Thank you once again for visiting my Craft Room today...I really appreciate you dropping by for a visit. This card was a pleasure to prepare. I love the embedded embossing technique so much, so thus this card for you. It is in 2 parts, so, the second part will be up tomorrow morning, along with another wonderful technique using the stippling stencil art, with my new gold leaf set. We will use acetate, Gelato's, ink, texture paste, gold leaf, gold embossing powder, vellum, moulding paste, and last, but not least some vellum! I look forward to this card being complete, then on to card technique number 2....It sounds like a technique series to me...hahaha...See you in the morning, with lots of FUN idea's!

Thank you friends for joining me once again in my Craft Room. This is the second try at downloading this video!...I'm starting to think I'm not to do video's, just post pictures...lol! I think that the deep freeze we are in here in Ontario is affecting the internet lines...hahaha. Last Wednesday I had the same problem, and it was a sub zero day as well! Anywho, I mentioned on this haul that I was returning my wonderful Vagabond Electric Die Cutting machine, due to a terrible noise in the motor. I was a bit concerned whether I would be able to return it. Sometimes, when you have machinery, you have to mail it to the manufacturer to have it repaired. Well, if you own one, you know it ways a ton!...lol...I couldn't imagine the mailing fee!!! Long story short, I called Hobby Lobby in where I purchased it, and they told me they would honour my purchase, and they would have one set aside for me. I can't tell you how happy I was! I know I have a Big Shot, but this electric machine cuts through basically anything, without having to crank it. It would be impossible to crank that machine now, so I couldn't wait to go and get my new one today. My son drove me there, and patiently waited for me to get a little shopping in...lol...Hobby Lobby, in my opinion, is a wonderful, clean, organized store, where I shop. The kind staff goes out of their way to help, and make sure that you are a happy shopper! I did some browsing, shopping, and it only took a half hour. We were close to Michael's, so I shopped an extra hour to buy a couple of items on my wish list! We made it safely home, in white out conditions, and -25 degree temperature, and winds that were making the visibility at times a tad difficult! It didn't start out this way, but, as the morning went on, the weather worsened. I'm thankful it was a quick trip, and The Lord was watching out for us. After all, how could I go a day without my VAGABOND???....LOL

Thank you very much for joining me today. I just got in the door, after visiting my Doctor this morning. I now have medicine to help the healing process. The deep freeze here, made the roads extremely slippery, and the winds hit your face like a razor...I'm home safe, and will remain tucked away, until I see the Surgeon!..I managed to tape this video for you early this morning, so while I was out. it was downloading! All I could think of, was the computer shutting down AGAIN, and having to do this all over....lol...I had such camera problems, combined with computer problems on Wednesday, I wasn't sure I could take the disappointment of it not downloading for me once again.....smiles...I hope you enjoy the finishing touches on the LID I'm preparing for my sister's long awaited Birthday gift...lol...lol...Last Wednesday, I was looking in my pantry, viewing my shelves of cake supplies. I starting thinking of ways to combine the overload of cake supplies, into my overload of craft supplies, to put to good use, so many similar products. I love using texture paste in my Mixed Media, and my cards, so here are a few idea's that you may want to incorporate also. I'm going to try and do a few more video's showing a mix of CAKE SUPPLIES MEET CARDS!...Please enjoy this quick tutorial!
