Happy Hump Day! How's your post-Thanksgiving week going thus far? I've been super busy with work and putting out Christmas decorations. Did you all join in on the Black Friday madness? I did! It's a tradition for me and my family. I usually have my list of must-gets and a map of the stores I want to visit laid out at least a week in advance. Typically I'm back home by 8:00AM or eating breakfast at the local Cracker Barrel. Here's the list of items I scored:
  • Three 600-t.c. sheet sets
  • 32in LCD HDTV
  • 4 Cricut cartridges
  • 4 Wii games & 4 accessories
  • KitchenAid stand mixer
  • Pyrex 14pc. bake-n-store set
  • 3 pairs of boots
I made it home by 10:30AM after starting my day at 3:00AM. Overall, this year's experience was a good one. All of the shoppers that I encountered were well-behaved and the retailers operated efficiently :-) Our tree is up & decorated. I've wrapped all but 6 gifts and I only have 4 more items to purchase! I should be done with my shopping this weekend.....YEA!!!

Shopping aside, I did manage to get a card completed last night for two challenges, Caardvarks Micro Color Challenge and Mojo Monday Sketch 115:


Paper: Recollections (white, pink & turquoise), Paper Studio (aqua) & My Minds Eye (stripe)
Embellishments: Studio G, Recollections & Hero Arts- stamps; Making Memories- eyelet; Stickles; Copic markers; stash- ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities- diecuts; Crop-a-dile Big Bite

Thanks for stopping by :-)

What a beautiful angel card! You did a wonderful job coloring it in! Great job with Mojo Monday 115!

Congrats on so many good scores on Black Friday! I am not good with crowds, so I only went to Michael's on Thanksgiving night. Scored the two Cricut cartridges I wanted...so that was enough for me! Have a great day!
