Spinner Cards

What a fun card to try! My craft buddies were all over this technique!:

I see there are lots of cute cards in the link already!
I played with the heart/valentine theme.

I first thought of the cute arrows in the Clipsters set:

Then I thought a spinning envelope valentine would be sweet:

Here's a hello from my backyard visitors today:

Here is our lovely photo inspiration for this month

I don't think I could eat these! They are so pretty and I know the time put into them as well.

But I can be inspired by them:

I did an element with more pinks too...haven't quite figured out what it's card layout should be yet...maybe I will be inspired by one of your creations today and finish it!

Here is a card from one of my craft buddies:

Somedays having kids in the craft room takes extra patience, but I know one day I'll have more time to make things but my craft buddies will be gone and I will miss them. So I say an extra patience prayer and enjoy our time together.

Have a great hop!




This week was a neat technique that is simple to try and fun to see the results!
My craft buddies are trying it out right now.

Here was my 'playtime' results:

I had fun with blues and greens.

I should go prep for school, but I want to craft with my buddies!
Have a great week,

2016 A La Carte

 I didn't get to try
 the first time around. So I made a fox die-cut stencil and planed on blending a soft winter glow around it. Then things got dark and crazy and I got this instead:

A back ground with circles, water dots, and snowflakes! I wanted an arctic fox. So I embossed the fox in white on velum and placed some foam squares behind him so you could see his face.

Leaves, berries, and a sentiment finished my card.

 I wouldn't say I 'nailed it' as far as the technique goes, but I the end result was a sweet card.
