Dutch Paper Craft Release

Hello everyone. I have no still photos of cards to share with you this evening, but I do have a video, if you are interested. I'm not sure if I mentioned on this blog or not that at the end of September, I somehow contracted a deadly virus on my computer and lost my entire drive. We are not sure how and exactly when I got it, but one morning I started having problems and by the evening, the virus had systematically taken over and destroyed all of my files and my entire hard drive. This was highly frustrating since, at the time, I had not one but THREE virus and malware programs running. Well, I ended up having to buy a new computer. The reason I'm explaining all of this is by way of letting you know that I lost photos and documents that were on my hard drive. I usually store photos and important data on several external drives, but had not had a chance to move August and September files to the external drives.

That brings me to the video and lack of still photos of my cards to share with you. Today Darlene Placito of Dutch Paper Crafts (for whom I'm one of the DT Members) released a set of dies and stamps for which I'd done the samples. Usually after Darlene takes the dies live via her blog and a video showing, we DT members share the still pictures of our samples and give you details of what we've done to make them. Fortunately, I did find the written information of what I did. Unfortunately, I didn't find any photos of my cards.

So, if you are interested and have an extra five minutes to spare, you can see the video of my cards on Darlene's  blog at (My release is the second video.)

And, if you do watch, here are the written details of my cards: (Thanks to a sweet friend whom I shared a few of my cards before mailing to Dutch Paper Crafts, I am able to share a couple of the cards shown on the video. Bless her heart, she kept my pictures and has sent them back to me.)
