Last Feature Friday of November...

Can you believe that the new year is almost here. I can remember when everyone was so worried about what the year 2000 would bring. Now it's almost 2011. Wow!
Well, enough trivia. Let's get down to what you came for. LOL! Welcome to our latest Feature Friday Challenge. It's really a fairly easy challenge this week. While we didn't have too many join this week, it means that those who did, have a better opportunity to win! We hope more will join in this week. The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate from The Character Cafe's Shop.
This week all you need to do is to again use some natural (or neutral) color and this week we'd like to see some glitter/sparkle. See, not to difficult.
Now, let's take a look at what the lovely ladies on the DT have to show you this week.

We hope you have a great weekend and that you get to all of the Black Friday Sales that you want to, from all of us at TCC.
