hearts home holidays...

Happy Black Friday! LOL! I'm one of those rare birds that do NOT go out for this. Way too many crazy people out there!

So, after enjoying a delicious Thanksgiving meal, the tryptophan started to kick in. (The wine I had with my meal probably made it kick in even faster! LOL!) So, after changing into my sweatpants (with the elastic waist band...hey, you KNOW you did the same thing too!) I went to my craft cave and worked on another card. This I am entering for the CTD#219Retro Sketch #38, and Unity Stamp's Friends with Flair.

And the inside:

Here are the colors and sketch I based my card off of.

I did alot of stamping with this card. On the soft sky panel I stamped snowflakes using Versa Mark ink. I did the same with the limeade panel but using the holly stamp, and repeated that on the inside panel as well. Nothing like making your own designer paper! ☺ I like the understated look it gives. I colored the heart with a marker then used some glitter glue over it for a hint of sparkle. There is also a bit of glitter glue on the snowflake between the reindeer.

Thanks for stopping by. If you are one of the many who brave Black Friday, I wish you good hunting! Have a great day!

Chris ☺

  8. I am with you, Chris.......I do NOT venture out on Black Friday. Much too much madness for me.

Fabulous stamping. Really love the little heart on the sentiment strip, too!
