And the Owl Spins.....

Yeah, I got to create today.
I made 3 cards but am only going to show you one of them, or it would be to picture heavy.

Remember the owl I made yesterday? Well here is why I bought the punch.
I wanted to make some spinner cards with it, for Card Cupids.
I love spinner cards they are so fun. I figured the kids that receive them would enjoy playing with them.
So here is my first card. I made this all with scraps, even the card base is from my scrap pile. Yeah I have a big pile of papers.
I put together a collage of pictures to show you how the spinner card looks in action. The owl just spins back and forth.
If you want to try one of these spinner cards I made a tutorial on my YouTube channel.
A simple sentiment :)The inside of my card, my underwear shot, lol.
I need some help on the inside sentiment (not that you guys were any help with the last one, lol).
On a frog card, I wrote "hopping by to say HI". On a butterfly card I wrote "Fluttering by to say HI".
I have no idea on what to write on this one. Maybe it will come to me tomorrow......or tonight in my dreams :) Kristy made her pretzels again today. Her sister Ashley and Ashley's boyfriend Tyler formed the dough to make Kristy's name. How sweet.
As for those asking where Kristy gets her baking skills from, as I don't like to cook. I know you may be surprised but I do enjoy baking. I think it's because I love sweets :) Wayne wanted Kristy to use the Kitchen Aid mixer that he bought me one year, to kneed the dough. Well she didn't want to use it. So he did a batch of his own.
He called me upstairs to take pictures of his pretzel's, lol.
I was frustrated creating today, as I wanted to watch Super Natural while I was in my scrap/craft room. So popped it into my laptop watched it for about 25 minutes and then it froze. Keep trying it, but still didn't work. So got hubby's old laptop and tried again... yup froze again. Grrrr. I usually don't watch anything while I create in there.
Finally I had to skip it a bit, then it went again. After I watched "Nightmare Before Christmas" and "9".
I keep wanting to catch up on my YouTube video watching, but I can't seem to do that, as I want to pay better attention to the video's. I can watch movies though.

Hope you got to create today, and have a wonderful weekend.



  1. Love your spinner cards! I still haven't tried making one yet, I'll get to it eventually :0) Here are a couple of owl sentiments I have found...
