Going For A Spin!


Hope you are all having a fabulous Mother’s Day, and being spoiled!  I had a wonderful breakfast made by my hubbie, and will Skype with the family sometime during the day. 

I’ve got a card for you today made with a digital image from Mo’s Digital Pencil, and she’s called “A Big Whoop”.  The challenge this week on the MDP challenge blog is called “Tickle My Funny Bone”.  I love this image, and while I was coloring her, I got the bright idea to make her spin.  Sort of like a kid doing cartwheels!

I cut her out and then layered her on black card stock, and then cut her out again.  I thought it would make the image pop, and give it more stability as it was spun.  I used the ‘Ole’ penny trick for the spinning mechanism.  I colored the image with copics.  I’ve also dipped into my scrap stash for the various designer papers.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.

Here is a few pics of her moving.  Too bad it wasn’t video!
