Yesterday I played hookie from the last hour of work to join the Stampin’ Up! CEO, her kids, the SU! staff, and a whole bunch of demonstrators and customers for the Day of Service event. Actually, I worked through lunch so I wasn’t really being “bad”. đŸ™‚ This picture shows the first batch of cards that I assembled as part of the event. To be perfectly honest, I got started on these at the event, and then finished them up early this morning. I have paper and sentiments cut so that I can make a bunch more, which I hope to get to this long weekend. During the event Sara shared that the COVID-19 Giveback had reached the $200K milestone on Thursday morning which is awesome!

This card is my personal favorite of the first batch of cards. I adore the sentiment because it brings a smile to my face. Sadly, my “homebody” work hasn’t been good during the last 2 months, but I am taking steps to improve (pun intended). For my cards from the event I decided to go a little beyond the instructions that we were provided in advance. (You can see them here). I followed the same cutting instructions, but then sub-cut the 3 3/4″ x 5″ pieces to feature two patterns of DSP on a card front. I also added a mat for the DSP and sentiments to add some more color. I dug through my retired ribbons to find some coordinating ribbons, which adds to my satisfaction with my creations.
