More Fun with Pennants

One of my best friends, Kimmy, and great downline invited me to this fun class using our Pennant punch and Pennant Parade Stamp Set.  I couldn't wait to make them.  She made a take home kit for me and I made them immediately.

On a side note, it's people like Kimmy who make being a demo so fun.  The friendships I have made over the last 7.5 years including customers is the best part about doing an in home biz!  If you are looking for the same kind of camaraderie and a way to support your stamp habit, don't forget about October's promotion!  The month is already half way over.  So, let me know soon!  You will also get an exclusive stamp set to go with your starter kit!
I digress :)  Here's today's card.
