I'm having too much fun!

This Friday our granddaughter Alissa will be 7 years old!
Seems like she was a baby just a couple years ago...
but then it seems like her mother was little not that long ago!
A sign of old age to be sure!
I made another spinner card to celebrate her day.
Really had fun with this one. I had some striped paper in my stash that was my starting point.
I may be "spinning out of control...stay tuned!

Couple cards I made today...

After seeing this amazing tutorial today: My Favorite Things
I had to try my hand at these darling flowers. So fun to make! Can't wait to try these again.

I have wanted to try my hand at a Spinner card for quite a while.
Did it today...here is the site for the tutorial:
These can be addictive to make.
The flower spins back and forth. I turn into a little kid..going back and forth.

Christmas $$ holders for the kids.

This year the we gave the kids $$ for Chirstmas.
Below are the money gift tags I made for them.
I found the idea on the internet on several websites.
Once you make one...you want to make a million. Really fun!

Random snap shots from the last couple months...
