Wishing for ........ shopping money ;)




Hee hee!   Happy Thanksgiving weekend!   Did you brave the stores this year for Black Friday shopping?  If so, I hope it was  successful trip :)  I stayed home this year, in need of sleep and relaxation and catching up on going 900 mph!  But I sure had some wishful thinking! LOL! 

Today's card is from Deedee's Digis called "Wishing Well" and the sentiment is my wishful thinking, bwahahaha!   I think so many of us wish we had that money tree growing in the yard or the well of wishes that could grant us the things we need ;)  I showed this card to my dh and told him it was my Christmas card to him this year - rofl!  He eyes popped out of his head - good thing he knows I have a sense of humor :)

Make sure you head on over to the Crafting with Deedee's Digis to see the current challenge, too!  There is a lot of wonderful inspiration for you to see and play along with - come check it out!   And remember, all Fall digis are on sale right now for just $1 each - what a wonderful time to grab some of your favorite images!

We are off to the Christmas tree lot to find "the tree" - this year, with money being a bit stretched, I'm hoping the kids will fall in love with my kind of tree - the Charlie Brown tree!  I always go straight for the one that is always overlooked, spindly and forgotten.  Last year, the *helper* said "oh, you don't want that one - it's ugly - it's missing branches - hey, let me show you some really good ones back over here!"  Well, guess what tree came home with us :)  And it looked splendid! x0x0

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone! 
Blessings!
Kelly

  12. Kelly, you make me smile! :) This is TOO cute! Perfect tribute to the holiday shopping season. I'm doing as much shopping as I possibly can online this year. I'm not a fan of the crazy lines and traffic in the parking lots. Point-click-ship is my motto this year! Haha!

    Hope you found the perfect Christmas tree, too. The Charlie Brown trees are the ones with all the character. Hope you post some pctures when you get it up and decorated.
