Spotlight Sunday!

What is one of the greatest perks when you join Stampin' Up! to become a demonstrator? For me it has been all of the friends I have made either through my own classes and workshops and also by belonging to the same community of stamping, making friends through blogging and team companionships. I have three beautiful cards for you today that were created by my "Sideline" Christine Pennington. What is a sideline? First let me start by telling you how the whole "umbrella" of Stampin' Up! works. You join to become a demonstrator by choosing to sign up under an:
  • Upline, you are then considered a:
  • Downline of that Upline. When you have several Downlines that branch off from the same Upline you:
  • Are part of that relationship to all Downlines who are called Sidelines!
Does that make sense? So a Sideline is sort of like being cousins. I met Christine through our team's personal Facebook page. We've shared correspondence and I asked if she would like to be featured on my blog. I love the cards she sent me to post:

All three of these cards were made with the brand new stamp set called "Joyful Christmas" from the new "Holiday Catalog":

Christine hosted a class where her girls made all three of these cards:

I hope you have enjoyed Christine's cards! I know I have. I can't even pick a favorite as they are all gorgeous! Thanks so much Christine for being part of my Spotlight Sunday!
