Hey Jeannie, I love both ways that you are doing your videos. I just think it is great that you are doing these. I know that everyone else feels the same way. Such a great card too.

I'm not much help either. I like both ways. I'm just happy to see a video of how you put things together. Your eye for detail is awesome. My husband was listening to your video as I watched and he was amazed that you knew that the handle of a rod had a grip!

Sharon said...

Well, I'm afraid I'm with everyone else, I love them either way! You are just so talented and I'm so glad that you decided to do these videos that I'll take them whichever way you want to do them!! This card is just perfect for a man. My BFF's Dad is an avid fisherman and he would so love this card!! :)

Nisson Family said...

Love the card! It is a perfect mans card! Great job. Thanks for the inspiration!


Pauletta said...

It's unanimous. I also like both ways go do the videos. Thank you for sharing your techniques. I am going to scraplift this card. It is perfect for my husband and my father. Thanks again for sharing.

Yay, wonderful! You can do no wrong.... in the paper world, you rock. :0) Thanks for all you do to make people so happy!!

Sandy Bayles said...

This is such a great card. I love the fishing.. I entered a challenge on Pink Stamper. I did some of her Challenges on National Scrapbooking Day. Of course no chance of winning but I did it for fun. I posted it on my blog along with pictures of my garden. Take a walk in my garden if you get time.

I finally found some time to reply! I just came back from a holiday a couple of days ago, and look at all the amazing things you made!! Great great stuff!

Patti said...

Love this! You always seem to make a card that I can use just around the time I need one! I am going to try to copy for my father for father's day, if you don't mind. I can never do you justice, but will give you all the credit!

Janis said...

This is a great "man" card. I always have trouble w/ these, no matter how many "man" things I put on it, It still comes out looking "girly" You used the perfect color combo. very nice card

Like others, I am no help! :) I just love watching your videos. Keep up the great work and the great designs. :)

CraftsManda said...

Hi Jeannie! I love, love, love this card and I think all of your videos are super helpful. I love the way to explain things and it's so great to see how you put everything together. Thank you so much for giving me such inspiration!

Alice said...

HI Jeannie
OH i have been so horrible....hahaha crazy busy so I didn't get a chance to put a comment until now.
Brought lunch to work so I could watch your videos during lunch.
Great job on the card! Love how this card came together....
I tried ice fishing once and almost went through the hole chasing after my fish...bad if i did fall through but a funny story if i did =)

As for the videos....I think that you are doing a great job....I think that both ways are great =)
The only thing is that i know that you bring things up to the camera....maybe zoom the camera in so then it's not as hard on your hands... =)

Always so much fun watching your video =)
Off to the next one...
THis is much better than watching soap opera with my lunches =)

Pauline said...

I am new to scrapbooking/card making(since Nov 2009), so I wasn't aware of your blog until I saw your card in the cricut chirp. But, I am so glad I found your site! I am in awe of your creativity! I love your videos, and I am so happy to hear a southern accent! (I live in Mobile, Al) I also noticed that you didn't use the words "so super cute" anywhere in your videos...thanks (getting pretty darn tired of that phrase)!! LOL Please keep making videos!

CutAndGlue said...

Wow! Your cards are truly works of art!!! You have such an amazing gift, thanks for sharing it with all of us. My prayers are with you, take care.

Jessica said...

Hey Jeannie, I love your video's. I don't think it really matters which way you make them. They have great instructions either way. I love what you did with the Campin out cart. It was one of my first cartridges. It and Walk in my garden! I always love to see how different people use the same cuts! Thanks again, Jess
