Enjoy Everyday Enjoy Life


This is a Monday Fast Card! I couldn't hold it until Friday, so I decided to share today. The longest step is heat embossing and die cutting, but once that's done, the card is basically finished. I really like the heat embossing of the wood grain background, so you may see this again soon! The heat embossing shows the texture of the wood grain, so its really effective. This is a very simple card and you can hand-write your own sentiment in the empty space.

This weekend was fun-filled. I got my eyes checked and picked out some new glasses. They won't be ready for a while, so I'll share a video-blog with you when they are so you can see them and tell me what you think! I usually only wear my glasses at work, but also on occasion when I'm crafting. They're exactly what I wanted, bold and fun!

I saw Obsessed and it is your new Fatal Attraction. It was entertaining, but no movie of the year. It's a good movie, but not necessarily a must-see at the big screen, but DVD, yes! Don't worry, I won't spoil the movie for you, you'll just have to see for yourself.

We also did another infant + family session and it was great! I'll definitely share the photos with you when they're done. I have such a fun time with McArthur on these shoots and meeting new people. You get a chance to step into the lives of others and see them in their best light.

Last, but not least, I picked up my new video camera!!! I videoed TWO recordings of cards already. It's very easy to use and has much better video quality than my previous camcorder. Although I didn't get the Flip Mino, I did get a comparable HD camera that is budget-friendly and effective for my recording purposes. I'll let you know what it is after I finish editing it and am 100% sure I want to recommend it!

Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!
