A Christmas Wish...

Black Friday Madness

Right now as I type this (it's 10pm on Thursday night) I am unsure if I will be heading out early to brave the crowds and madness to get that great deal when there is only three items in the store at that price or some crazy thing like that (I heard that on the tv).  I say there will be specials later.  I do need a laptop and maybe I would get a great deal, but won't there be deals near Christmas too or later in the afternoon?  

Those of you that have signed up to receive my email newsletters (if you haven't, to sign up its in the left column and says "Sign up for my Email Newsletter and it has the little envelope beside it) have already received your email from me telling you the great deals I have today for Black Friday.  I figured I wanna spread a little cheer too, plus if you are like me and want to hang out leisurely in the morning drinking your coffee, why not take advantage of some online deals right?

I do know I am going to go to a movie with my girlfriend Melissa (hey honey I am not wearing my Eclipse shoes) in the afternoon.  We are just undecided if we want to shop a bit before or after. She is more on the ball then me she actually had the sales ads and was looking at them.

So I wanted to show a quick card that will be one of the ones the girls do at my Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards, and this one is actually the one that Colleen Magness did for her Founder's Circle swap, (I said one of the ones I posted earlier was hers...oops! well it was the same embossing folder and no one corrected me...ha!)  I used less bling then she did since there will be 70 cards made in this style. Thanks Colleen for the awesome card to case!

Stamp Set: Tags till Christmas

Paper: Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Always Artichoke, Real Red, Whisper White craft

Misc: Northern Flurry embossing folder, Decorative label punch, rhinestone bling, White Taffeta ribbon, small oval punch

Tip: To get that Real Red Decorative Label punch layer behind the white punched out image, cut the punched out red label in half and then glue it under the white punched one, it gives the "look" of being layered but its really the same punch.

I am not sure I showed you this yet. It was hard to take a picture of, I really need to get higher back ground things.

Candle abra
I picked this up a couple weeks ago on one of my antique shopping trips, I just love the look of it, and I am not sure where I am going to hang it.  I want to put my battery operated candles in it so it will flicker and add ambience to my studio, it came with the real white candles.  But when Lauren and I were out last weekend I found a different one that I really really want to go get.  It was shabby chic and had like crystals hanging on it and I just keep thinking about it.  Not sure where I would hang either, but I just love them.

Well this old gal is gonna hit the hay just in case I end up getting up early after all.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are ready for a nice relaxing weekend.  Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in!
