Now as any Stampin’ Up demonstrator that was at the recent European Stampin’ Up! Convention in Brussels knows… there was a surprise Birthday Card gathering for CEO, Shelli Gardner.
As Shelli says on her blog…. Highlights for me were being sent onstage to receive an unexpected birthday greeting. I was standing backstage, patiently waiting for my cue, when our stage manager told me to go onstage. I hesitated. . . this wasn’t the way we’d rehearsed it! But she insisted it was time, so I walked out (you never argue with the stage manager during a show!). Donna handed me a birthday card, and then employees started gathering cards from the demonstrators in the audience. Somehow they’d planned this fun birthday surprise without me knowing. Sterling and I opened every birthday card that day (there were hundreds), and that thoughtful gesture made this year’s extended birthday celebration even more special!
Now even though I couldn’t be there in person this year... I decided that I would take some time out to make a card for Shelli in any case… So Happy Birthday Shelli… The card was personally taken over for me by friend and fellow demo, Sharon. Thanks again Sharon! Really wish I could have been there with you all!
So this is the card I made. Yes… another Large Square Double Display Card… definitely my favourite card format this year! And yes I will be sharing the instructions sometime mid November… Sorry but you will have to be patient….
