Egging Chris on...

June 9th has been unofficially designated Demo Support Appreciation Day, by some of the demonstrators over on In Love With Stamping.

As demonstrators, we all help each other out and our upline (the person you sign up under) is your first port of call for any advice and questions. But there are always times when you upline isn’t available, or the question requires an answer direct from Stampin’ Up! – and, of course, some of us signed up too early in SU’s UK career to have an upline... and this is where Demonstrator Support comes in.

The US demo support team is huge – we have just two people, Chris and Eileen, which is lovely as we really get to know them. They couldn’t be more helpful and friendly – so thanking them once a year with a card is the least we can do!

This one I made for Chris. I tried to keep it masculine but couldn’t resist some ribbon – it looked too plain without it! I sincerely hope this card has reached Germany by now as I know that Chris can’t resist stalking our blogs on occasion.

The eggs are stamped in Early Espresso and then coloured very carefully with a blender pen and Baja Breeze ink. In fact, I had to “dot” the ink on (there’s a fancy word for that, isn’t there?) to stop it smudging.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
