Oh yeah, we got some happy people in the house for another
weekend to finally be here!
We hope you all enjoyed your week and Valentines Day...

extra special for your kids.

We have a fun and funky sketch for you today, another
original by one of the SOUS leaders. And hopefully something
that will spark your interest! You've got a chance to use multiple
photos here or even use some of those spaces for clusters of embellishments...
Lots of ideas with this one...

February 10 Die Cut Challenge "You've Got Mail"

We certainly hope that you all had a great week!
Are you looking forward to the weekend? Any good plans?
Whatever your weekend plans we hope that you will
gets some crafting time in and that you'll enjoy whatever
the weather brings you, sun or snow!
I can tell you that in Northern California it feels like Spring so
I can see being torn between scrapping and cleaning! (Ok, well
that probably isn't too hard a choice! LOL!)

Well today we have a Die Cut Challenge for you and with the Valentine's
being sent out we came up with...

You've Got Mail!

Please do remember that this is a Die Cut Challenge and not a stamping challenge.
We so appreciate everyone that joins the challenge but keep in mind what the
challenge is! =)

Okay and now, we are very excited to share the DT projects
for the ideas ladies!
