  5. Dear Lindsay, thanks for another great card, whenever I make a card using a stamp or other product you’ve recommended my fellow Papermaniacs here in Tasmania always ask “Where did you get that from?” and my reply is always “from my friend Lindsay the Frugal Crafter!!!” I love your videos and style, so much fun, in particular never taking anything too seriously. Thanks for all the inspiration and frugal crafty tips. Keep ’em coming.

  15. Lindsay you have been my inspiration in starting watercolor paintings. I am a baby in this whole process but enjoying it very much. I enjoy making cards for people just because it makes them feel good and now I have been painting alot of them. I am not great, but you said go for it. It is my design if I don’t like it nobody needs to see it. I know it comes from my heart. I am not afraid of trying different things. My daughter said I use to be black or white and that I have came a long way since watching your videos.

I so miss the old videos where you would add the witty comments/text to the screen. Don’t burn your hands off! πŸ˜€ Love today’s cards!!! I have a marker spritzer by Crayola that is a pain in the butt cause you have to pump up this canister before you can “airbrush”, but I think it would work fine for just a card. Thanks for the inspiration… now if only I had a cool new stencil to use! πŸ˜‰

  43. Hi Lindsay, great video as usual. I haven’t read the other comments but a crows feet are called feet. They are not tallons. The tallons are on birds like eagles and hawks where they actually use their feet to grab things. Crows don’t grab things in flight. I loved your use of feathers. I have many MANY bags of feathers from our days of having and raising birds of all kinds.
