Happy Black Friday to my American friends

...and a belated Happy Thanksgiving to you all too! We have our own recent American Thanksgiving tradition as well and that is to head to Windsor on Wednesday night with friends, dine at the Keg, lose money at the Casino and then head to the Lion's football game on Thursday. Truth be told, I just 'tag along' to the game and I'm only interested in the dinner and Casino part.

I also updated my profile pic with my new 'do'....I will say that it didn't look anything like that this morning. I almost scared myself when I got out of bed. Yesterday for the game I just showered and blew my hair dry without any real concern for style. (really, with people wearing turkey's or blocks of chess on their heads, who is gonna look at my hair) Well my natural waves took over and by the end of the day it was getting a bit 'large', and by this morning it was out of control and i woke up looking like Kramer. EEEK! So I guess it is not quite as blow and go as I thought.

Enough about my adventures...I do have a card, and it's another quickie. This past week I have been focused on getting Mom's Xmas cards done and when I get on a roll like that it is hard for me to switch gears. This is Stamping Bella's reindeer circle and I kept the card very clean and simple turning the circle into a hanging ornament.


I'm lucky to have the day off today so I'm gonna put another card together which is all ready and coloured up. Then head to pickle to get more paper to finish Mom's cards, oh before that I will shower and deal with my hair! And this afternoon, just pull out some images and my copics and relax the afternoon away.

I'm also feeling the urge to get a little creative with product so I may just throw in another no-colouring-required card again. We'll see. Our challenge next week at Bloggabella is appropriate for the first Friday in December and it will be another HOLIDAY card! I don't know about you, but Christmas is most fav season to make cards.

Simple is stunning when you touch the paper with those copics, Linda. Your reindeer is darling. Love his vibrant "hornaments"!! Okay, so maybe they are antlers but that really didn't work as well with my creative word play:)

I guess with Kramer style waving, there is really no wash and go, but it sure looks lovely when you do the "do".

Love the card and the new hair do. Clever turning that circle into an ornament. I looked at that stamp and didn't buy it because I wasn't sure what to do with it - now I know!
My oldest daughter has natural curly hair (opposite of mine) and when its damp out it grows too - I told her she has Chia Pet Hair! She doesn't always think I'm funny.
