Convention Day 4 and STM

What an amazing evening!!!
Words cannot even explain my excitement!!!
Cannot believe that I still have 2 more days here!!!

First, I'd like to say thank you to Brian for your continued support in my love of stamping and scrapbooking!  Thank you Buffy for day 1 pushing and teaching and putting the bug in my ear about Rising Star. I am a goal setter not knowing that it truly was attainable!!!  Thank you to my entire Stampin' Family!!!!  I was so thrilled to have 4 of my Stampin' sisters here with me!!!! All your enthusiasm this week has been amazing!
Thank you to my growing downline!!!  You truly are the reason I am a Rising Star!  Your accomplishments have helped me to reach my goals and lets set some for you to be a rising star next year!  Who wants to take my challenge? 
Want to join my team?  I can't wait to come back to our downline meeting next Friday and share how we will all Grow, GRow, GROW!!!

On the agenda today...

to learn the techniques that I learn from this swap.
We will do the crayon resist emboss in August!

My other swap is my WoW swap

Did you notice the embossing on the bottom of the card?
