Now, onto the Black Friday Challenge hosted by Ms. November, Mary Harmon. Mary has come up with an awesome challenge perfect for this holiday season. What does Black Friday mean to you? Make it a color challenge if you like, or create a shopping themed project, or as Mary pointed out, perhaps you'll create something regarding a downward swing in the stock market...LOL! Not that a downward swing in the stock market is humorous, but I love that Mary has covered all aspects ;D

I was inspired by the color black and decided to use one of the new heart images that was released just a few months ago. I picked up both sets, because I love the images so much, but the heart I chose is from the Sacred Heart Art set. I paired my heart with wings from the Sacred Heart set, which is a set that has been around a while, but it is timeless. All of these images are available in the shop. Get some now! OR if you live in or around the Albuquerque, NM area, stop by China Phoenix 2. If Nancy doesn't have them in stock, she is always happy to order them.

Nothing complicated about my card. I colored the images with Copics and used a fair amount of glitter glue to give the wings some pizzaz. I found some interesting hardware in a drawer filled with card making odds and ends, and decided to use them. I don't even know what they're called, but they're cool. I wrapped some twine around them once I had them on the card. Sorry, I wish I had a name for them :( I know! How about Metal Thingies ;D Anyway, I wrapped twine around the Metal Thingies and tied a crude bow. That was pretty much it.

Please swing by the blog to see all of the cool stuff the Bombshells came up with. There are some amazing creations! Also, you've got roughly two weeks to submit your own Black Friday Challenge card. You'll find a linky tool at the bottom of the Black Friday Challenge post, so be sure to enter. There are prizes to be had! AND don't forget to sign up to follow! That's it for now, come back tomorrow and I'll have a Christmas card for you. Stay crafty!

  4. I've been so bogged down with familyThanksgivingChanukah stuff that I never got around to telling you how much I love this card.

    So I will now.


    There I yelled it. I feel better now.

    Now what do I love about it? The coloring, the details, the glitter, that fabulous hardware, and the design. That's about it. Ha!!!
