Magic Spinner!

It's Thursday and you know what that means....time for a challenge over at Twisted Thursday Challenge over at The Outlawz!  Our optional theme this week is Christmas Magic and what's more magical than a spinner card?  hahaha

I started with an adorable image from Bugaboo.  I then cut a candy cane from white cardstock and colored in my own stripes.  I'm no artist, but I felt compelled to color a back for little Ava.  (You can see that picture to the right. )  That way when she spins it's not plain white cardstock.

I made the spinner by cutting Ava and the candy cane twice.  Then I colored each side and adhered Ava.  I place fishing line between the two candy cane pieces and adhered them together.  Finally, Ava got to go for her ride!  ; )

Material List:
CTMH Paper/Cardstock:  Pomegranate, White Daisy, Uptown Fundamentals
CTMH Stamp for sentiment:  White Pines Cardmaking (retired)
CTMH Ink:  Pomegranate

Ava is spinning off to the following challenges:
Catch the Bug:  Going in Circles  (Ava is literally spinning in circles!)
Sweet Stampers:  Christmas

Thanks for dropping by today.  It's always great to have company!  Please feel free to peruse other pages/posts or view some of my videos at my YouTube Channel.  Be sure to check out the get well wishes from the rest of the team!  Our twist is always optional, so be sure to share with us whatever is in your workspace.  We'd love to see it!
