I Love Beads and Pins

Hi Everyone I hope you are having a wonderful week.
I went to my first garage sale of the season. Yeepee! I only got was a small bag of beads but that is OK because I know I will use what I got. I have been making pins to go on my cards and I am really having fun.
Last weekend I got the Tim Holtz Dress form diecut. When I got it home I was a little disapointed in the size.  It is a bit to big for an A2 card. I desided to use it right away.  I created a larger card for a special friend.
Here is what it looks like.
Now you have to watch the video to see what is inside. Sorry I like making videos. I am hoping that I will get better with practice.  The video also shows how I make the pins I am using on my cards.

I hope my creations motivate you today.

Thanks for stopping,
