Now I must beg of you to look past the really bad photography and just assume that all these colors really do go together, because they really do in real life. I spelled that out, by the way (that one, too) because I am old, and every time I see acronyms in an email or a post I have to stop my brain and figure out what it means. I know most of my beloved three (or maybe four) readers are much younger than I am, and they get it, but still, I have to proof-read this thing, and I do not want to stop and translate my own writing, k?
So here we go:
In real life, these reds match. I used the Copic equivalent of SU Bravo Burgundy, but the Bravo Burgundy card stock was way too dark, so I hauled out some of the new Riding Hood Red, and it goes much better with the quilt. Really. I said you'd have to trust me on that one.
I could not decide which sentiment to use, so true to form, I did one of each. Here's my second one:
Blurry, I know. I think they have promise, but I dunno - they are a lot of work. And I do not sell a lot of holiday cards. And I am only doing two holiday shows this year (so far.) I guess this could be the card I send to people..... HAHAHAHAHA! ROTFLMBO! *snort* *snicker* Oh, yeah, like I'd even think of planning my holiday cards in September. Oh, hoo, he he, that is so funny.
(Oh, if you do not know what ROTFLMBO means, go look it up here.)
But seriously, I did finally mail the applications for the two local Holiday shows I do, and I hope to once again be accepted, embraced and acknowledged as having a product worthy of selling. Actually, so far no one else has been
stupid crazy enough to try and make a go of selling cards at a pay-for-a-spot show, so I am pretty safe at being the only card-monger there. It's funny when people stop by my booth and ask me how I am doing (translation: "are you actually making any money doing this?") I tell them I do it because I love it, and the Day Job pays for it. Then they take pity on me and sometimes they buy something.
That's all the news I have fit to type now. I think I'll go spend some quality time with kitty and go to bed early. I am reading a really good book (historical fiction - that King Charles II's court was one roudy time in English history!) and I have been staying up late and getting up late and getting to work late and hitting the ground running once I get there, and I am just too old for all of that silliness.
