Challenge time

Where did Friday go?? Maren and I headed out to Ben Franklin just for "a little while" and ended spending the whole afternoon there! It is so fun to walk through with someone else who just ooohs and ahhhs over the same stuff! I picked up a lot a stuff.... ;)
Then we had parents night out, dropped the kids off at Karate and went out for our "date night". Yep, short lived, Jeff got called out. Figures.
oh well-story of my life!

It's Saturday and we are doing the birthday party thing here. I need to stuff party bags, make cupcakes, and prep the pizza dough. After the party a few kids are coming over for a sleepover and dinner will be home made pizzas.
Good stuff!

My card today is from the DTGT challenges and was my least favorite so far, but yet, (and not at all surprisingly) was the most commented one. I didn't like how the circle turned out, and yep, I am my own worst critic! I did get to use my new Martha Border punch.

off to cook and clean. enjoy your saturday!!
