HEIDI'S BIRTHDAY


Hello, friends.  Hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving here in the US had a wonderful holiday with their families. 

Did everyone get up early today and head out for Black Friday?  I passed on going out with my daughter, did go through the ads after dinner yesterday. Guess what I found??  I have been watching the new paper trimmer by Fiskars, "the Procision" priced at a hefty $ 120.00.  The drawing card for me is, the blade is self sharpening and never needs to be replaced.  Those little blades on the cutter I have now have increased in price so much lately.  Anyways, Joann's had all Fiskars paper trimmers at 60% off for three days starting today.  I got up at 5 a.m. and was at my Joann store at 6 am when the doors opened.  I knew right where they were located and picked one up ($ 47.99 plus tax) and was back home by 6:30 am!  Hubby is going to give it to me for Christmas, so something to look forward to.  Can NOT believe it was $72 off!!! YAHOO.........

Today's card is the card I made for my beautiful daughter, Heidi,  who will celebrate her birthday on Sunday.  Her Dad's birthday is on Monday.  It's so unusual that one of their birthdays didn't land on Thanksgiving, because that is usually the case. 

 
Heidi has always loved her birthday. And Mary Englebreit.
So I made this card which is an old All Night Media stamp by Mary Englebreit.

 
Pretty Simple card.  The Spellbinder's dies formed the card.
Image is colored with Copic Markers.
Daughter stamp is a word set by Kitchen Sink
Yellow satin ribbon.
 
Enjoy your weekend.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later..............

Gorgeous card!
They're having Black Friday here in Canada now, so we don't cross the border to shop!
Can't say I seen any big sales, or line ups for that matter!
Good for you on the cutter!
I'm going to read up on them!
Let me know how you like it when you get it for Christmas!

Wow, beautiful! I can't imagine anyone not loving it! Wahoo on your great deal at Joann's! How exciting. Can't wait to hear how you like it. I have the hardest time finding a cutter that I like, that cuts a straight line :) Hugs...

I have missed commenting on so many of your cards, and I am sorry. Life has been kicking the wind out of my sails, and I hope to be able to explain soon. Till then, please know that I am stalking all of your lovely work. This card is simply adorable!
