I count my blessings that as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, it has helped me forge new friendships with people I would never have met otherwise and this July, it will be 8 years since I first started this journey! I had never envisaged building a team, and it certainly wasn't the reason why I joined but I do have a little team who I love to bits and I love celebrating their successes too.
This is a card I made for my lovely downline Petra, who celebrated her birthday recently and I used Flourishing Phrases and off set the die cut to give it a shadow effect and used the gold Wink of Stella pen all over it to make it pop.
Petra promoted to Silver which enabled me to promote to Silver Elite last year and this June, two more joined her team so HUGE congratulations Petra!!! My heart is swelling with pride!
This is the card I sent her to congratulate her and I also sent her some glass beads to go on her silver key ring droplet, (but as usual, I forgot to take a picture of it), each bead represents a new member of her team and to mark each milestone on her own journey.
