Little Character Christmas Card 2 (CLA402b)





 Print out a PDF if you would like to see the supplies for this card or keep a reminder

My husband just left to buy groceries....voluntarily...My son got up one day early (I meant to say that) and took the garbage out (isn't supposed to go out til tomorrow)...yesterday he shoveled snow...and my youngest son washed dishes and took a shower!...it's the twilight zone!  I'm capturing this moment...embedding it in my brain...savoring the taste...burning it on my eyeballs....oh happy day!!  :P  These are the things we remember for all "the days of our lives!" 

And...here is the view outside of my workroom! Can you believe it?  Yes that is a church.
I'm feeling especially blessed today.

Now all I need to do to do the snoopy dance is eat chocolate cake and drink milk, while coloring and watching "Moonstruck".  Yup...

I kind of like the inside of this card and wish I had a huge Merry Christmas stamp for it...I would have made this the front of the card. It looks more fun and easier! (right Marian??) Why do I make things so complicated  (there's a song about that)

And...here is a video.  I just had to talk forever and point out every last thing so it's stupid long (60min)
I've learned however, that if I try to keep it short and not talk too much it takes 2 days to make...go figure!  I watched someone else's video that lasts 12 min, zero talking, double speed and with great music...loved it.  ...sigh. I'm thinking 40 min.  has got to be tops, you know?  Definitely shows you how to color a pot with a hedgehog in it...just what everyone wanted to know!  Ha!

Card Tutorial #3 - Little Character Christmas- Card 1 (CLA402a)




Would you like to print out the supply list for this card?  Sometimes having a binder full of ideas gets your inspiration going, and next thing you know...you taking your stamping supplies out!


I also created a PDF for the "Season's Greetings" top white mat of the card.  This is because I didn't feel like I had a greeting stamp that "looked" like the Christmas bird.  There are four correctly sized mats to cut out and use if you can't find something suitable either.



I'm dying to make an inchie card all of a sudden!  What the Hey? - Why is that?  I think it's because I suddenly realized I'm thrilled to be able to do what I am doing right now.  I've always thought my happiest life would be realized when I was back to owning a store "where I belong".  It's taken me almost 3 years to feel that I could be happy being only online, and being electronic.  Wanting to do an inchie card and looking forward to making a video and a blog about it, is a big step.  Making a decision to fall in love with it, rather than having an instant attraction - is definitely a factor here.  Still don't like facebook, and I can't bring myself to twitter or link...but you got to start somewhere!

So as part of my genius plan for world cardmaking domination, I've created a video to go with this card, a printable supply list and a pdf for your printing pleasure.  I've also been creating a website that will allow you to purchase any supplies you might need to complete this card!  We are hopefully only 2 or three days away from launching it.  It's not large...but as the video library grows and I add more and more product to the website, I'm hoping that I can create a fun online place to be for hanging out with our mutual hobby!  :)
