Hello! Happy Tuesday. Having a good week? Realizing yet that Thanksgiving is a little over two weeks away? Ack!! That means a little over two weeks AND one day till Black Friday. Woot Woot! I totally can't wait. My mom, Ava, and I -and usually my MIL if she comes up which she isn't this year :( - head out around 2am to get to the stores. I don't necessarily LIKE to shop, and I usually don't ever make any Christmas purchases at the stores on Black Friday, but it's sort of fun to be out and about while people are going nutso! lol. I try to do most of my Christmas shopping online. It's easy peasy lemon squeazy and I can do it in PJ's...although now that I think about it, a lot of the people I see out shopping on Black Friday still have THEIR pajamas on. :)
Ok, but you didn't come to hear my Black Friday stories! I had to make a sympathy card for my Boss' Boss. He lost his father in law last week and this is the card we are sending to him. I mostly used this week's Mojo Monday sketch, seen here:
Here is my card:
I really love the colors together and making the background on the left side (from your perspective) of the card was fun. I used my "Timeless Textures" set from Skipping Stones. Using "Forever in our Hearts" from Verve was a no brainer. It's a beautiful set with lovely sentiments. I decided to forego the square lattice folder in favor of the vintage wallpaper fold from SU for the black panel. I know y'all are proud of me..lol.
Well, that's it from me. Have a wonderful day. Come back tomorrow for my 2S4Y card! Laters!
