new challenges at Design Dollies and Humble Pie!

i am SO relieved the workweek is almost over! 5:00 can't come quickly enough today, folks!

but life is good, so i won't complain. last night, The Son and i attended a concert in Philadelphia - any of you familiar with the Violent Femmes? well i've been a fan for as long as i can remember, and i scored some free tickets to see Gordon Gano and The Ryans (Gordon Gano was the lead singer and frontman for VF). SO awesome! one of the perks of working at home is the ability to check my personal email frequently, and find out about things like ticket onsales or giveaways. GO ME!

i'm in the process of trying to get the videos up on YouTube (i've never uploaded video there before, and holy HECK it takes forever - can anyone offer any tips?), and then i have a bunch of photos to edit, so while i'm waiting, i am trying to catch up with my blogging here!

OOH, GOT TWO DONE! check 'em out!

(sorry for the fuzzy bits - i was being bumped by someone walking behind me!)

okay, so you all know about the excitement of Some Odd Girl, my Dollie Kristy's brand new website? the CUTEST digi stamps evah! go buy her stuff! and download an ADORABLE freebie! check him out:


and YESTERDAY, we posted the brand new Sketch Challenge at Design Dollies - i wasn't scheduled to do this one, but had an idea for it, so i created this simple card:

here's the sketch:

i flipped it 90 to the right and it was a super easy one - so i am SURE you can come up with something great!

you want this prize:


well you can now combine ANY of our challenges this week, and submit your project by this SUNDAY at midnight EST, or you can just do the sketch challenge and have it uploaded to Mr. Linky by next WEDNESDAY at midnight EST. either way, COME AND PLAY!

and TODAY, being Friday, bring you a brand new Humble Pie Challenge! this week, our theme is BLING, baby! check it out, ogle over the Bakers' sensationally sweet creations, and play along! we'll be announcing the prize for this challenge on Monday!

right. i'm stoked. it was a great night last night, it's Crop Weekend in my Cafe Mom group, i yanked out the photos and have loads of scrappy ideas swirling around in my head, and tomorrow i'll be craftin' with my MIL all day! like i said, LIFE IS GOOD! have a great weekend, folks!
