CAS•ology Week 72...Cue Card: SHOP

I was thrilled and am so honored to have been asked to be the guest designer for this week's challenge at CAS•ology!!
I love the Cue Card challenges, isn't it amazing what things we think of from a simple word?  And taking a word and making a card from it...makes for some amazing fun and fun challenges each week!!
 The Cue Card for this week...the word SHOP!
Given the time of year...the only "shop" I kept thinking of was...
Being that Thanksgiving is only celebrated in the United States, you might not know what Black Friday is.  Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving that marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.  It is said to be the day when most stores are finally "in the black" financially for the year.  It's a day when many stores have huge "deals" and open their doors earlier every year (this year a number of stores are open ON THANKSGIVING...now I think that's AWFUL!!) to garner the shopping dollars of more customers.  It can be fun...you start out really early in the morning to get all the great sales and shop til you drop.  I did it one year......CRAZY...that was enough for me!  This card is for my daughter who will shop on that day!  I used an alphabet die set from Papertrey Ink and sponged red ink on a new stencil from Simon Says Stamp...thought it gave the "Black Friday" more of a Christmas feel:).  I have put a couple gift cards for food(Chipolte) and drink(Starbucks) to keep my daughter going:):)!!  I made the envelopes with vellum and a giftcard die from Simon Says Stamp...
Thank you, Melissa and ladies, for having me on your team this week....so much fun, as usual...love CAS•ology!!  Hope your day is wonderful!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. I hope you tucked a gift card into that amazing card for your daughter! I've done Black Friday once [even though I don't live in the US] and I'm not eager to do it again!

  8. What a great mom you are. This is the perfect card for your daughter. I tried shopping on Black Friday once and gave up in the middle. No savings (if you really find some) is worth the hassle to me.
