SO-O-O-O Close!

Just a quick post to give everyone a (hopefully) last chance to leave a few more comments before the end of this blog candy.  It is getting very close now so if you want to put another entry into the contest, just leave a comment on the blog.  I thought I would just show another card from the Create and Craft show I am doing on Tuesday morning at 9am using the new movie and showtime stamp sets.  I had a bit of fun with this card.  I don't do shaped cards very often, but I thought what fun it would be to do a giant popcorn container complete with 3D pieces of faux popcorn on it. You should see them in real life, they look almost good enough to eat!  I have some fun demos lined up for the show, including one I'm calling faux granite that I came up with.

There have been a few comments left from followers that are outside the UK that have expressed interest in seeing the show.  Just to let everyone know, you can watch the show on your computer at http://www.createandcraft.tv/ but it is live so you will have to know what the time difference is and simply make the necessary adjustments for your area to view the program.  They do repeat most shows later in the day also.  You can go to their website and check on their tv schedule listing and find it at a more convenient time later in the day also.  All for now, Sue x

Cool popcorn. It would neat to be able to see your show from here in Canada, but I don't think my internet connection is up to live stuff; I have enough trouble loading video tutorials. If they ever post them for anytime viewing I will have to try then.
