Black Friday Somethings - CHALLENGE

Hi All!

It's Friday and we've got a fun new challenge for you this week, one in honor of the traditional Black Friday shopping day here in the States! Each year, on the day after Thanksgiving, the retail shops and stores have crazy specials, sales, early bird deals, and low prices on all your holiday shopping needs. It's a day when people get up at crazy early hours, wait in line forever, pushing and shoving just to get that sale price or one of kind gift for that special someone! It's a fun shopping day, one might feel very victorious at what she can accomplish in a few short hours!

So we thought it would be fun to have a "Black Friday Somethings" challenge! All you need to do is make a project using the color black! Simple! It can be anything, a card, scrap page, 3d item, a gift, as long as it contains black in some form, it counts!

To enter for your chance at this week's blog candy prize, have your entry posted by 7pm EST on Thursday, December 4th. We will be choosing 2 lucky winners this week! Please leave your comments on THIS post for the blog candy chance!

Our sponsor this week is JessicaLynnOriginal! Here's a little info about this unique stamp company....

JessicaLynnOriginal & JLMould Custom Stamps are perfect for almost every occasion. They not only are perfect for those heartfelt gifts that you create; but they make perfect gifts for friends and family. The high quality clear stamps are easy to wash with water or with baby wipes.

JessicaLynnOriginal is my original designs ready to ship to you. They are hand drawn by JessicaLynn and turned into stamps ready for your card making.

JLMould has a new series of DESIGNER STAMPS: We have worked hard on creating some original and creative ready to add your personal or business information to stamps. If you order one of these stamps just provide the requested information at checkout. We will send you a proof so you can see how your information will appear.

JessicaLynn has generously donated one $20 Gift Certificate from JessicaLynnOriginal & one designer stamp from! How fabulous is that! We will draw two random winners using next Thursday evening. Winner 1 will receive the $20 GC and winner 2 will receive the free designer stamp.

Be sure to check out the fun and fabulous black somethings the design team created this week! We hope you'll stamp something black with us this week! Happy Stamping and shopping! :)
