Turn That Frown Upside Down

Have you ever seen something someone has made and been so in awe of it, that you just had to try something like it? Well this is what happened to me last night. My fellow Creative Time design team member Miss Nikki AKA: Scrappin' Navy Wife made the cutest astronaut spinner card. If you haven't seen it, you have got to check it out! It is OUT of this WORLD ADORABLE! Click HERE to link to Nikki's awesome card and blog.

So like I said I couldn't get the idea out of my head. My daughter saw it too and wanted a girly version made for her. I put on my thinking cap and pulled out my Gypsy and this is what I came up with. I only put two different faces on mine, but it is still super fun to play with. Part of the inspiration came from Emma's (My Creative Time's) adorable stamp set 'Turn That Frown Upside Down'. I knew that sentiment would be perfect because I would litterally be turning the frowny face into a smiley face- LOL. So here is the frown:


And here is the SMILE - aren't those Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kid face stamps THE CUTEST?!!!


Here is a super short video showing how the card works. Thanks for looking.



Once again - total props to awesome Nikki - Scrappin' Navy Wife!!! And thanks for dropping by!
