Stampin' Up Leadership

Today was the last day of Leadership.  I will be heading home tomorrow.  This will be the last leadership event that Stampin' Up will have.  They are making changes to the business and the events.
Stampin' Up will have a meeting every 6 mos. and it will be rotated to different countries.
So here is a short update of the trip.
First off, Leadership was held in Orlando Florida.  The weather was fabulous!  Sunny days and temps around 70ish. 
I met so many neat demonstrators this trip.
My shuttle buddy, Nancy below, we rode the trolley to convention from our hotels in the morning.  Nancy is from Maryland and, like me, this was her first Leadership event too.
 I met another demonstrator and we became seat buddies.  Julie and I both came to convention without a group and so whoever got to the auditorium first would save the other a seat. Julie is from Northwest part of Florida.  We had fun chatting and cheering during the presentations. 
I also met a couple demonstrators from Europe.  Michelle Last from the UK and Jenni Pauli from Germany. 
Tonight I went to dinner with a group of demonstrators from Montana, Texas and Alaska.  Some of these ladies I met when I went to the Unite and Excite event in Red Lodge, MT.
Below left to right: Betty, Rea, Diane, Lisa, Alesha, Sheila and Susan in front.

 I will add more about leadership later.  It was a blast and I am inspired to do some new fun things.
 I got lot's of swaps and pics of display boards!

Bitterroot Stampers Club (Season 4) Jan 15th (Judy L. is hostess)

Bitterroot Stampers club just got done.  I had sooo much fun tonight! 
Judy L. was the hostess this evening and she made some delicious green chili with chicken.  It was so good!  I was lucky enough to get the left overs!  But there wasn't a lot left over as it was so tasty.   She also made Mexican wedding cookies too!  Marti was the lucky one to take them home. 
Marti also brought our adult beverage for the night.  We all had "dirty girls"  Made with root beer and Orphan Girl liquor.  Orphan Girl liquor is a bourbon cream liquor that is made in Butte, MT.  They tasted like root beer floats.  Thanks Marti, they were awesome.

Everyone made 6 cards and went home with 7 tonight. 
The Bitterroot Stampers are going to do a card swap for their club night in March.  They wanted to have a couple months to design and make them.
Here is how this card swap will work:
Each person will make 6 cards (all the same).  The challenge will be to use the same card layout.
Here is an example of the layout:

I borrowed this layout pic from the Sunday stampers BlogSpot.
The shape on top of the banners can be any shape that you would like.
You can use any color scheme that you like.

In March, when the BS club meets we will give each person in the club one of our cards.  Since there will be 6 people everyone will go home with 6 different cards (one of each persons design).

The BS club would like to challenge the Sapphire Stampers club to a card swap too.  I don't know if they realize that everyone would have to make 12 cards.  It would be a lot of fun, and everyone would go home with 12 different cards!  Something to think about... Maybe we could do that for Customer appreciation day in May!!

I can't wait for next Tues Jan 20th when the Sapphire Stampers have their club.
