                Was chatting to my SIL Barb last night she was working some cards and gave me the idea to look around and create a card to so here it is
It is what they call a spinner card the little van you see spins from side to side
in the that curve slot you can see.
Friends are moving and I wanted to create a card for them
I flocked the clouds with white and the trees with green
I printed the layout of house on to the card then did another copy
so I could colorand raise the houses.
this is Marlene and Bob in their van with some boxes and heading to their new home.
Again van is from a coloring page and I colored.
 
We have had a chance to visit the grandkids up north
one of my grand daughters likes to make cards ..
so when I got home I put together a box of stuff for card making and sent it up.
 
Here is her first 2 cards with some of the stuff...
birthday cards for her cousins

 good start Jordy ...love them

2 Challenges

        OK what started out has to do a challenge got me doing two other cards with their idea...
                       the challenge I had first chosen was Tuesday Morning Sketches
 
and thought maybe just maybe I could combine the 2 challenges
I loved the layout that Tuesday Morning had ..I must say It was a bit of a challenge
doing the Pink, White and  Silver
but here is my try at putting the 2 challenges together

just to show the card a bit open ...front paper is front Echo Park
the pink back is just a foil I had that it would give me that pink look.
Now this challenge from Tuesday Sketch got me to thinking and
well here are a couple of the cards I made up

took me a while to get the golfer and the card shape together then I cut it out
with my Cameo
just added a few items to get that golf course feel ...
then this card the little girls on the card are a Micheal Recollection item
the paper flowers scraps I really wanted the feel of a vine of flowers growing on a lattice

the paper I found was not really lattice but it gave me the look any ways
What do you think ?
 
Please stop by these two challenges and give them a try .
Have a great week.
