My First Birthday Spinner Card! I figured it out on my own!




After hopping around a lot of different blogs, looking at these adorable spinner card, I just had to make one myself. No matter how much I search or asked no one was willing to share the instruction with me. Well if you knew me the way my family does, then you would understand how when I have something in my head, I just have to do it! So I did it!



All the materials I used were from my scrap box which makes it a even a better card. One of my friends was over the other day and she was helping me sort my scraps and she picked up this tiny piece of paper that must have been maybe 1 inch by 1/2 inch and she said to me you have got to be kidding! But I just hate to throw my precious paper away! LOL!




The cartridge I used was Create a Critter, you have to love that sweet little bird! It is not the first card that I have done with this cutie! I used both My Pink Stamper Stamps and Joys Life Stamps. I added a pretty ribbon, a few buttons and I could not forget to add a bit of bling.




So I found a new Challenge blog to me , it is called Party Time Tuesday for their challenge you must make a birthday card and you must include a birthday greeting. This was easy because my grand daughter is turning six next month and she is just going to love this card.

The second challenge is for my dear friends Paula over at More Than Favors For her Wacky Wednesday Challenge you are to use your create a critter cartridge.

I love all the different challenges out there, they keep my mind sharp and give me something to look forward to. I thank all you girls out there that put on the challenges, you are all doing a amazing job!
