Happy Holidays...


I'm in the holiday spirit...are you?

I'm looking forward to going on my Black Friday Shopping Spree....I've done it for years but within the last couple of years the kids have been joining me in the madness.  Yup, we're out there at midnite...with Darin as our driver:)  This year the stores are opening earlier but I think I'll be power napping during that time...

Here's my card for today:


I love the use of non-traditional colors for the holidays.

All the paper is compliments of the wonderful Alicia Thelin:


Awesome amount of goodies.

So, did you notice that the paper theme is non-holiday?

Yup, I did it again...

Please see:

Sunday's card:  Believe in the Magic

Monday's card:  Peace and Serenity

I was inspired by the current retro sketch:


The snowman and the sentiment are from the now retired EAD Designs.

I'll be back tomorrow but will be taking Thanksgiving day off:)

Happy shopping...my mom and I normally head out, but since she had her knee replaced two weeks ago, I might stay at home and shop til I drop on-line!

I love the sweet little heart background on your card...adorable card!

Shopping madness...I cannot even imagine going out on Black Friday! It's even madder than Boxing Day is here (and that's pretty insane). More power to you :P I love the fun colours on this card - that heart paper is awesome!
