I haven't forgetten you!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have not forgotten them.  I decided to take on a HUGH project this summer.  Cleaning, sorting, and purging my attic.  Ugh!  But the only place there was to do this was my craft room. 

Well right now I am getting Crafting Withdrawal so I will be back at it very soon. 

I will also be working on another blog at the same time.  Sewing with the Cricut.  Can't wait to get going on that.

My First Video

Hello Everyone!!!!

I finally did it.  Last January I filmed my first video.  Yes, it has taken this long to learn my video editing software.  Well, not really learn it.  I got frustrated with it and I couldn't find the information I needed.  So for months I have been watching YouTube videos on different card and techniques.  At the beginning of last week it dawned on me...."Duh!  If I watch videos to learn about card making, why can't I watch videos to learn my software".  So I did.  

Here is the results of my first video.  I will be doing more in a couple of weeks.  I have visitors coming and they are staying in my Craft Room.  Along this learning process I discovered, I do not like the video camera that I used.  I will be using my bigger camera, so hopefully the picture will come out better.

Thank you for watching and please leave me a comment.

Thank Ewe Card

I decided to make a "Thank you" card for my son's last day of Kindergarten.

Here is how it turned out...

This is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.  

Papers are from DCWV & Imaginisce.  

Sheep & Barn are from Create-A-Critter.  The sheep is cut at 2", the barn I think was 2 1/2".
Pink stickles where added to her nose.
