Calendar Girls - June

Calendar Girl time!  It is always a favorite time for me.  The SCS Calendar Girls have the best cards to share.   Their links are on the right sidebar...take a peek!

June was hosted by, Debbie.   She gave us a long list of holidays to choose from for a theme on our cards this month.   I chose Black Friday as my holiday.

For Black Friday I wanted to use black and just a touch of another color.  I used some DP that I actually recently used - yep, use what'ca got is in motion! The shopping theme made me think of friends and shopping.  I then remembered that Kelly gifted me some cute shopping themed images.  I dug one of them out.  Then I used some cute leftover ribbon that was in a kit from, Carol.  Thanks for the gifts, girls! The end result will be sent to one of my friends.

Do you Black Friday shop?  You know I love me a bargain, but I did that shopping twice.  Once we got a Barbie Jeep taken away and offered back if we paid cash to the person....who extorts on Black Friday?!  We heard a huge fight, a smack, and a lady exit an aisle in the air over a friggin' crockpot! The second time, I went with my girlfriend.  You would think that I would never go again after the first experience, but I thought it had to be a one time thing.  We were issued a number to wait outside in the cold wee hours of the morning, only to go into the store and find that all bargains were gone. People were really rude and some chick hit me twice in the back of the legs with cart.  No thanks.  I'll be the girl sleeping in!

A Barbie Jeep taken away? So it isn't so! Crazy! I love me some Black Fridays though and do try to go out with my daughters and make an adventure out of it! So far, other than long lines, it's been stress free :)

Now your card - GAH! This is perfect! I love the image uncolored, it's a perfect contrast to the dark paper - love this!

Fabulous card! Love the image and sentiment and that you used black in your color scheme!!! I only went out once on Black Friday and not very early. I too will be the girl sleeping in. Sleeping is much more precious a thing than shopping. ;)

ohh wowww..love your black and white take in showing your 'black Friday' card! This turned out very classy and elegant too! Love how crisp your image looks au-naturelle...it sure pops against the pretty background! Well done!!♥
As far as attending Black Friday sales...I started to, right here in Canada...as many stores now mimick the US neighbours. Would I attend again? Not sure...it depends on the bargain I am looking for! LOL
