I’m a little bit disappointed that only a few viewers have asked for me to send them one of the cards I made. It’s not that I think my cards are exceptional, I just hoped that viewers would find one that they might like to have as their very own. I probably should have made the offer earlier in the video, as they probably fast forwarded and didn’t hear the offer. I did add a message under the video, as well as on Facebook, to let people know about it after I posted the video..
Today I decided I had to get serious about my St Patrick’s Day cards. I wanted to make one with a pair of sunglasses with huge shamrocks attached that I bought at the Dollar Tree…They were perfect when I paired them with an old song that starts out, “I’m looking over a four leaf clover that I overlooked before….” The song came to me when I was trying to sleep last night, so I got up and wrote it down so I wouldn’t forget, and then I still couldn’t sleep, so cleaned my craft room a little more. It’s getting to the point where I’m not embarrassed looking inside as I walk by the doorway. I used to keep the door closed, as it was so horrible to look at. At least now I can leave the door open without feeling bad about it’s condition….one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind….
The second card I made came from a YouTube channel called Mixed Up Crafts. I love all of the ideas Sam, the crafter from that channel, makes. She’s very talented and does a lot of three-D projects as well. The card I’m making is called a Pull and Slide Card and here’s a link to her video. I recommend her and her channel highly… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWY-lF1Ua0I I’m going to do a collaboration with Rebecca Walton from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, the peg stamp company where we both make a pull and slide card and both use some peg stamps on our card. I finished both cards tonight and am really happy with the results. I hope all of you will be too.
