Today's Teriffic Tuesday's Challenge Birthday Card

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday.  Well I have been busy this week and not with niceys (I don't think that's a word).  I have never minded growing older cause it is all in the plan.  I usually try to do it gracefully and embrace all the new chapters in my life.  Well here comes another one.  I am not sure I am ready for the parts replacement chapter but that is what is happening.  Need a new knee.  This week I have been going to MDs and getting all the tests for medical clearance.  Blah.............................. I want to get in some crafting between appointments, but they don't care about coordinating for my sake.  Oh well.  I did get this card made for the Terrific Tuesdays challenge over at Scrappy Moms.  I don't have B is for Boy or Sugar and Spice but I do know there is a wagon on Sugar and spice so I used the one from Create a Critter.  I love the way it came out.  What do you think?

A2 size card
Blue cardstock from Stampin Up
All the rest is from my scraps
Wagon cut at 3 1/2 inches
I put glossy accents on the wheels and handle to give it some dimension
The packages are just scraps cut to different sizes and decked out with ribbon.
Cute huh?
Well I am off to play with my camera and try to make a video.  I am still having trouble getting the right angle.  I have the flip and a 50 inch tripod.  Janice over at http:// uses this, but I don't know how she gets the angle from behind her.  Anyone got suggestions?  Thanks
See you nice

    p.s. When I film a video, I put the tripod in front of me and my arms go around the tripod. (I hope that makes sense.) It's kind of awkward at times, but once you get the hang of it - it's not so bad. Christina from Creations with Christina has a really neat attachment for her tripod that allows the camera to actually be over her head. I believe she did a post about it a few months ago. Hope that helps!
