Snow Juggler

ugWell I was so late with last week's Christmas card, I was determined to get this weeks made at the first opportunity.

After a quick tidy up and a cup of tea whilst wandering through blogland this morning (sorry I didn't have time to leave comments, I was on a mission lol, searching for ideas)  I got cracking.

The ladies over at Humbug Hall are challenging us to make a card that moves.  I searched through all my old tutorials and most of the moving cards involved pulling bits out, plastic bags and all kinds of things so decided they would take too long and just went with this suspended tag card.  The tag spins around to show the 2 sentiments.

I am entering it into the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch
Winter Wonderland - P is for   (Pink, Polka Dots, Punch)
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - Scallops

Right off to have a bit of lunch and another wander around the blogs.  I noticed this morning everyone was saying how lovely the weather is, well its not here in Manchester, its blooming perishing and looks like its about to rain :(.

Hi Debs,
I'm really excited to see what everyone is going to do for this week's challenge.
There are so many inventive ways of introducing movement into cards these days and the suspended spinner is one of my favourites. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
