying cold glasses of lemonade. Making fresh, fun cards is easy peasy lemon squeezy with the Stampin' Up!'s Lemon Zest Stamp Set and coordinating Lemon Builder Punch. Create and send Lemon Zest cards with happy greetings for the birthday guy or gal or someone you love.

And...Lemon Zest isn't just for making lemons and lemonade! How about using the lemon stamps to make limes? How about lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit slices? Change up your colors to make all kinds of citrus fruits for even greater variety of cards.
