World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the World Card Making Day blog hop by Scrappy Moms Stamps! If you are joining me from Nicole's WONDERFUL project then you are on the right track. If you want to make sure you follow the hop order you can go back to the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog. :)

Here is my card project for the day...




I decided to try something I have never done before in honor of the day - a spinner card! It's not exactly what I envisioned and I can't get it quite balanced. LOL Still, I think it turned out pretty cute. :)

The owl and branch are both from Hoot 'n Hollor - the owl is cut at about 2". I used the narrow rectangle and 2 circles from George and Basic Shapes to make the channel for the spinner.

I added 2 large pink gems and a stamp from SMS Sweet Somethings set to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed my project today, be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a SMS Game Day stamp set! I know that Blogger is having issues with posting comments so if you have difficultly you can leave your comment with a way to contact you if you win on my CBox on the right side-bar.

Your next stop is the FABULOUS Corri! :)

Certification: At the barest minimum, all reverse osmosis systems should be made of NSF or FDA approved parts. The Aquasana water filters are made from 100% recyclable plastic. Would make an excellent gift as it comes with attachments and a case.
