  1. An impressive video....I loved it! Thank you for all the info and up-close look at your skillfully demonstrated work. The Post-It masking was intriguing to me as I always wondered how such a delicate look was achieve with just sponging. You are so generous to take the time to make a video so less skilled crafters, like me, can learn so much. Have a happy holiday season!

  2. You amaze me Marie, with every one of your video's! Love this technique. You make it look so easy. Lovely intro as well!

When I make your card I going to use your video on my blog so everyone will have the instruction for making one. I wish I thought of it when I made made my card yesterday. But I'm going to do it. We need to get more people over here.
    Hug, Pat
