All in a Spin!

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Deedee’s Digis  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I’ve taken this little piggy from the Party Animals set by Deedee’s Digis and decided he would make a great Yo-Yo Spinner Card using a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.That’s why there’s a thread with a button dangling  from under his chin.Bet you were wondering,eh? 😉 When you pull the string his head spins!

Bit difficult to capture in stills but this may give you the gist of it :

And here’s how it ends up once it’s unravelled completely and his head is back to where it began :

These are great for kids – or husbands!Kind of equates to the same thing in most cases 😛

My goodness,there’s so much in this set!Three images in various uncoloured and coloured forms,three 6 x 6 papers and four sentiments!I’ve coloured up the pig with Copic Ciao Markers and I’ve used two of the papers with some complementary purple card from my stash.I really thought this style of card would go so well with those fabby sentiments!Ideally I would’ve loved to have added another orange button to the border at the top but I only had one so chose a matching one in purple instead.The black thread is recycled from some clothing price labels 🙂

Image,Papers & Sentiments : All from Party Animals set by Deedee’s Digis
