Just popping by with a sneak peek...

Hi everyone! I am madly disinfecting the house and doing everyone's beddings in hopes of cancelling this bug going around our family. The little ones are so mellow today so I thought I'd give you another sneak peek as to what this Saturday's Challenge will be.
Aren't these fun colors? And no stamping...my kiddos are laid back today but I didn't want to chance getting out my ink pads and stamps. Instead I just used some fun oversized primas to embellish it.
So here's my next hint:
Of course it screamed my name when I saw it last spring and it was only a dollar! ;)
I will have another card posted tomorrow with a new little story to go with it.
Before I go, I wanted to show you something that arrived at my house yesterday as a gift:

Isn't this beautiful? It is HUGE! And in my favorite colors ever - Earth Elements. The tote is a gorgeous faux suede in olive and brown, and it is stuffed with the most incredible embellishments - EE primas, buttons, chipboard, ribbon, rub ons, brads, you name it. A scrapper/stampers dream. Here's the catch. It's not for me. LOL! It is a gift for my 7yo DD from her BFF. WHAT IN THE WORLD? :D Of course she was sooo thrilled when she got home from school yesterday. I may have to negotiate trading primas...
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*

Wow, Joni! Super jealous over all the goodies your girl scored! I also love your cute magazine butlers too cute. Well, I am still holding in there. I am now at 34 weeks and getting more miserable by the day. lol. Jeff comes home in 19 days so I hope the little guy stays tucked away. I had my shower 2 Sundays ago and as I was sitting there I was wishing I could have surrounded myself with all of my great friends, so I was missing you very much! And Lysa too! Ho hum! It turned out to be a very good shower though. I was thrilled with everyone's generosity towards me. I didn't know I was so loved. haha. Anyways, miss ya much! Wish we could be stationed at the same post again. Imagine the fun...just like old times! lol....or was that trouble? hehe.
