Fun with Lawn Fawn and my first video ever!

Hiya, I just returned from a trip and I thought it was time to post this card I made last month. I didn't take the last Online Card Class on rethinking your dies, but I gave my dies some thought and I even thought of a way to alter a stamp too. And while I was doing this thinkin' I decided I would film the creation of the card. Well, I make cards all the time- but not video's. In fact, this is my first video and editing adventure. I shared the video with friends and family.....so I've got a pretty good idea of all that not quite right with it.

Nothing like battling the sounds of dogs barking. So I lost most of the audio. I wrote in captions to explain what is going on and I scored some fun southwestern music to stamp to. Grab your coffee cup and relax, it's a 10 minute video. (yep, folks suggested its too long too.) But overall, it's a very cute card and I got to use ALL KINDS of 
Lawn Fawn Stamps and dies!
