I have sold 150 - 200 cards this Christmas season. Different cards. Pretty cards, cute cards, funny cards... The best seller, by far was this one:

Supplies Used:
Paper: Natural White for card base, Always Artichoke (SU!), Whisper White (SU!), DP (can't remember which one)
Ink: Basic Black (SU!
Stamps: Mudzy's Predicament (High Hopes)
Other: dimensionals (SU!), Prisma pencils, baby oil, paper snips (SU!), craft knife.

This card makes me laugh. Or, it used to... I couldn't imagine anyone really doing this. It could only happen on Christmas cards and in movies like Fargo or such... Until yesterday. We took the kids up to Grouse. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a blast. We threw snowballs at each other, slid down the hills on our bums, saw Santa and his reindeer. At the end of the day we were exhausted. While waiting for gondola to take us off the mountain, my two sons were standing and watching the trees over the fence separating us from a gondola. We were behind them talking to our friends. Next thing I know, Milan, my older son, turned to me to ask me something and I thought I would faint. At first I didn't know what happened, all I saw was this bloody mess on his face. As he saw my face, he got scared and started crying. It took me a second to realize that he "pulled a moose" on me. He put his lips on the fence while watching the forest. Well, good part of his lips stayed on the fence. Lesson learned. Today he is doing his show and tell in kindergarten - he will show them his lips and tell what happened so no one else would ever do it. :-) Too bad he was too upset for me to take his picture and scrap it.

Blog you later.

Over the last couple of weeks I received few blog blings that I didn't have time to do anything about. Well, here they are, all three of them:

This one I received from Loretta Rogers:

Thanks Loretta!

The rules say I should give this to 5 people and link to them. As I have to list more people for the other blings, I would probably need about 20 people. Instead, I will leave this to all of you who come to my blog, you all deserve it for putting up with me. Lol.

The next one is

I received it from Katherine Cosimano. Thanks Katherine! I did this back in the summer, maybe August... If you go to the older posts, you'll find it,

And the latest one was

from Tenia Nelson. I am very thankful Tenia!

Many thanks to you all for taking time to stop and look at my work.

OK, let's get on with a card...

The photographs are not the best today, I don't have time to redo them though. I started with (again) natural white for a card base. I apologize, I can't remember which designer paper is the one I used, I have a feeling it is one of the Heidi Grace designs. Anyway, that was matted on Blue Bayou and pierced. The snowflakes were done in embossing resist on Soft Sky with Pacific Point ink, and again, matted on Blue Bayou. I put a crystal brad by MM in the middle of each and mounted them on a piece of Whisper White matted on... guess... yes! Blue Bayou! "Marry Christmas" was stamped in Versamark and embossed with a Detail Silver embossing powder. This will be one of the cards we will do for my Technique class. Here is the list:

Supplies Used:
Paper: Natural White for card base, Blue Bayou (SU!), Whisper White (SU!, Soft Sky (SU!), Heidi Grace DP
Ink: Pacific point (SU!), Versamark
Stamps: Snow Swirled (SU!), "Merry Christmas" Stampendous
Other: crystal brads (MM); dimensionals (SU!), paper piercer, silver embossing powder, sponges, clear embossing powder.

Blog you later.
