Black Friday!


*discount cannot be used for Gift Certificates

Here is the last of our November DT projects.

Laura created this pretty tag using Tag Scallop die and Snowflakes dies.  The pearls add the perfect accent :)


Karolyn used our Quote Tag die along with Little Lovin 2 dies.  I love that she chose patterned paper with phones it it - how clever!!  Change up the color to blues and this would make a perfect card for a boy too.  LOVE that!!

There are a few stories about why the day after Thanksgiving is called “BlackFriday.” The one I’ve heard most often is that Black Friday kicks off the Christmas shopping season which can actually push a store’s finances from being in the red (losing money) to black (profit). Recently, I’ve learned that the phrase “BlackFriday” was first used Philadelphia in 1966 to describe the crowds and traffic jams outside the downtown stores the day after Thanksgiving. The mob of shoppers was similar to the people crowding the streets after the market crashed on September 24, 1869 – the original “Black Friday.” The phrase became more popular in the mid-1970s as police, busdrivers and cabdrivers use it in reference to the headaches all the shoppers jaywalking and crowding the sidewalks caused them.
