TGIF peeps!

Hi there,

Out shopping yesterday with my pal and neighbour, Sally. We visited the Florida mall and I started my proper Christmas shopping but I had seen a cute handbag in J C Penney's - but they didn't have this in the Florida Mall! Oopsie! After we had lunch at Charlie's subs we headed back to Posner Park to the J C Penney's there and, yes, I DID find the bag there so bought ....... TWO!!! Couldn't decide which colour to buy - terrible excuse I know! We were fascinated by the new restaurant opened up in the mall - wasabi sushi, where you select from a conveyor belt!!! We spoke to the manager there who confirmed they'd only been open a couple of weeks. Sally's son and daughter both like sushi so I bet they'll be giving it a try soon!

And now for a quick Christmas card ..

Materials used:
  • 12.5 cm square, 250 gsm white card and matching envelope
  • 12 cm square black card panel
  • 11.5 cm panel of green glitter card from a DCWV stack
  • Inkadinkado image inked using Memento tuxedo black ink on to a white card panel, matter on to green glitter card and then black card
  • White satin ribbon with Merry Christmas in silver on it
  • Silver snowflake
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

Cute Card Thursday has launched challenge #240 and it's SOMETHING SCARY

Pan Pastels have challenge #41 ongoing for the rest of today and it's ANIMALS

Here are some more pics from our trip to Lake Toho on Wednesday ....
