Note added October 17: The video to make this swap card can be found HERE:
As most of you know, one of the most exciting things about Founders is getting to swap cards with the highest achievers in the company. And although it might take a loooong time to create my card in 113 copies, nothing in the world beats getting that many in retrun when you swap on Thursday night.
Well, I've got to tell you, I spent a fair chunk of time on Thursday putting the front of my swaps onto the card base, then packaging these in little cellophane bags so they could withstand the trip home in 113 different suitcases. And let me tell you, I was NOT alone! It was amazing how many people cam with unfinished swaps this year and had to assemble in the gathering space!

And let me tell you, I was THRILLED Thursday night when we swapped with each other and there was a LOT of excitement about my card. I have already given permission to countless ladies to reproduce my card at parties, workshops and on their blogs.

Swapping is a LOT of fun. Somewhat chaotic, yes - but fun nonetheless.
And after we swapped, Stampin' Up! provided us with milk and cookies as we shared stories and ideas, tips and tricks for running our businesses.

And then when we got back to our rooms, we were greeted once again with a pillow gift. This time, our pillow gift was a classic children's Christmas story, signed by none other than Shelli herself!

It was a good day. A VERY good day. And the trip is only half done! Tomorrow we get to re-live one of the Founder's Circle highlights - the yearly visit to Kanab where the manufacturing facility is.
But I guess I better leave something for tomorrow. So for tonight I will leave you with just a sneak peak of all my lovely swap cards!
