Congratulations Patty!!

I've been following you for quite a few years, and have been inspired ever since I started following you. I started stamping and scrap booking years ago and was not that good at it. I started going through you tube videos one day and came a crossed your videos and sat for a couple of hours (between loads of laundry) and watched your videos. I was so inspired that I pulled all my stuff out again and started working on cards and scrap book pages. Thank you so much , for showing me how to use the things I have to create great cards and scrap book pages.

Happy Stampin Up anniversary Patty! I look forward to your blog emails with so many great card designs and so helpful videos. You all but make the card for me...LOL! I have benefited from your organization ideas many of which I have followed. Your ideas for products from the Container Store and Ikea are much appreciated.

I love your gorgeous pictures of your garden and purchased your Gratitude and Praise for myself and to share. You have touched many lives in your 23 years and its much appreciated.

I'm a fairly new customer of yours - probably 4 months. I have been making cards for about 10 years. I've always had a difficult time with color shading. Your sample and explanation has helped me a lot to visualize the shading I need to do. It has made a huge difference in my card making! Thank you for all your tips and sample cards!

Congrats on 23 years! That's amazing - I started stamping with SU products in 1999. I was invited to so many parties and had no interest. I finally decided to go to one so people could quit inviting me. LOL - I have been hooked ever since :). I feel like I've been following your blog for 10+ years. You are one of the first blogs I ever followed. Thanks for a chance to win! Beth B in Clemmons, NC

I've followed you for about 5 years! Thank you!

Brenda Carbon

Patti- I have only been aware of you for a few months--I can't remember just when it was or how--but you do such a wonderful job of creating and sharing and you are so talented. When I have spoken with you I have been so pleased that you are so kind and helpful and I realize that SU is not a "job" with you, but rather a "calling". Twenty three years is a very long time to work with so many people and continually keep things fresh and updated and to have the patience to do all that is required of an active demonstrator. Twenty three years is longer than many marriages! :) I hope you will continue to enjoy many more years as a demonstrator and I sincerely congratulate you and thank you for all you do!
