I'm a kid, at heart.

Hi Everybody,
I am busy finishing off my card package to send to Lynnette for Stollery Hospital but I want to do a quick post to show you the card I am adding to the SAS4K challenge(anything goes).  You should check this out.  There are prizes to be won :-).

I always try to add masculine cards for the boys, even though they are somewhat hard for me to make.  These cards are a lot of fun, though.

The images are from Stampin Up.  The slider tag was cut with my CB and the ep is Black Opal from Judikins.

And now, the fun part.
 I remember the spin art kit my kids played with when they were young.  Well, when I was watching my granddaughter (before she started school), we would spend some time playing on the computer.  One of her favorite places was nickjr. and we found a spot where you could generate spin art.  We made sheets and sheets of spin art and printed a lot of them.  I have since made a few of these on my own and found that it is better to email them to myself and then print from the image I save from the email.  I can get two spin arts on a page and resize if I like.  If you check this site out, you have to move the bottle around quite a bit to get it to put down color.  It is a lot of fun, even if you are a tad older than a Nickjr.

Here is another site I found to generate spin art.  This one is cool too, but you are limited to the colors you can use.

So, that is it for today.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

A really neat card for the boys. I love the colors and how they come out from the center. Good luck and I hope that you win some of the challenges that you have entered.
