... Holiday Wishes ...


Happy Black Friday!  Hope you had a great time with friends & family over Thanksgiving, and you got the BF Deals you were looking for.  Me, I stayed home and picked up some goodies on-line, and then played in my craft room this afternoon.  I made two holiday cards, and one friendship card.  So this is the first of three posts.


My design is based on the Unity KOTM November Sketch, and the Winter Blues Theme from CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #79.

Updated 11/28/12 to provide clarification on the background layer, snowflake, and twine.  They are all Navy Blue.  It may look black in the picture, but truly it is Navy Blue. 

Unity KOTM October 2012 stamps were inked up with Memento Summer Sky & Paris Dusk ink.  After stamping the design on Neenah Solar White cardstock, I layered it on a Navy background, added the Snowflake Die and Navy Twine. 

Here is the sketch ...
 
I am entering this holiday card to the following challenges ...
 
Until next time ... Enjoy!

Inside is the safest place on Black Friday!
