Black Friday Shopping

I'm wondering how many of you shoppers were up and at em' early today? Not me. I avoid the stores like the plague on this day! Way too many people for me. I'll gladly pay the regular price for things, thank  you! LOL! But for those of you who went shopping, hope it was a great day full of lots of great deals for you.
I thought it would be fun to have all my cards today deal with shopping. 
Starting with one of the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler Edition 2 images, Fashionista!

What I did:
I started by stamping Fashionista with Memento ink onto my cardstock and coloring with copics. I am the farthest thing from a fashionista so it was fun to color up this gorgeous girl! LOL!
Once she was colored I added some accents with my copic glitter pens.
I wanted to keep this a fairly simple card, plus I wanted to try out my new sizzix texturz plates, so I just embossed a piece of white cardstock ( I couldn't get it to show in the photo), then chose a simple layout and simple embellishements. I doodled around Fashionista and the white embossed cardstock.

Next up we have Melanie! I think she's running off to the next sale!

What I did:
I started by stamping Melanie onto my cardstock with Memento ink and then colored her with copics. I added azure smooch to her hat band and garnet Inspiration paint to one of her bags. I added stripes to the pink bag with cotton candy stickles. I cut her out with my nesties and then struggled forever on how to finish the card! LOL! I found a scrap of TAC paper that worked nicely, used my scor-bug for the embossing lines, added some final touches (like sponging around the edges of the image and adding embellishments) and she's ready to go shopping!


Since the kids and I aren't going anywhere, I'll probably have a few more shopping themed cards sometime throughout the day--hope you stop back by!!
Have a happy day!

Cute cards, Danni! I love your hand-doodling!

Just yesterday afternoon, we said we would NOT go out this morning. However, we found an awesome deal on a gift for our son and daughter-in-law that we could not pass up. So, we were up before 4:30 to go to Office Depot. (We figured they wouldn't have TOO long of a line.) We were right. It took a while, but we ended up with two gifts - one for our son and DIL, and one for US! :)

Those are super cute Danni! I'm not going to the stores today either so it will be a quiet-ish day for me. I'm thinking I should probably get out of my chair and exercise though. Well...maybe another minute or two! :o)

Great cards for the biggest shopping day. I didn't get out until 9:00 (which is like 5:00 for the rest of the world) but went to a small town near here and got a GPS for myself for Christmas!!! I hope you had a great day with the kids!!!
