Today I made a card for my dear friend and downline, Sally Hadley, who just passed $100,000 in career sales with Stampin’ Up! It had to be SPECIAL to celebrate such an awesome accomplishment, so I combined it with Connie & Mary’s color challenge and spent a happy hour crafting this masterpiece:
To make it even more exciting, the inside slides out and the balloon floats up:
I was surprised at how much I thought about Sally as I created this card for her: She has been a friend for 14 years and I love visiting with her. We share the same faith, struggles and goals, and talking to her is easy. She is thoughtful and kind, sarcastic (in a good way), easy-going, dependable, loyal, tenacious, hard working and fun to be with. She likes simple, quick crafting and you can see her artwork over on SallyStamper, Ink
FB page. Yesterday was her birthday, too, so wish her a HBD if you stop by! That’s one of the benefits of stamping something specifically for a friend, I guess ~an opportunity to reflect on what they mean to you and the satisfaction of creating something special, just for them.
Sadly, I don’t have a picture of us together (an error I intend to correct the next time I see her), but this is her doing what she loves best: Stamping!
Way to go, Sally! I’m proud of you and know this is going to be your best year ever 🙂
