Hope you're feeling better....

Hello! How was your turkey day? I hope you were able to spend it with family and/or friends. I unexpectedly got the day off; of course, I was on call so I just toted my work clothes with me in case I had to make a quick change. Luckily enough, I wasn't called in!

I took a tote bag of books/magazines with me to read. Most of the family likes to watch sports, but myself...not so much.... So I reread an old Paper Crafts publication. I came across this cute card, and thought it would be fun to CASE. I switched the cloud from paper to felt and put my sentiment across the bottom. I am loving the cheerful rainbow...especially after the cold weather we are having! I plan to make some more of these to fill my card basket for family and friends.

Sentiment: Papertrey Ink "Everyday Button Bits"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: SU! Cool Caribbean, Bazzill Bling
Embellie: Robin's Nest Dew Drops
Extras: MFT Die-namics Cloud Die, White Felt

I am wondering if any of you braved the crowds and shopped the Black Friday sales? DD talked me into it and I will say we had a good time. We got up at 3:45 and arrived at our first store just minutes after 5:00; we then found out they had opened at 3:00! I was amazed at the amount of people out and about! Wow! I had no idea! We spent the majority of our time in a department store, but we made quick stops at a lot of places. We were able to get gifts for DH, both kids (that was tricky, since DD was with me!), 2 Grandmas, 1 Grandpa, and 3 of DD's friends. All in all the day was a success and we finished it with lunch at our favorite deli before coming home to crash. DS couldn't believe we spent 8 hours shopping! The time went fast and we were lucky to have encountered nice shoppers/clerks along the way. I don't know about you, but I have heard the stories....

All right, that's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by; I hope you're having a super day!
