Finally, I'm back to the blogosphere! Ten days of sinus headaches are not fun. Today was such a gorgeous day with 70 degrees and sunshine. So what better way to end it, but with a very bright and sunny card. I know I may be under-performing now after my bouquet easel card. I would like to thank everyone who left such wonderful comments. I will strive not to disappoint and I hope that even the so-so inspires.
Tonight's card was inspired by a pinwheel I found in my wrapping paper. I thought it would be really fun and whimsical addition to a card. I found this tutorial online: http://rubberstamping.about.com/od/projects/ss/Pinwheel.htm. It's very simple and can be scaled down to smaller sizes. I was going to use a straw for the pinwheel handle, but it seemed too flimsy. I had some unused kabob skewers, shortened one and wrapped in white ribbon. The only thing I was really not happy with was how the sentiment turned out. I wanted to stick with the color combo and black just seemed to stark. Oh well. Something that will be mulled over as I sleep tonight I'm sure. Topping it off was The Play Date Cafe color challenge this week along with the 2Sketches4You sketch.
