BLACK FRIDAY - STAMP SOMETHINGS

Hi all!!! Well, I am stuffed full of turkey and today is the biggest shopping day of the year, so it is been a fun couple days so far!!! In honor of Black Friday, our challenge at Stamp Something today is to stamp something using black as your focal point!! Now, I will tell ya, I had a hard time with this one because I very rarely use black in my cards. BUT, I decided to use my sock monkey and went from there. I mixed basic black with Pirouette Pink, then paper pieced my sock monkey, adding a hat and present so that I could make him a Santa monkey *wink* Make sure you go on over to the Stamp Something site and see what the rest of the DT gals did - they will rock your world with their creativity!!! And, how about giving the challenge a try? Just upload and leave a link so that we can check it out and enter yourself in for some yummy candy!! Now, I am off to shop, shop, shop!!!! I will tell you all about it tomorrow!! See ya!

Paper - Basic Black. Pirouette Pink, Whisper White card stock, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
Inks - Black Stazon
