Thanksgiving day Cards

My Thanksgiving Day Cards!
I am so sorry I havent posted in a while, but with the holiday it has been crazy around here.  I am so happy my nephew Richard is home with us after two long years and I could not have asked for a better gift!  I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday as well. On to our project:
So I did not feel like cutting paper to make my cards (kind of last minute) so I used my Imagine to color and cut them it made my job super fast and easy.  I used another cricut lite cart the Celebrate with Flourish this cart has come in very handy recently. I also made up my own RGB codes for these super cute turkeys.
Here is the recipe:
My Imagine
Celebrate with Flourish(cricut lite cart)
RGB codes:
black 0-0-0
Turkeys were cut at 2.5in
Cuttlebug folder (leaves)
butterfly stickers
Leaf ribbon ( dont know from where)
Kraft cardstock

Thanks for stopping by and looking have a wonderful and safe holiday season.

By the way I convienced my husband to get up the morning after Thanksgiving to go get me some carts.  I cant wait for that. So without futher ado here they are:

Walmart Black Friday Deal!

Walmart Black Friday Ad:

I almost never go to Black Friday sales , my husband usually does, but when I seen this ad, I might have to drag myself out of bed!  Maybe I will talk my husband into going for me (he he!). I also noticed when looking at this ad that these are not the cricut lite carts that are already out they are NEW!  I have been waiting for these to go down, I think I might have to get 2 or 4 LOL!   I am also loving the lime green expression and the aqua I have to really stick to my budget and not get one of those, that will be really hard though, now onto the Ad:

Have a wonderful day!
