Summer fun!!


Am I the only one who feel like this summer is just flying by!!!  I hope you're getting in some summer fun!!  We would probably be at Six Flags today if my dryer wasn't broken. :(  So instead of riding roller coasters, I am waiting for the repair man to show.   But that's ok if it means I don't have to go the laundromat.  With 6 people in our family, we make piles and piles of laundry!!!   Will you feel sorry for me if I tell you that my vacuum is also in the shop?   No problem... if I can't clean, I might as well craft!! ;)

Back to summer fun... here's a birthday card I made for a boy who LOVES to swim!!!  


It's a spinner card!


I kept the design simple so nothing would 'catch' while he was spinning.  I did stamp and emboss tiny dots to make it look like water drops...



Supplies...
~DCWV paper 
~boy from accessories from Everyday Paper Dolls
~Peachy Keen Character Face Assortment
~TPC Studio sentiment 
~baker's twine


Challenges...
Fantabulous Cricut #172 - "make a splash"
Cut It Up #24 - Celebrate summer + die cut
Peachy Keen 13-31 - anything goes (must use PK stamp)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!  I hope to be back with more creations later today.  I spent most of last week sewing  things that HAD to get done, so paper crafting was low(er) on my priority list.

This is super cute, Debbie. I haven't made a spinner card is eons, but the kids just love them. You may have inspired me to give it a shot since I have some children's birthdays coming up pretty soon.
Blessing hugs,

That little guy is going to LOVE THIS CARD! So super cute & clever!

It's kind of nice to have a real, genuine reason for not cleaning :) Mine is generally just that I don't feel like it, lol. That said, I feel your laundry pain (that one would definitely hit me the hardest) and hope it's a quick & easy & inexpensive fix!

Debbie your spinner card is fabulous, oooh what a great card to give a child, they would love this! If you manage to find a way to slow down the passing of summer let me know, it seems like it just started and bam, fall is just around the corner:O(
Horrible thought..
