Wishing You...

Happy Friday, card lovers!!! I don't know about you, but I am so ready to start my weekend! No big plans, my husband has to work tomorrow, so it'll give me a good chance to catch up on some of my shows and clear up some space on the DVR. I love me some Housewives! Especially Beverly Hills, OC, New York, Miami, DC. Am I forgetting any? I never really can get into ATL or NJ. I do also love Bethany Ever After! Anyone else watch these guilty pleasures? I also have a small order from Ellen Hutson waiting at home for me, so I look forward to playing with some new goodies, as well! Very fast shipping! I placed my order on Tuesday around 4:30 pm. I got a shipping notice within an hour and my package arrived Friday morning in Mississippi, all the way from Washington! It was my first time shopping there, but it won't be my last!
Anyway, on to my card! My friend and co-worker asked me to make a card for her niece, who is turning 12 tomorrow. So, I thought it would be a good excuse to give a Spinner card a try!

It really spins well using the coasters that PTI sells! I also cut the big butterfly with a coaster, and gave him a couple layers of a smaller butterfly cut out of vellum, and embossed in polka dots, and the assembled butterfly was misted with Studio Calico Shine, to give it some sparkle. It was a lot of fun to put together and I definitely need more stamps that will work well for 'spinning'!
I snapped this picture quickly this morning, so I didn't get a chance to capture the inside which says, "a birthday that's as special as you".

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

LOVE this. I don't know why I never thought of the spinner with a butterfly. Duh--I've been doing everything else with them. This is so colorful and fun, and, as the mom of a 12 year old, I know it will be perfect. I like how you made your butterfly, too. Embossed vellum--genius.
