Weekly Cricut Challenge #9-Black Friday!

 Hi Everyone and I sure hope you all had a Blessed Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful one, we were invited to some friends and we brought the Turkey and I can say it was my Best Turkey EVER! Good thing too because I would have felt awful if it would have been dry or no flavor (or I could have just blamed it all on Ken and said he made it, lol) not really giggle! Anyway back to the challenge.................................
On the Cricut Circle Blog they have a weekly challenge and sometimes I enter and sometimes I just let it go. This week the challenge has to do with Black Friday and yes I went out on BF. Just to Wal-Mart at 12 am to get some of the Cricut lites for $20 and I had no problem getting the ones I wanted. There was only 2 other gals that were there to get anything. And only one to get an E. I got the Jolly Holidays, Twinkle Toes (I actually like it better than Shall We Dance!) and Four Legged Friends and.....................................
I grabbed a green E! I don't need one so I may be taking it back but I thought if it's there I might as well pick it up, you never know, lol! Well back to the challenge...................................... 
Now the challenge is to Use the Color Black and to Re-Cycle or Re-Purpose something and the usual to use at least 2 Cricut cuts from any cartridge and of course you need to be a Cricut Circle Member. Well I made McCade's Teacher's these, he has Two of them and I made them in traditional Teacher colors (well at least what I think of as traditional teacher colors, lol) These are a couple more of the cute little Sweater Pumpkins that I've been obsessed with lately. I used a Re-Cycled Black and White old sweater from the Hope Center (Thrift Store) and used the Wild Card for the tag and saying. I also added a tiny little Barrel of Monkey's (Re-Purposed) with a bow onto the tag. I added some of the Acorns from the Woods, some Pinecones and Silk Leaves some Shiny Floral Red Berries (all Re-Purposed) and then added a Gingham Red Ribbon. I sure hope they like them, With the traditional teacher colors they can leave them out all year. And hopefully Provo Craft will like them also and I'll win the challenge, lol! Now the 
following one I made for Pat, the Lady of the house where we had Thanksgiving dinner. It was made with a Re-Cycled Man's sweater also but it was a bit more rustic looking I think. I made the Burlap Rose and the stem was wrapped with Burlap also, I used some coffee dyed antiqued stringy fringe (looks better in person then in the pic) and also added a couple of felt leaves (cut from Doodlecharms) Acorns and a Pinecone. Pat loved it and put it on the table for part of the Center Piece! (I was going to do a tutorial on the Pumpkins but the one of the gals that I got the original directions from here had a fit about it and claimed they are her own design so if anyone wants directions from me drop me an e-mail and I will send you my directions, or you can check out hers, mine are a little bit different so it's up to you) Not Theresa at 612 Riverside, she also makes them and that's where I found them originally, she's a real sweetie and has a great blog so if you want some nice inspiration and love vintage goodies stop by her blog! I am also entering this in to the  challenge over at Frosted Design, The challenge is What your "Thankful" for, and I am Thankful that McCade has GREAT teacher's this year and we have wonderful Friends that include us in with their Family!

Well I sure hope if you all went to any of the Black Friday sales I hope you got everything you were looking for and got some really good deals, I got what I was looking for and McCade even found a video game he was wanting and he still had some B-day money so he got his game. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Thanks to all of you for all of the wonderful comments you all leave me, I am Truly Blessed to have so many wonderful Followers, Thank You!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa

This is just super creative!!!!!
and how funny... your tale about getting the Green E... reason I did not go near Walmart, because I would have just done the same (don't need one, but would have gotten one just because it was green!)
