Uggh... gotta Black Friday hangover!!

Honestly, I can't believe I was up at 2:30AM!! Yup, you read it right!! 2:30AM!! Am I CRAZY or what?? But boy did we have a good time. I'm about 99% finished with ALL my Christmas shopping. How cool is that? Hopefully, this weekend we'll get to work on decorating the house. Ooooh, can ya smell the cookies baking??? I'm gettin' SO excited!!

So, this little card represents me after we got home from shopping. I was SO in need of some serious shut eye, let me tell ya! I stamped "grumpabella" (that's SO me!) from Stamping Bella onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored her with my Copics. This DP is from Making Memories and I followed Bella Babe Dana's sketch for the layout. I used some SU Basic Black for the mats and then stitched around the edges. I also used my NEW Martha Stewart punch on the SU Basic Black CS under the pink DP and then added the black brads before adhering the vertical piece. I finished with this saddle stitched ribbon and there you have my Bellarific/Black Friday card combo!! Be sure to check out the other Bella Babes and the Sistahood for their take on this FABBY sketch over at Bloggabella.
