We had a 9-course meal...little tastes of all kinds of spectacular goodies...PLUS we had "pre-dessert", "dessert", and then "after dessert" sweeties!! Yum! Oh, and speaking of's my first card created in my new role as a "Sweetie" DT member for The Sugar Bowl Challenge!! Challenge # 46 is Marlene's sketch and theme..."for the boys"!
