I would have to say that THE BEST part of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the friends that I have made. Wonderful, funny, creative people, that I would never have encountered otherwise, have come into my life and greatly enriched it, and for that I am truly grateful! Of course, the tangible perks (like the discount, sneak previews, etc.) are nice, too, but I like the "people" aspect the best.
This is one of the cards we made at the SU Retirement Party on Friday. The inspiration came from Vicki Burdick's card.....I just love her style!
While the focus was mainly on things that won't be available after May 31st (I am SO going miss Pear Pizzazz!), there are a few things on there that will be staying. And I really, really like this stamp set, so it just may end up on my 'retired keepers' shelf.
