Tuesday Throwdown - Things with Wings!


I'm here today with my Tuesday Throwdown card.

But first I'd like to complain about the weather - it's gone so cold.  Tonight I've put my big fleecy dressing gown over my clothes - as the rule in our house is no central heating until October!    I also had to have a a cup of tea (and a Jammie dodger to dunk in it!) to help me feel more cosy.

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is Things with Wings. We are sponsored by MyGrafico who have given us some lovely images to work with.

Here's my card:

I've made a spinner card with my little fairy, hopefully you can see from the pictures that she is suspended in the middle, and you turn her round a couple of times before closing the card, then when someone opens it - it spins round and round.

This was fairly easy to make, and I think it's really cute!   Although I've bodged the mechanics a bit, you can't see the red and white Washi tape holding it altogether inside from this picture.  I'll have to fix that in a bit as I've promised the card to one of my friend at work for her mum.

I do hope you can join us for our challenge this week - it's always nice to see what everyone creates!
