Thoughtfulness of a Remarkable Stampin’ Up! Team

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Thoughtfulness of a Remarkable Stampin’ Up! Team

I’ve always said that I believe I have the best team in town! They are such an incredible group – sharing ideas and inspiration willingly. Encouraging and supporting one another. Acting as the perfect cheer squad and dropping love bombs aplenty.

In fact, one of our team has so embraced this idea, she now has a hashtag on the rounds – #LoveBombChallenge so keep an eye out for it!

I get endless inspiration from my team and find it the ultimate privilege to work with them – encouraging, supporting, lifting them up and loving on them.

Recently though, they decided to turn the tables and shower me with some love.

It started with some cards appearing in the post, then during my weekly Live Broadcast that I do into our team facebook group, they blindsided me not once but twice! Firstly with cries of ‘Sam check your email’ where I found a voucher for Pandora (I treated myself to some new bangles) and then about 20 minutes in, they then called for me to go onto our team group where they’d planted an amazing video!

I had flowers coming out of my ears, that have made the house smell divine and then the cutest rainbow light ever for my office! They know I love a rainbow!

Cards have been coming all week, and so I decided to showcase them all here for you to see. So much inspiration and love in this selection.

I do love my team, they lift me every day, even when they don’t realise it!
