It's Border Buddy Saturday and Alison here this week with the age old question "To be or not to be" – whoops I mean "Is it Better to Give than to Receive?" I would say both are wonderful and this week I want to share two cards – one was received by me and the other will be given by me.
First to the Receive (maybe this is better?)
I received this absolutely beautiful card in the mail this week from Stampin' Up! Canada to recognize my 12th year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. It was made by an anonymous stamper from Canada! It is a WOW! Here's the inside:
Super special right? The back is stamped with "Handmade by your fellow demonstrators" – pretty amazing!
The "give" card is actually for members of my team – they participated in a challenge during Sale-a-bration and if they met the targets they were invited to a special Achiever's Day today! We'll have a stamping project (which I will share on my blog after everyone has received them), food, games and a prize. This is the card they will each receive either by mail or in person at the event. I CASED this card from page 17 in the Catalogue – just changed out the greeting! Do you think they'll like it? I hope so!
So, is it better to give than to receive? I think when it comes to a handmade card or gift BOTH are better! Please share your cards with someone in your life – getting a handstamped card in the mail really does make someone's day special!
