For the Love Of Chocolate

Catherine Die Cutting, Projects

I hope everyone is having a great day!  We are home today with a sick child…my oldest, Anna, has a fever.  It's odd, because she just had the flu less than 2 weeks ago, and a week before that she had a fever.  This girl is missing a lot of school!

Last night, I had some stamper girls over for Stamps & Chocolate.  We stamped some lovely projects, had some wonderful brownie cookies and talked about the demo opportunity.  2 new gals joined our team last night (yay!) and one of them was my 100th personal recruit!  Hi Michelle!

I have to laugh because when I met my upline to sign my paperwork almost 6 years ago, I said, “I won't do that recruiting thing”.  haha!! 

One thing I was telling Michelle was that I am so excited she is signing up because I develop close relationships with many gals in my downline.  Many of them are very close friends of mine, and I have seen some wonderful relationships develop between members in my group.  I love my job!

If you are interested in being a demonstrator, and part of my downline, HURRY!  The $85 mini starter kit ends on Monday!  email me at [email protected] and we can chat about it!

On to the projects from last night!

This was a fun one!  When I was making it I wanted a card with chocolate on it to go with the theme, so this was perfect. 

But who do you send a card to that says I love chocolate!?  Well, it says Things I Love…Chocolate (#1!) and on the background I stamped the shopping and shoe stamps from that set…inside it says: But Most of All YOU!  How cute!
