I Love Awards

My Great Grandma Upline (is that a goofy term?) is Linda Heller. I count myself very lucky to have her because I don't really have a direct upline anymore and I so appreciate someone who recognizes my accomplishments. I used to be much more active with my SU! sales but life has become busy and my priorities have changed. All the sales I had before kept me out of the house a lot and it wasn't helping my marriage at all. So, now I do the occasional Stamp Camp and I have 4 stamp clubs that meet every other month. That keeps me busy enough to make a bit of extra cash and be eligible for free goodies from SU! Anyway, Linda has about 100 people in her downline (that was the guesstimate she gave me last time I asked) and it seems like every quarter I still get these adorable 6x6 awards from her! I hang everyone on the wall of my stamp room! I'm proud of my work but even more, I love to look at what she puts together! So, this is the one I got yesterday. If you look closely it says "#1 in Group Sales for 2nd Quarter 2008". It's not the second quarter yet, this happened last year too. I bet Linda's word processing program automatically inserts the year. Anyway, no matter what it says, isn't it cute!? She made this one with the new Simply Scrappin Kit called Summer Days. Isn't this a great color combo? And can you see the paper piercing that follows the lines of the flowers? And...she used my new favorite accessory!! Wide Grosgrain ribbon. If you haven't tried it because you have thought "it's too big for a card" you HAVE to try it...you'll love it!
