For just "pennies apiece", bwah ha haaaaaaaaaa!  You can make these adorable spinner cards!  Once the power came back on, I couldn’t wait to do this design which had been rolling around in my head (for a few weeks, but life just got too hectic to sit down and do it!) for A Muse’s new globe image–I must confess, I think the globe is my absolute favorite of all the images in the Valentine 07 release.  I wonder if I could use my powers of influence (wink!) on Linda and convince her to produce yet another sentiment stamp to go with it . . . "You’re outta’ this world!"  Wouldn’t that be cute?  She did do one that says, "You mean the world to me!", and I like that saying, as well.

Anyhoo, when you tilt the card from one side to the other, the globe spins along that channel from one end to the other–very fun and interactive! I’ve watched adults sit there and play with them just as much as the little ones do! LOL!

Now, if you don’t know HOW to make a spinner card, you’re in luck t’day, kidzzzzz!  There’s a nice tutorial over at www.splitcoaststampers.com that has full step-by-step instructions, complete with photos.  Just visit this link:  Spinner Card Tutorial by Cambria Turnbow, stamper extraordinaire, Queen of all things Pink, and one of the original Dirty Dozen Design Team Members.  She explains it so nicely, there is no sense reinventing the wheel (literally!!!). (very big grin and lots of chuckling!)

I simply *had* to use my new Red Tag Sale alpha dies for this, so I Xyroned (Xyron is a brand name of sheet adhesive that is applied with a Xyron machine.  If you don’t have one, you can simply purchase adhesive sheets in packages or use spray adhesive–I’m very sensitive to the fumes, so I much prefer the Xyron) plum pink paper to white coasters and then die cut the letters I needed.  I love the added dimension it gives, but it’s very lightweight!  The tag, which serves as the letter "o", is elevated with 2 layers of foam tape to give even more dimension to the piece.

Now, go dig out those pennies and get busy whippin’ up some spinner cards of your own! (wink!)

Christmas Surprise!

Those of you that took the A Muse-a-thon Holiday Classes at Precious Memories in Langley BC with me back in August, may remember this design.  The little elf guy is *perfect* to have poppin’ up out of a box!  A little swirl of deep pink Shimmer Pastels rosies up his cheeks–I didn’t even color in the rest of him!

I wish you all a happy, joyous, and safe holiday, surrounded by those you love!

She liked 'em!

A fun and goodly happening:   I was very flattered to receive an email from Jennifer McGuire, who requested permission to "lift" some designs I had uploaded over at 2 Peas, to be showcased as her "user inspiration" (link above) on the 15th in the Garden Girls Gallery.  Of course, I lost power on the 15th, and totally forgot until today to go see her finished projects!

Absolutely delightful!

I do feel like a moron, though . . . (rolling eyeballs). . . when she initially emailed me to ask, she used her 2 Peas userid, and, good grief, if I didn’t scroll down far enough in the message to see her *real* name . . .  And, I wasn’t quite sure what a "lift" was (I don’t scrap!), so, I told her I couldn’t say yes or no, until I knew what a "lift" was . . . (more rolling eyeballs and smackin’ myself on the forehead)  And, criminy!  Everybody knows who Jennifer McGuire is, and I felt like a total idiot once I figured out who exactly was emailing me . . . ppppffffffffffftttttt!!!

Anyhoo, this was just a happy and fun thing that happened to me, in "a day in the life" of a MORON!!!!!!
