Watch Me Wednesday :: Boo Halloween Card

That's right, Bleeps, you read it right! My "Watch Me Wednesday" series is back! I've been dying to start a weekly VLOG post sharing my card making process with you all. Over the months, I encountered a few problems with my video cameras, but recently purchased a new one and finally cleaned my area enough to start videoing! I am hoping to record a new video every Wednesday, but don't hold me to it! As you know, sometimes time gets all in the way of everything and then runs out. So, I did not want to say anything to you all until I was sure enough ready to start! I even have next week's card already sketched out! I'll keep this up as long as you all like it, so let me know if you're still interested!

As a side note, this week's video is a bit yellow and not true to color. Working on my lighting issues and learning my new camera. Hoping to have a better picture next week! :)

Now, onto today's card...another Halloween theme (yep, I know it's 2 months early, but I'm trying to create a pattern here and be ready for Christmas early this year)!


Please watch how I created it here.

What a great card! I love those Graphic 45 halloween papers, I picked up a few myself. And I love those cute stickers on your card, just the right touch of sparkle!

Besides the great card, great video! I love seeing how people make their cards and their thought process. Especially a great designer like yourself! Thanks for making the video!
