Pinwheel Card

*Click HERE for my 1 year Blogaversary giveaway!*

Hi there!  Today I'm sharing a card that I'm entering in a few challenges.  I'm entering it into  My Craft Spot Challenge #61 which is to use summery colors on your project and Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge which is to use yellow on your project.  I searched YouTube on how to make paper pinwheels and found this video.   I needed something sturdy for the pinwheel sticks so I took the cotton off of the ends of a Q-tip and wrapped twine around it to make it colorful!  This is one of only a couple of cards that I have made that I did not use a Cricut cut!  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)

Krafty Girls Challenge #9 - Mission Impossible

Hi there!  This week over at Krafty Girls the challenge is to create a paper craft that someone helped you create in any way.  I bought my sister a few nail polishes for her birthday.  My daughter and I decided to make her a card that matched one of the nail polishes that was glittery blue!  We also decided to make a little purse to put them in.  My daughter helped do everything but was especially helpful getting the purse folded together properly!  I hope to see you link up your project at Krafty Girls!  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)
