Last chance my friends... Buy 3 and get 1 free on DSP and the Summer mini will be gone by tomorrow!

Happy Wednesday... Remember today is that last say that you can order out of the Summer mini :-) Some of the items have made it into the Regular 2011-2012 IBC but if you were debating... should I? Shouldn't I get 'this' set? I'll help you.  Do it cause tomorrow it'll be too late and you'll have to start searching on ebay to get it, lol!

Okay, now, don't you think that those cute cards just scream "kids" ? I still have 4 more to share with you... Stay tuned, lol!

4 for the price of 3 on Designer paper...

Last chance to get it... have you ordered yours yet?

Quick, I am placing an order tomorrow and want you to be able to save on shipping :-) If you only want the paper and order by yourself, the cost will be $9.95. So to SHARE with you the discount on shipping and you'll only pay the 10%, I will try to gather other people's orders then I'll have a draw to figure out who will be getting the hostess benefits!!!! How kewl is that!!!

Happy Monday... and let's hope that we finally have this Internet issue solved...

Anywho, we still managed to have the open house and mini catty launch sale! then we made 8 kids birthday cards!!!!  Woohoo!

Here is the make n take for the open house and 2 of the birthday cards! (I am keeping the others for later!)

MDS Hop :-) Yeah it's Friday!

Okay, this week theme is "Boys"  ...   Okay, don't worry, I will have the picture up by lunch time :-)  We had a bad storm here 2 nights ago and I have no internet since at home so I had to pre-post during lunch at work, then create my project on my Laptop, save the Jpeg file to a stick (that was so tricky as I couldn't remember where I used it last, lol) then today at lunch, I will add the picture.  That being said, I know that some of the girls had to skip this week's hop too.  Just can't remember which ones (and cannot access previous emails cause I deleted them from my blackberry... ahhhhh, technology!!!!) So, that being said, I appologize for all this non-sense and feel free to go around and have fun!  "Hop" your week-end is starting off better than mine :-)

Some weird news :-(

Weird in a sense... I won't be able to post until we get a new modem... You guys might have been able to take a look at the light show that was happening last evening and then... poof! Nothing. When the power came back , we had no more internet :-(  We called the provider today and turns out, our modem is now 'fried'.  They are sending in a new one but that will take a few days.

If I can go somewhere and connect for free with my laptop I might be able to get something new posted but With everything I have plan for  this week end, I can't really promise anything and don't really see myself going out for coffee, with monkey and start working away, lol!  Bow-ring, as he would say! And I can't connect with the laptop at the office either.

So hang in there, remember my "mini" sneak peek on Saturday morning at 10 and my just kids birthday cards class at 2 pm.

I'll be waiting for you :-) Just send me a text message @ 519-803-0542 to let me know if you want to come.

See you soon!

Another amazing MDS Blog hopping day!

Oh, how sweet it is... Cupcake, yum!
To Create this page, I used a lot of punches, DSP and textured CS to fill.  Half a bow of the seam binding ribbon to create the ruffles, rhinestones and the sweets for the sweet brush set.
Hope you like it... Happy Friday and go peek at all the other projects brought to you by the MDS Digi Designing Divas :-)
