Get Ready for ihp's Black Friday Sale!

There are so many special people for whom I am thankful!  All month long I have been meditating on my blessings, and a handmade card is certainly one way to express that gratitude, especially when it is one with a fancy fold that is much more special than a store-bought card.  I followed Beate's tutorial to make this vertical diamond fold.  Here's what it looks like opened:

Cards like this are so fun to make, especially with designer paper packs that make the mix-and-match of coordinating prints such a breeze.  Although many of you are already in the throes of winter storms, here in Florida the leaves are still changing, so this color combo caught my eye.  I suppose our late change of season is one reason that I have such a hard time getting into Christmas card crafting before Thanksgiving.  I really dislike "fast-forwarding" through the holidays!  I love that the sentiment in this set is one that is useful year round!

Of course, the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year.  I am definitely NOT a Black Friday kind of gal...I'd MUCH rather sit in my pi's and shop from the comfort of my cushy chair via my keyboard!
