Laurie’s Card

I recently attended the Stampin’ UP! Convention in Salt Lake City.  On Wednesday evening I participated in setting a World Record for the Most Greeting Cards Sent Simultaneously from a Single Location.  I made a card, had it addressed with the required postage and took it with me unsealed to Salt Lake City.  There was a representative from the Guiness Book of World Records examining all 2,984 cards to make sure they met the required criteria.  I stood in line for 2 hours to make my mark on the world.  It was like being at Target at 5:00am the day after Thanksgiving.  

I guess you are wondering why in the world I would stand in line for 2 hours for anything.   Well the reason why I stood in line is because my card was going to my special friend, Laurie.  I wanted to make sure she knew that I was thinking about her from the land of stamping. 

I also got a chance to meet peep, Susan Field’s hometown South Florida demo group.   I’ve been hearing about them for several years and I had the opportunity to put faces to those names.  What a great group of ladies!  It was such a pleasure hanging out with them in that 2-hour line.   We had planned a Dinner & a Swap with the St. Louis and South Florida demo groups.  I used this same card for the swap.

As my final bang for the buck, I will feature this card at my August Stamp Camp.  Since I have already sent this as a Sneak Peek, I’m not spoiling any surprises.
