This Little Note Make my Day

  This is so cool!
  Look at this little note that Stampin’Up Staff have been putting in our orders. An owl and cage from the Aviary Set so cute and it is even signed in the back. That little note made the packing seem personal. It was a really nice surprise and makes me appreciate the packers more. Others demonstrators have receive one or more too.  Love this company!
