Video-Sizzix Birds in Bloom

I've been having such trouble with video the past few days. Tried HD sent it back, tried another HD, returned that. Last night my husband said, "why don't you try the regular camcorder" and it worked great. Check out my latest video. Make sure to click on watch in high quality it is so much better. Like I said I got the video to look good, but now the volume isn't loud enough. Need a new Microphone.
This card would be great as a wedding, birthday, or a shower card.

I used the Birds in Bloom Sizzix die, whisper white cardstock. blush blossom cardstock, designer paper from the sale-a-bration catalog, whisper white organza ribbon and the scallop edge punch.

I've had the Paper Pups Cartridge since I got my Cricut over a year ago and never used it. When I asked Ethan what he wanted on his Valentine's for school he said "A Dog". I finally got to use the cartridge and really love how these Valentine's came out. Not too much and not too little. I made 30 this afternoon while my hubby was down cleaning out the basement. Our treadmill was in my parents garage for over a year and yesterday I decided it was time to get my butt in gear.

I used the sizzix top note die, Paper Pups cartridge, and punched out the from: with Stampin' Up! 3 heart punch
