Happy Black Friday!


Happy Black Friday...If you are out shopping at a crazy early hour, I hope you get lots of good deals!  I normally go out early, but this year I'm sleeping in and am not sure I'll shop at all unless it is on-line!  My mum and I have a tradition of going out together, but she is recovering (very well thankfully) from her knee replacement surgery.  Not quite well enough to shop until we drop though :).  

We'll be having a lot more time with our family this weekend, but my first to do today is to take a photo of 32 people! It is a family friend...cross your fingers that it works out for me.

Before I go, I have two cards to share with you for the most recent Viva La Verve Sketches...once again I have had fun making them a bit more CAS.  I hope you like them!

Good for you sleeping in, I saw on the news that the shopping is crazy in the U.S. today. Love both of your cards, so pretty, those snowflakes are lovely.

oh, wow! That mojo was working these! I love the way you can make sketches CAS! You have a real gift for that! LOVE the non traditional colours on the first and the fab banners and RED on the second :) Have a wonderful day!

Love how you used the snowflakes to create the diagonal!! Gorgeous. Love the red and white on the second. A real punch of colour :) Enjoy your weekend relaxing with family :)

Both cards are gorgeous, Lynn! I always love your snowflake cards - so beautifully stamped! (As a matter of fact, I mentioned you in the description of my card here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/somecards/8183435287/in/photostream. I wanted to mention it because I don't think you've seen it yet.) Love your fabulous use of banners on the second card!

Good luck with taking the photo today! :)

These are both so lovely, Lynn! :) I love the snowflake one, so so pretty! Hope you had an awesome thanksgiving:) Hubby and I did brave the crowds, lines and cold last night, and found this morning that we could get similar deals online from home! LOL! ;)

Ugh! I don't know how you do it! Black Friday is NOT for me ;), but my hubby did sneak out around 6:30 am to snag a little something for Ezekiel's Christmas.

Your cards are just perfect! Really lovin' those pennants!

And good luck with the pics! I'm sure they went just fine ;). Hugs!

I hope your photo shoot went well yesterday, and I'm glad to hear that your mother is recovering so nicely. These cards are amazing. I absolutely love the soft colors in your first card, and the use of the LID rectangle (I think?). And the second really packs a punch with the bold colors.

GREAT job on getting the sketches more CAS for your designs!! Love both cards, Lynn! Hope your mom gets a good rest on her knees and you get to save some $ for stamping! (LOL)

How did the "photo shoot" go? I'm sure it was awesome, you're very talented with photos! I didn't end up going out yesterday, either. Thought about it, but didn't. I did buy a couple of stamp sets that were on sale online ;) I love the sentiment on that first card, the different fonts and words are great!

Love the red and white on the second one and what fun to stamp snowflakes in pastels!

These are BOTH fantastic, Lynn! I love the snowflakes done in pastels!
