A Floral Card VIDEO-from Start to Finish

Hello friends!
I guess I was on a kick with making videos lately...because I've got another one for you!
Every time I post a video, I want to go hide in a hole...I hope it gets better with time.
Sometimes I don't know how my You Tube video ideas came about, but when I am feeling super inspired, I love to share through videos!

I always tell my kids that "Practice Makes Perfect". So here I am-do things that I preach.
One funny thing I can share with you is that I experienced food poisoning during the taping of this video--no kidding! If you find my voice is not as enthusiastic and a little weak, you know why! I didn't know what was happening at the time when I made this video...I was feeling really tired and nauseous in between each take!! Thankfully, I recovered the next day.

Because I get a little nervous every time I post a video, I change the setting to public view about 3-4 hours before the post goes live. So if you are my You Tube subscribers, you get the preview!

Well, here is my labor of love!

This card gave me the idea of doing a video.
thanks a bunch

The is the card I made in the video.
just for you
I would appreciate that you give a thumbs-up if you find the video helpful in some ways.

By the way, did you see this new Layered Flowers STAMPtember release by Altenew and Simon Says Stamp? Quantities are limited, when they are gone, they are gone...so they say.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

So very pretty. I loved your video. It helped me to see your coloring process. I'm going to give this a go.

Great video, Virginia. The cards are beautiful. Thanks for the video tips on your coloring technique.

Thank you for your video, Virginia, the cards are wonderful. You really, really make me think Misti is necessary.

Both these cards turned out beautifully and that was a great video. Think perhaps your son is a bit impatient because I don't consider 8 minutes to long when I'm learning something. Which I have and did again from all your videos. Love the way you use your MISTI like an extra pair of hands. You're bout with food-poisoning didn't seem to rear it's ugly head during the filming, not that I noticed, anyway.
