Twisted Ribbon Flowers!

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  It's a very exciting day for me!  I don't know if you saw but this week us Hero Arts Hostesses have taken over the Hero Arts blog this week!  For my day I made a video for the blog!  You can see it here.  So very exciting and terrifying at the same time!  Because I am a mom to two young kids I had to film it when they are asleep to have some quiet background noise!  By the time hubby and I got it all ready and figured out we realized the batteries were dead!  It was nearly midnight by the time it was filmed! This is my first ever video and to have it on the Hero Arts blog is crazy!  I can't tell you how it feels to hear the Hero Arts music and see the intro before my video!!!!  I thought it would be fun to do a bit of an intro at the beginning, fun and different!  Sadly when it was being uploaded to youtube there were some problems with the sound being on time so the quality was lowered to get it to work.  :<  But it's really not that bad still!  Phew I may have been a bit worried!!.  It was a true labor of love!  (At least it wasn't as painful as my other labors were, lol!!!)

I really hope that the video was clear and easy to understand for all of you!  I hope that I explained it properly and I hope I didn't come across as a total geek!  I kinda wanted to film it again but than I lost my voice!  I really hope you will make some twisted ribbon flowers!!!  I cannot wait to see what you create!

I also have some other quite exciting news, you can see it here.  How exciting is that?  I can't wait to be a guest designer for GCD Studios!

Here is the card:



I have been enjoying my time with the kids while Chad is gone!  Yesterday I dropped Ariel off at school and than Carter and I went over to a friends for a playdate.  After that Carter and I went shopping!!  And I found some crazy deals and bought a pair of pretend snakeskin flats and a dress.  I need a dress for a wedding in April and the first one I try on, and a crazy good price!  After I picked Ariel up from school we went to my parents for dinner!  Today we've gone to stay and play (play group) and are going swimming this evening with some friends!!

Hope your week is great hopefully if I get a chance I am going to create with the two leftover flowers from the video!!!!  :>
