Happy Cyber Monday! If you didn't get to shop on Black Friday, today's the make up day. At least that's how I think it is suppose to work. I avoid Black Friday like the plague! It's way too crowded and crazy for me. And I don't do much on line shopping, so today I'll spend the day stamping and creating gifts of my own.

Today I'm taking a break from sharing a Christmas card with you, a friend lost her father just before Thanksgiving and this is the card I created for her. It's never easy to lose someone, but it's especially difficult when so close to a holiday. I hope and pray this card brings a little comfort to her.

I started by stamping the image in Memento Black ink, coloring it with Copics, punching the corners and layering it on some green CS. In real life the green of the leaves really does match the CS. I'm not too great with the camera. It's set on auto everything for me. I'm sure there's a way to get the true color, but...

Anyway, after getting the main image ready, I die cut the Corner Sprigs with a new SB die I got last week and layered it on some white CS that was embossed with a basket weave folder. All the layers were punched on the corners to match the image panel and some tiny white half pearls complete the look.

This week's challenge at DRS Designs is "I Pine for You." Let us see some pine on your card. We'd love to have you join in the fun. You can see details here.

Thanks for stopping by today.
