I Love Me Some Pinwheels~!

I am in love with this little pinwheel.  I could put it on my cards all week!  Yes, there is the problem of figuring out how to mail these, but hey, I am hand-delivering, so it's okay~! 

The pinwheel die is available at Lil' Inker Designs and comes with an adorable stamp set that has so many fun sentiments to use with the pinwheels.  I plan to ink that up later this week. The sentiment above is by TLC Creations - one of the freebies that Paulette gave away this week~!

Laura has some adorable samples at Lil' Inker Designs - and a great flag and banner set that should be in my mailbox sometime next week.  Check out everything HERE. I ordered two pinwheel dies, just because it wasn't that much more, although at the time I was thinking "Why do I need two?"  And now that I have them in my hot little hands, I can see that two are delightfully fast and you can cut twice the pinwheels in the same amount of time.  DUH.  Blonde hair, you know. :)


The second card is made for the new CAS-ual Fridays challenge that debuted today HERE. What a fun challenge, and one that is DEFINITELY a challenge for me.  You don't see too many CAS cards on my blog or in my gallery.  It's hard for me.  In fact, see that white space in the corner? I wanted to fill it with brads and buttons and all sorts of stuff.  But I didn't! I had to set it aside so I would leave the white space!! 


The challenge today was to use text in your design somehow.  I chose a designer paper by The Paper Studio and made a graduation card - one of many that I will need in the next week~!

And now I am off to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day by working on my daughter's scrapbooks~! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by~!

Holy cow, not sure I will be able to put words to how much I LOVE thse cards! I've only made a pinwheel once because of the mailing factor, but these make me want to try again! Adore the bright cheerful first one and the CAS version is just as fab :) Happy Mother's Day weekend!
