Tis the Season

If only I could look this good when I go Christmas shopping. Last year I made the mistake of getting up at 4:30 am the day after Thanksgiving to join the insanity of shopping for the best deals. Never again will I do that. I stood in a line at Walmart with about 200 people ahead of me at 5:00 am waiting for the doors to open. I had planned to buy the GPS Navigation systems for my kids. It didn't happen because they had aisles blocked off so that you had to navigate the store like being in stop and go traffic. By the time I made it to electronics, they were all gone. So, needless to say, this year I will not be joining this insanity . Besides there are sales going on all the time now. In fact, I think you can go online and do your purchases the day of Thanksgiving and get the same deal. I will have to figure that one out.
For this card I used "Tis-the-season-to-be-jolly-abella". The paper is from Stamping Up. And the sketch is number 55 over at the Bella Forum on Split Coast Stampers.

I can just see you at WalMart a 4:30 in the morning, navigating traffic with a full cart, and calling yourself on your cell phone! LOL

She's great! I just got her in and can't wait to play with her tonight! I love your papers with her. Sorry you had such bad luck on shopping. My daughter and I go every year and make sure we hit Victoria's Secret for their great bags! I'd love shopping from home in my pj's. She's so stinkin cute though!
