Party Pandas "Hang in There" Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! We're supposed to get walloped with snow today - potentially up to 25cm! So I'm going to throw on my boots and bring in a few loads of wood for the stove. Then I'll be filming some more videos for you. I love making videos. The problem I have is a our internet connection - it's horrid. A 10 minute video can take up to 6 hours to upload (and that's after I compress it)! YIKES! This is the reason I haven't done any demonstrations on Facebook Live yet and I've been wanting to do that forever! I may attempt a FB Live demo, just to see how it goes - I'll let you know when. If there is a particular stamp set or technique you'd like me to make a video for, leave a comment and I'll see what I can do for you! In the meantime, I've got a card that is sure to make you smile today:

Isn't today's card just adorable? It was created by my friend Lisa Curcio for our Project Sheet group and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to share it with you!

  1. Thanks for sharing your friend's card. It is adorable, and I'm definitely going to get the panda set. My son is so in love with Pandas, he will stand outside in the snow watching the Pandas at the Toronto Zoo. He wrote the Zoo to thank them from getting them on loan from China and he received a nice reply back. Next thing he knows he received an e-mail from Prime Minister Harper thanking him for his interest and went on to explain the significance of having them on loan. Isn't that a cool story?

    Wow you are really getting walliped with snow. Stay warm and good luck making videos. I like them. Hugs.
