They are offering a fab prize, Bev's Bag:

I chose new baby (probably because this card is destined for a friend due any day now, just waiting for little Anakin to come on out of mommy's tummy :) The card base is Core'dinations, you just *have* to sand this. Well, at least I do! So I sanded the left side of the card, adhered some Daisy Hill papers, and some cute pom pom ribbon, a random scrap from my stash. The cute little baby buggy was cut with my Expression using the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. Isn't it adorable? Yellow Studio G glitter glue to accent it, and boom, easiest card I've made in a long time. It's great when you can spend less than 30 minutes making a card, yet still make something that looks fab!
The sentiment is from the dollar stamp bin at Michael's from a couple of years ago, and it actually has a little baby t-shirt under the sentiment that I kept free of ink. I just wanted the words :) Embossed with clear powder as well, I like a little shine.

Remember, you have 2 weeks to get your creation all linked up to Dream Valley Challenges, so get creating and share with us!

Hope you all have a fabulous day. My parents are taking all 3 kids to see Rango, and hubby and I are off to visit an old friend (and the ladies are headed to a great local place owned by someone we went to high school with, Sap House Meadery, to pick up some deliciousness that is mead :) Yay!)
