Well Color me Happy!!!!!!!

Work has been a little crazy as we enter the heaviest shipping period of the year.  I came home in tears yesterday & was ready to call off convention.  But tonight I come home, pick up my mail and what to my biggest surprise not ONE, but TWO cards from my upline Pennie.  One for recruiting in the month of June and one for being one of the top 10 sellers for the Rubber Dubbers for June.  Well nothing can keep me away from Convention now....thanks so much Pennie you really made my day and can't wait to see you in a few days.  Do you guys want to see the cards?  I sure hope so....
This card is Calypso Coral layered with Calypso Coral run through the Chevron Embossing Folder and using the World Treasures Set from the Big Catalog on Page 98.  Some gold glitter in the center of the flowers & tied off with a piece of Calypso Coral ruffled Ribbon.  I received this card for recruiting my dear friend Loralee Smith in June.

I received this card for being one of the top ten sellers of the Rubber Dubbers for June - an Honor I have never achieved - & if you want to know the truth, I am very proud of myself & my customers for helping me achieve this award.  While this card looks clean & simple I know that Pennie put a lot of work into making it so beautiful and meaninful.  I will treasure it for sure.  The background card stock is River Rock - a Whisper White Circle run through an embossing folder....the butterfly is on watercolor paper using stazon & I'm not sure if blender pen & ink pads or markers, but the focal butterfly is beautiful.  The card is topped off with a banner & the words "Congratulations" and some 5/8" Organza Ribbon. 

Thanks to the Noodles for a great workshop & thanks to my outside customers for some orders that put me into the top ten.  I am truly blessed! 

Tomorrow I hope to post some photos of my packing dilema - but convention is only 5 days away for me now!! After working all day tomorrow I hope to hit the food store for a few things then come home and concentrate on finishing up for Christmas in July - looking forward to the class on 7/28!! 

Saturday I have plans in the morning & them home to do laundry, pay bills & pack up for convvention.  Sunday a birthday party in the afternoon - then one more day of grueling work & Tuesday the 17th I'm on a plane at 7:10 & heading to Salt Lake City for convention!  Well that's it for tonights post - I'm off to bed~
