Happy, happy, happy...

Good mornin' fellow stampers!

It's Wednesday and you know what that means... time for a new challenge over at ATS! This week we want to see you incorporate pinwheels into your card design. If you've got a stamp or pattern paper with pinwheels on it go right ahead and use those, there's no rule that you have to make an actual pinwheel. BUT I was able to make a couple for my card so that is proof that they are super easy to create, LOL! Here's a quick template that you can reference if you want to give them a go too. I ended up cutting 1"x1" squares and just snipped in at each of the corners, then I popped a glue dot in the center and folded every other corner down. Add a button to the center and a strip of cardstock for the stick and voila! little Flitter Friend Raspberry had some fun new whirligigs! With her arms widespread like that I couldn't resist using Raspberry for this card. She just has that look like she is about to go whizzing around the garden as fast as she can fly just to make the pinwheels spin and spin. :)

Ok, so I know you want to play along right? Of course you do, because every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win just be sure that your project includes a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Well, I hope your morning is off to a great start with plenty of sunshine to brighten your day!
