And the Winner is.....

Recently I ran a little competition. I offered those who had purchased a Extra-large round Scallop punch from me the chance to win a $20 voucher to spend on SU products of their choice ... well I have drawn the winner and this time around the winner is......

Liz Hill! Congratulations Liz... please contact me to claim your prize. :-)

And whilst I am writing happy news, I wanted to share my own happy news with you all... people keep asking me if I managed to achieve this year's Incentive Trip, and I am really happy to report that YES! I got over the line. Sure, I managed it with only days to spare (this year was the closest I have come to missing out in the past 4 years!), but I made it... and am so happy to be going away yet again with an amazing group of people who love working with this company as much as I do. In the last four years we have seen some amazing and beautiful locations...Palm Cove in 2008, Noosa in 2009 and Hamilton Island in 2010. This year is the first year I will need my passport! We are off to Fiji... want to see where we are staying??

This is the gorgeous Sofitel Resort on Fiji's Denarau Island. Looks pretty cool huh?? I cant wait. We dont get to go until October, but I am told the weather will be lovely then and its always great to have something to look forward to!

But what is really important to remember that we never achieve such things in isolation....I would not be going to Fiji if it werent for my wonderful customers and Demonstrators in my team. It really is a combination of things that help you earn the trip. We are rewarded for all kinds of things, but the key to attaining the trip is actually having good balance in your business. That means I need to make sure that I am achieving results in different areas... both my team development, and also my own personal sales. That's why I am saying that it would not be possible without you.. my readers, customers and team members. Not only do you guys make doing business a pleasure, but it makes it worthwhile in a practical sense. I have been able to go places and do things that I would not have been able to do without SU, and I am so grateful for it all.

Thank you so much!!!

PS The card at the top of this post is made with the Strength and Hope stamp set from our latest Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue. The set is available in wood-mount or clear options, and for every set sold Stampin'Up will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Foundation to support Breast Cancer Research. I'm using this set at most of my workshops currently so if you are attending or holding a workshop in the coming weeks you are likely to see me use it. Hope you like the card...although there is quite a bit of Champagne Shimmer paint sponged onto the main part of the card, and it doesn't show up in the photos I'm afraid. Here is a close up of the detail:

And stay tuned for my next post... we have "Deals of the Week" starting from May 1st right throughout May. These were really popular last year... so keep an eye out for some great specials.
