CPS #180

I forgot to mention this story yesterday. I was at A.C.Moore and overheard a conversation between a shopper and a store clerk. The shopper had gotten the store ad in the paper a day early, so the deals she was looking for didn't actually start until today. She sounded and appeared very cross. She made comments like "Well, I made a special trip to the store today" and "I have been a loyal customer...can I talk to your supervisor?" I dunno, I didn't particularly have a lot of sympathy for the woman. The ad clearly says that the deals start today. It's not anyone else's fault (nor should anyone have to accommodate her) because she missed that important detail.

Anyhoo, I was definitely on a Christmas kick today. I cranked out about 18 origami Santa cards. I figured it'd be a good idea to start a box of cards for the craft fairs dedicated solely to Christmas cards. So I continued the holiday theme with my take on CPS sketch challenge #180. I added in the "grass" in order to ground the reindeer, instead of having them look like they are floating in the white space. I like that I was able to use scrap pieces of paper, and that the card didn't require a lot of elements to make it look complete. :)

very cute & festive!

I worked in retail for years and had a woman wander through the entire store with an expired ad. The manager said she could have one item at the expired prices. Of course, I was the one who had to keep saying "no, that is no longer on sale." She seemed to expect me to thank her for the full cart of items I would then get the 'pleasure' of restocking...

I tried to use a coupon that didn't start until the day after at Happy Harry's once - and felt super silly (not mad) for not noticing the fine print! Some people are unbelievable.

Super cute card, btw. :D
