thanks so much...

So, how was your turkey day?  I hope filled with good food and good peeps!

I just might be Black Friday shopping as this posts at midnite....we'll see if I was able to crawl out of bed:)

I'm super pleased with my card for today...

That poinsettia and polka dots have sat un-inked for much too long...I picked them up at the A Muse Warehouse Sale {ugh, I just checked...I went to JULY!} and finally put them to use.

inks:  Memento Pear Tart & Rose Bud

I'm using my upcycled notecards again...they were going to end up in the recycle if the gal at work didn't rescue them...




I was inspired by the gals over at CASE Study:




I love CASE Study

Check out Kryssi's FAB card:



I tweeked the design a smidge...the bigger polka dots don't do well on the tone on tone stamping...lesson learned so I decided to make my version a more color filled design:)

Kryssi has been such a great pick over at CASE Study...I do so love her fun style.

Check out the fun Black Friday sale over at EAD Designs!
