Spinner Card

Okay, so I am a little behind the times and this is the first spinner card that I have ever made. Well, I made one in a class when I learned how, but this is the first one I have done on my own. Kip's family is getting together tomorrow afternoon to celebrate his uncle's birthday. He has a slightly different sense of humor, so I thought he might like a card that included frogs in underpants! Both stamps are from Repeat Impressions and I stamped them with Memento ink and then colored everything with Prismacolor pencils. I am not sure of the maker of the patterned paper on the back part of the card, it was from my stash.

Speaking of my stash, I have challenged myself to use the stuff! You know how it is, you have stuff and just keep it for the perfect project and then you keep buying more stuff and never use the first stuff. I sorted my paper scraps a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly going through some of the other stuff as well. I bought Jenna and Samantha their own embellishment container and gave them some old die cuts and other things to use. Their mom always keeps them in art supplies at their house, but they love coming to my craft room because they have access to all my leftovers and I have cool tools.  Have a great rest of the weekend.

OMG Gina... frogs in underpants. That is so funny and the sentiment is perfect. I am sure he will love the card. I know what you mean about using up what you have - it is so hard to do though when you see all the neat creations.
