A day or two ago...I thought I'd take a ride...

Hey you guys! I hope my American sisters had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't spend too much $$ yesterday. *wink* I am not brave enough to go out on Black Friday...are you?

Today I have another sample for Jen's Sketch for You to Try! I am currently in a hotel room in downtown Fort Worth...we spent Thursday and Friday night here. It was so fun! We watched the Parade of Lights from our hotel window, then watched as they lit the tree in Sundance Square. All while eating pizza and lounging...it was great!

So...here's my card!
Last week I did a little shopping at The Crafty Scrapper, and picked up this adorable stamp set from October Afternoon from the Good Cheer Collection. How cute is this??? I stamped him in Brilliance Graphite Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock, then cut him out with my Circle Nestabilities. I also cut a Real Red scalloped layer. The DP and ribbon is from Stampin' Up...love it also! The sentiment was perfect for my Christmas/Holiday card stash (hopefully I will mail them this year...), so I stamped it in black on my card base. Super easy!

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don't forget to check out more fabulous inspiration from my stamping friends Jen (and Guest Becca), Amy R., Amy S., Carole, and Susan. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword SFYTT so we can all check out your creations.

Have a fabulous Saturday!

Card and image are cute... very smart to stay in hotel. We braved the "lights" 2 years ago and it took 2-3 hours to get out of the parking garage! Yikes! A newborn and 2 year old- no fun!

How stinkin' cute is this?! Gorgeous coloring, and lovely choices all around. I'm digging a white base these days, too. Hugs to my pal Steuby-Doo!
