Black Friday...

Happy Black Friday to all my fellow paper-crafting addicts! Right now, I am waiting in line at a certain computer retail store with a bunch of other suckers in the hope of replacing my kaput laptop with a new computer. If you are at home, snug as a bug with some cocoa or coffee, I am very jealous, but because I love you, I am posting some info about a fun Black Friday sale event going on at Taylored Expressions, one that you can enjoy from the warmth of your own home! In anticipation, I made a card celebrating my favorite little shopping buddy, my son, who is at home with Daddy wondering where in the world Mommy is hiding.
My little guy LOVES whales, and I wanted to make him a special card to open while he waits for me to come in from my shopping adventure. I used the very adorable A la Carte set, Whales in Love, and changed the happy couple into a mother and baby by adding one of my favorite sentiments from The Places You'll Go. After coloring and framing the image, I added some fun patterned paper and some twinkly gemstones. Thanks for stopping by today...and wish me luck!
