Before we get to celebration season, I want to apologize for the video problems. I was notified this morning that the last two videos were marked private. I was surprised because on my end it shown public. However, for some unknown reason the publication button did not take. I do not check my playlist on You Tube. I go to what shows up on my blog. A fatal error on my part. So the Friday Card Fold Video is up and so is yesterday’s WOW Wednesday. Again sorry for this.
Now onto today’s card. You notice I said “a season to celebrate.” This time of the year we have graduations, people retiring, and birthdays as usual. Hence, season to celebrate. So keeping with the embellishment theme, I chose to use the Stampin’ Up! Expressions Natural Elements. These are wooden elements that add something to a card. It is perfect on that special card. These elements have Congrats, Thanks, plus the Celebrate all in one package.
