Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge: Christmas

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Did you attempt any shopping on "Black Friday"?  I actually slept in and headed out at 9am.  I didn't really go out with any great deals in mind, I just went shopping because my Dad asked me to go and help him out with his shopping. It ended up being a great day. We shopped most of the day and only stopped for a short time for some lunch.  Most of the stores and malls were crowded, but manageable. The worst store we went in was Kohls....The lines formed at the front of the store and went all the way around the back.  Yeap, I stood in line for my 2 moved pretty quick.  The best part of the day, was spending it with my Dad!  Did you find any great deals???? Did you buy anything for yourself:)?
See this date...12/5/2011...This is my magic date! On this day I will take my last nursing exam of the semester...and let me tell you, I cannot wait.  I don't get out of school until 12/17/11, but everything after the 5th is cake....I seriously can't wait!  You see, I love school, I love the learning part, but I hate taking tests. I hate studying and all the anxiety that comes with it, so if you happen to look at your calender on the 5th, and think of me (after 2 pm), smile and know I am smiling with you :)
So this week, we have another super fun challenge for you....This week we want to see your Christmas cards or projects. Should be easy right, seeing we are right in the middle of the season.  I of course waited to the last minute to make mine, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used one Whimsy Star studios images and combined it with some of my new Authetinque paper and here you have it!  A very traditional Christmas card.
   So, last weeks "Thank you challenge" entries were gorgeous., and as always, it is so hard to pick the weeks TOP 3....but a girl has to do what a girl has to do, so last weeks TOP 3 are:

Just typed out a long response and I got an error. UGH!

This is really cute! I didn't shop on Black Friday, I babysat. My son and gf went out at midnight so I had a sleepover with C. They went out again on Fri. for a couple of hours. Cyber Monday is more my speed!

You must be so pumped about 12/5! See you Saturday.
