I had a birthday three weeks ago, but I seriously almost forgot about it. I was down in Orlando, Florida for Leadership Convention, but then my hubby got very ill and was in hospital and in the crisis, I totally forgot about my birthday! We were supposed to be at home by that time, and hadn't planned on celebrating in Florida. The best birthday present was that Ken was discharged from the hospital that day!
When we got home, I was so happy to receive a beautiful birthday card from my downline, Doreen Austgarden. She doesn't have a blog yet, but she certainly has the talent to start one. Here's the card she gave me:
That's just so clever. I love the way she used the Word Window Punch to make the striped awning! Her cupcakes are also punched using the Cupcake Builder punch on some Floral District DSP! And the beautiful Tangerine Tango Ribbon from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack - free with a $60 order during Sale-A-Bration, gives the perfect finishing touch. I felt very special when I received it! Here's an angled view so you can see the 3D aspect of this card:
I know Doreen would add her voice to mine in reminding you to check out and sign up for some Product Shares! She is patiently waiting for them to fill up so she can get hers!
What are product shares? Well, it's co-operative buying, but I do all the work for you. (That's COOPER-ative buying! lol - Get it??) Let's say you love Core'dinations paper, but you would like a variety of colours instead of 12 sheets of Pool Party. In order to get some Real Red or some Primrose Petals, normally you would have to buy 3 packs of it at $9.95 a pack. That's almost $30.00. But with a Product Share, 3 people each buy a different coloured pack and then share the colours equally, so you would end up with 12 sheets, but you would have 4 Pool Party, 4 Real Red and 4 Primrose Petals, getting the variety but spending 1/3 of the money. Now you don't have to find 2 other people, order and divide it up yourselves, I do that work for you. All you have to do is decide which Product Share(s) you want to participate in and sign up for it. Once a share has the required number of people (usually 4), I will send you an email invoice (PayPal, etransfer or cheque) and you can pay me. I will order and divide it up and get a finished package to you. (The prices include tax and shipping.)
Follow the link above to order, or click on the Product Share button on the top menu bar, and the rest, as they say, is history!
