SATURDAY sweetness!

seriously, folks, I am in the BEST mood... it was another somewhat stressful work week, but on wednesday, i attended a webinar for one of the companies whose stuff we sell, and i ended up being a VERY lucky winner.... on its way to me is a brand new Wacom Intuos4 tablet - i can't WAIT to play with it! i sell these to lots of schools, and i hate it when my customers ask me questions i can't answer. now at least i'll have a bit of experience playing with them, and won't sound so clueless. now i just have to get me some PhotoShop or other drawing program to really be able to test it out!

i also logged on this morning briefly before i began my crafting, and saw that i was the winner of the BasicGrey Challenge #13, for my little hedgie card:

there is an awesome stamp set in there (a Simon Says Stamp exclusive!), some YUMMY Tokens charms, and la piece de resistance... Tim Holtz TONIC scissors! OOOHHHH, i am excited!

today's mail brought me a package from Canada (a belated valentine's giftie from my BFF), containing the tea we can't seem to find here (Celestial Seasonings - vanilla strawberry rose... TO DIE FOR), as well as some scrummeh indian snacks. he is the BEST!! he knows what i like! too bad the card he sent wasn't homemade. ;)

it's crop weekend in my Cafe Mom group, so i'm hoping to get a couple of nifty challenges done... this morning i finished up the last of the February challenges for Design Dollies, and soon we're heading up toward my inlaws' house and stopping at Jo-Ann so i can see if they have packs of PLAIN BROWN CARDSTOCK. i can't seem to find JUST BROWN anywhere, except online, and i'm unhappy about that. i use it more than any other colour, and my lovely English penpal would like me to send her some die-cut flourishes in brown, but i HAVE NO BROWN, except for a few scraps. *sigh*

anyway, if you're looking for some inspiration, go check out our NEW HUMBLE PIE CHALLENGE - it may actually challenge you! ;) we want to see only ONE type of embellishment on your projects this week... and we've got a new linking system, so you don't have to leave your URL in a comment anymore. the prize is the fabulous Umbrella Ellie stamp:
