Stamping instead of Shopping!

So are you shopping today on Black Friday??  For those of you not in the US -  the day after Thanksgiving has become THE day that everyone rushes to the malls to do their Christmas shopping - and all the stores have huge sales starting in the wee hours of the morning.  The stores count on this one day to keep them 'in the black' (ie showing a profit) for the year.  Personally -  I don't go anywhere near a store on this day - I cannot stand the crowds!

I did take a vacation day from work today - but instead of shopping -  I will go out for a walk to work off some of the turkey and trimmings - and will probably do a little stamping as well!

Today I have 3 cards I made using stamps from Rubbernecker  for last weeks Inspiration Challenge over at Split Coast.  The site to inspire us was Fishs Eddy.  First I'll show you my card - and then the item that inspired me
I colored in my little village with a Copic to mimic the design on this Pink Willow Sake Cup.

A clean and simple card -  I just stamped the Kolo Berry Branch by Rubbernecker in red and added rhinestones to replicate the design on this clear storage bowl.

And finally, I was inspired by this apron to create this card using the evergreen block stamp from Rubbernecker.  I used Stickles on the branch to give it a snowy sparkle!
So that's it for me -  thanks so much for stopping by.  How are you spending your day ??!

Beautiful cards, Julia, and love the inspiration pieces, as well! I don't do Black Friday sales either, ESPECIALLY now that they are starting on Thanksgiving Day... We had to take DS to the airport early today, and I must admit to stopping at the LSS in St. Louis to pick up some adhesive. Other than that, we've been home. Glad you've enjoyed your day off!

You can see precisely why I suggest towards co-signing intended for funds. It's just a tragedy hanging around to happen. And people [url=]kredyt chwilówka na dowód warszawa[/url] payday cash advance assistance agencies might not give what precisely some people assure.
A payday cash loan is a short-term financial loan together with big premiums a growing number of most people protect given that they still find it a great choice [url=]pożyczki bez bik[/url] with an prompt dilemma. Typically the loan product may well cover or possibly postpone built with reckoning, however it's often the particular most severe attainable answer. A large number of fiscal loans can be explained over frequently considering that the lender hasn't got an adequate amount of revenue to cover the actual regular debts. It can be a aggresive, highly-priced spiral that is very hard to stop plus triggers massive monetary burdens for most people households.

Ones lender is usually appropriate, furthermore. The mortgage loan assistance small business will try to be in ones payday advances with regard to your debts. However , until finally you'll find it flourishing (and therefore the overpowering the vast majority are usually not) you can expect to continue on to accommodate the really violent range efforts within the mortgage company. In addition to passing along your cease-and-desist notice won't prevent assortment endeavors. All the Truthful Business collection agencies Methods Work discourages [url=]sprawdź to www[/url] banking institutions with getting in contact with everyone when you send an important notice requesting it again. But they also always can claim damages anyone on in the court.
This is my personal recommendations: I just really don't characteristically urge accepting to be able to eliminate personal debt, nevertheless any loan combination mortgage loan may be a great way to suit your needs. That allows you to pay for your finances [url=]kredyt bez bik[/url] 100 %. In return, selecting required to ship monthly premiums towards brand-new provider. The payments may i hope turn out to be at the cheaper rate of interest together with a lower number of fees.

Prior to when signing up for a fabulous loan combination payday loan, ensure you be aware of the eye charge, fines pertaining to not so great monthly payments. You'll find that you will have to verify you have ample salary to help make this monthly payments. Nonetheless, instead of featuring which grounds you, You might want ask a person's buddy to be able to raise as well as get responsibility for the consumer debt. He requires addressed [url=]tanie kredyty na dowód[/url] that from the beginning. Eventually, I will believe greater once you took your debt consolidation mortgage in a popular loan service for instance a commercial lender or even consumer credit rating union.
In case this traffic really are very seriously looking at payday loans, It is suggested that they around have kredyt bez bik all the care regarding with a loan provider that may be a member of this, whose associates sign up for various market best practices.
