I was in Victoria last weekend for the 2016 Canadian Summit meeting with fellow Canadian demonstrators and Stampin' Up! Canada's General Manager, Dale Hampshire. We had a terrific time, enjoyed the very mild weather Victoria was offering and had really interesting conversations about our respective experiences with the new compensation plan. I also stayed an extra day so I would have the chance to see my family that lives there (I have a cousin that lives in Victoria and another one that lives in Nanaimo). I've stayed in touch with them through Christmas cards and emails, but it was the first time in 15 years I was seeing them in person (the downside of living on opposite side of a very large country).
I had a box of brand new Stampin' Up! supplies waiting for me at home on the way back, including the additional items that were released for the second half of the Sale-A-Bration promotion. Have you seen that adorable tandem bike from the Pedal Pusher stamp set? Couldn't resist it! I'm also in love with the Metallics Glitter Tape, so much so that I stocked up on two of them! You can see I used some to tape my main image in place on the card, and added a Calypso Coral Designer Button on top of it.
The cute little flying hearts come from the Brights Sequins pack. The bottom panel was created with the Specialty Project Life cards that are still offered as a Sale-A-Bration freebie - I layered a gold-chevron acetate card over a calypso heart-printed card. The card base was stamped with the Brushstrokes background stamp.
