Special Day

Today a Nephew turns 18, a very special day for a special man.

I wanted to make something different,
so started with the idea of a spinner card.

I had a light bulb moment of adding two circles to make a figure eight

and for the 1 I decided to cut a strip and make a shaker section with fancy acetate and sequins

It took some time to plan and make

more than a few attempts to get the spinner going freely around the 'eight'

and some finishing touches with the moon and earth

and decorated the inside with the offcuts

and my very first video !

Happy New Year !

I used lots of snippets of card paper and sequins, so I'm
off to play in the Snippets Playground.....
where there's another fantastic prize on offer!



  1. Oh how clever this is Lesley! A really memorable 18th Birthday card for sure - love the action movie as well :)
