Have I TOAD You Lately....

Happy Saturday! Today we are going to be outside playing in the yard. Tom (my hubbub) is going to be doing some masonry work getting our outdoor entertainment area started. :) I plan on sitting in the camping chair in the sunshine watching. :) Maybe reading a little bit too.

Have you seen the NEW STORE The Scrapbooking Queen has opened as a Facebook Group? You have got to go look at all her goodies! Oh my gosh! Washi tape, Score-Tape, Action Wobbles, My Mind's Eye collections, October Afternoon, Bo Bunny, Button Flair, Greeting Farm Stamps, Imaginisce, Pink Paisley, Bella Blvd..... oh the list goes on and on.... 

All of these items are oh so yummy, and the one I'm the most excited about right now is this....

The We R Memory Keepers ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD! Have you seen this yet? Mine is on the way, and I can't WAIT to start playing with it! TSQ has them as pre-order right now (CLICK HERE), so make sure you go over and get in line for your's before they sell out... and they will sell out... quickly! (Make sure you tell TSQ Janis from PDE sent you over.)

Here's a link to We R Memory Keepers YouTube video demonstrating it....

So.... onto a postcard to show you today.....
