Is it really Sunday already??

Wow! This week sure did fly by fast!!
Before I show you my card this week for the Robyn's Fetish Challenge, I wanted to take a second to tell you about my experience Thursday night at Target!
I have NEVER gone "Black Friday" shopping and to think that the stores were actually opening on Thanksgiving Day really bugged me just a little bit! But we went to visit my MIL and she saw some deals too great to pass up in their "Doorbusters" ad, so we braved the crowd to try our luck!

When we arrived at Target at 8:40, there was already a line halfway around the building and the security people were handing out slips of colored paper. Their explanation was: "When we open at 9, we're letting in 30 people at a time, in intervals, and we're separating the groups of 30 with these slips"... OK...
We found our place at the end of the line and at 9pm, the line started inching forward... a little bit at a time, we got closer to the front doors... by 9:06, we were inside the store!!
Nice and orderly, no pushing, shoving, trampeling, or chaos at ALL!!

All the "Doorbuster" items were in piles in the main aisle as we walked in the door and there were LOTS of each thing in the ad!! I snagged a deal or two (-:

The electronics department was roped off and there was a line to get in, but, again, it was very calm and orderly and it seemed like there were plenty of products to go around!

We got what we came for and went to check out. There was an employee at the end of the roped off cashier's area directing traffic along the back wall, through the grocery department and along the side wall... we found our place at the end of the line, and when we got to the check out area, there was a guy directing everyone to registers... We were out the door by 9:52!!

I couldn't believe how PLEASANT the whole experience was!

Three cheers for Target in Gates, NY (outside Rochester) for an outstanding experience!!
Thank you for having everything planned out and SO very organized and orderly!

OK... that's really all I wanted to say!!
Now, my card for this week:

The challenge at the Robyn's Fetish Blog this week is:

Black and White plus ONE other color!

Our sponsor is "Floppy Latte Designs"!

I got to work with "Love my Striped Bonnet"... I traced the image in E-CAL, then cut out the flowers in pink. This card took about 10 minutes to complete, from start-to-finish, but I love how it turned out!

OK, I'll admit, coming up with the "idea" took a little longer... but once I decided what I was going to do, it was done lickety-split! (-:

I used a sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy...

I hope you'll stop over to visit the Robyn's Fetish Challenge this week and join our Black and White plus One challenge!!

This is beautiful! The deep rose color is gorgeous on this image. Great design layout, too. Cute idea to have the button in the center of the bow.
Great job! Thank you!
