mala fide: adverb or adjective


with or in bad faith
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Die Cuttin Divas - Challenge #100, Anything Goes
 
This is what I call "local flavor" cards that I make to keep in the Art MoB. They do fairly well, and I don't have to have a tremendous lot of them on hand, but I am always happy when I need to make more to fill in my inventory because that means they are selling. I go into the gallery once a week, to count cards, make notes as to what needs to be replenished.

I distressed the edge of pattern paper with the back of my scissors and lifted up the ducks and the banner with Liquid Scrap dots. I like to keep my cards less bulky as I never know if my customers are mailing or hand delivering them, so I err on the side of flatter is better. I don't want them having any surprises when they go to mail their card and regretting their decision of buying a handmade card and accusing me of mala fide in increasing the cost of their purchase.

your card looks great...even better is knowing you have found a bread and butter item for the Artmob. Nice to be able to count on certain sales!
