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.
