Digi Bells September Digi REVEALED....

Helloooooooo....  are you all as excited as I am?
I tell you, it's been tough to keep this secret, simply because I have been going "ga ga" over this brand new Elisabeth Bell Digi.  She's really got quite a little collection now.  Hop on over and check them all out!  I promise they'll make your heart melt.

I hope you've been to The Digi Bells DT Blog, and found out all the details about this amazing little cutie...  You are definitely going to want to also stop by my DT sisters blogs and check out their AMAZING Creations using this little "Catch of The Day"

Alright, Alright, so many of you have been entering guesses as to what you think it could be and it was a lot of fun reading what all your thoughts were....  well.... NOW YOU KNOW!!!

When I first saw this image, I knew IMMEDIATELY exactly what I wanted to do with her, and this is what I came up with.

I just couldn't resist.  I had to make a pocket card, and add some coupons.  There are 2 coupons, both for a "Child Free" shopping day.  As many of you moms are aware, it's difficult to ever just take a shopping day for yourself, without dragging your little ones along, and all of the paraphernalia that needs to go along with them. 

Just looking at this little "Catch of the Day" makes me think of the many times I had my son and all his "Stuff" in the shopping cart, and had no room to put the things that I was actually shopping for.  ha ha    At the time I remember feeling frustrated, and now that he's a teenager, I'd give anything for those crazy kid moments again.

Sooooo, this card would be a great card to give as a gift to any mom who could just use a day of shopping without having to drag the kids along.  Here I show both coupons, which are actually identical, but wanted to show both sides of it, which is why one looks different than the other. 

So????  What do you think of that crazy idea for a card/gift???

Have you been to visit the rest of the DT's examples?  That's where I'm going right now.

Want some inspirations quickly???
Here is a list of the DT's posts using

"Catch of the Day"

Be prepared to be AMAZED
