Another "Bazaar" Weekend

I've been spending my days this weekend at America's Largest Christmas Bazaar in Portland, OR, and I am thoroughly exhausted at the end of each day. I've learned a few things, too. My best selling cards are my 3x3 gift cards. I cannot keep enough of them on the table. It helps that I sell them "Buy 2 Get 1 Free", I think. But also, they are perfect for packages, and this time of year there are a lot of packages going around!!

But enough about that...

Today I am very excited to introduce our new Design Team member, Audrey, over at 365 Cards. She is very talented and we are thrilled to have her on board!


Here is the sketch for today:


Does it look funny? Well, it should because I flip-flopped it so you can see how my card actually came from the sketch. And here is the card:



I really wanted an excuse to use up some of the Core'dinations paper I got to play with for an event over at SNR Magazine. (If you want to see what all the staffers did with the Core'dinations paper that was so generously given to us to play with, stop by here.) I used it to create the snowman's body from the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge. Then I did some sanding around the edges, and I distressed the edges of the white and yellow cardstock.
And if you have some time to play along at 365 Cards this week, we'd love to see what you create!

What a cutie snowman! I just got a small packet of the paper from another DT I am on. I have played with some of it before, but this is the kind with the white core.

That snowman is so adorable! Good for you for making a sale! Will keep in mind about 3x3 cards!
