*hugs and kisses*

It's been a while since I've posted a pocket card, and today I've got polka dots AND a pocket card to share with you! Imagine that! It's hard to believe I was able to squeeze this many images onto one 4-bar notecard. Elyse is just darling with her little pink dress and shiny black shoes. First, she stops at the bakery to pick up a few sugar cookies. (Those are my favorite!) Then she strolls into the sweets shop for a soda and a lollipop. She probably should hit the dentist office next, but instead, she walks into the flower shop and picks up a cheery bunch of daisies to take home to her mom. Isn't she sweet?

Beth has just started sharing previews of the new Saltbox Studio release over on her blog. Be sure to stop by for a *sneak peek* of what's coming!

I always love an opportunity to talk about my talented friends. For those of you who like digital scrapbooking, you're gonna love this! My best friend has been working with PhotoShop for years, and her talent amazes me! There's a digital scrapbooking site called Little Dreamer Designs, and she was chosen to participate in the Little Dreamer Apprentice Program. From March 5-April 1 there will be weekly challenges, and each participant is required to submit items for those challenges. At the end of the four week program, Little Dreamer will choose 5 finalists to submit a full-size kit to sell in the Little Dreamer Shoppe. The kits will be on sale for 10 days at the price of $2/kit. Kit sales will count as 60% of the designers final score, and the designer with the highest score will be offered a position on their team to design kits to sell in their shoppe. Here's a link to their website. You have to register to see all the entries, but it's worth it as there are 40 mini-kits created by the participants FREE for downloading! My friend is Naomi Eggers (simply me Naomi), and her kit is called Spring Has Sprung. I know you're gonna love her kit, so please leave her a comment. It'll make her day!
A Muse notecard, papers, images, and sentiment. Fiskars mini scalloped scissors. Tiny flower punch from Target dollar spot. Yellow brad by Making Memories. Brilliance graphite black pigment ink. Copic markers. Fruit punch stickles.

What an adorable card. I, too, love your little story about her shopping trip. Sounds like fun! BTW, you've reminded me I need to make a dentist appointment.

Also, thanks so much for giving me a plug! I hope anyone interested in digital scrapbooking takes a look at the Little Dreamer Designs site.
