Live, laugh, love life

Good morning everyone! I don't know if this is true for you all but this week is just flying by. Thursday already? Wow! As you know today is McMahon 5 Designs day. Today I am showcasing the Breast Cancer Awareness FREE digi that you can pick up in the store after you do your self exam for the month.

For obvious reasons I love this months image! When I paired it with the lovely papers and embellishments that Sue sent me as a little treat for being a new DT member and Card Patterns Sketch #98 I came up with this card. I just think it is lovely with those lilies (yes, even though there are roses on the paper). Here is to spring coming early!

Anyway...keep reading to see what other fun things are released this week and what the other DT girls did! Since this week's M5D post is a bit longer today I'm going to bid you farewell up here instead of below. Have a WONDERFUL day today everyone! See the post above for the Made to Crave book and homemade journal winner!

First time to your blog. I got an update from Laycock Designs, and the word that got my attention was "Dove". I am a big lover of the Milk Chocolate, have to have my Dove before bed, EVERY Nite. I have to make sure I stock up. O am just so upset with Walmart because they seem to keep changing the price anywhere from $2.46 up to $3.50. But that is my all time favorite. Anyway, ALL your cards are just so beautiful. I am a follower now. TFS and God Bless.
