They Surprised me ... Big Time!


Wow.. it was a complete surprise...

My Luv 2 Stamp Group has been secretly plotting for weeks, and they surprised me at our "pre-convention Gala" with gifts, cards and a presentation in commemoration of my 20 years with Stampin' Up!


Honestly I don't know what my strange hand gesture was about.. but I know I was so surprised and so grateful to my entire team for their part in this surprise!!


Cindee called me up to the front of the room and Jan got everyone's attention, then Becky began to read a LOVELY 1 page tribute she had written.. as you can see, everyone was snapping pix and enjoying the moment as much as I did!




Cindee handed me a stack of cards from our Luv 2 Stamp Group members, AND.. you won't believe what they did for me....


Check out the amazing Gift Cards they gave me and the beautiful gift card holder made by Cindee with the Spiral Flower Big Shot die!  They had been planning this and collecting $$ and bought all these amazing gift cards for me!!  I'm so blessed and thankful to each and every person on my team!




Our Luv 2 Stamp Group is truly amazing.. so kind and caring, so thoughtful and sweet.. I love each and every one of them!!  Thank you to EACH OF YOU who contributed to the gift and sent a card!!!

Below are most of the beautiful gifts they showered on me as well as a few other gifties from friends at Convention. I know that there were a few gifts that I had already put away and I'm sorry they didn't get in to the photo.


 We had about 28 of our Luv 2 Stamp Group attend Convention this year and it was so neat to spend that time with them.. for the most part we tried to sit together, eat together, get photos together.. what a great bonding time it was!!  If you'd like more info about our amazing group and joining Stampin' Up! and the Luv 2 Stamp group, please read about it here!

Hi Patty,

Oh, my goodness, I am just looking at your blog and the wonderful group of ladies that gave you that awesome surprise. All the wonderful gifts, but more than the "stuff", the beautiful friendships and memories to last more than a life time. You are so very deserving of all of it. Once again, thanks for all of your ideas, tips, and your enthusiasm for the craft. You cannot give and share without getting some back in return. No matter negative or positive, it somehow all comes back to us. You are an awesome lady, and may you have many, many more years of giving of your love of stamping.

Love and best wishes,
