Instantaneous Postal Delivery

I wish.

Last month's PTI reveal included dies for making slider and spinner cards, which I really, really wanted. Plus, there were a couple of Unity itty bitties that would be really cute as movement cards. The itty bitties were delivered a couple of weeks ahead of the dies because apparently thousands of other people ordered the dies, too. I'm not exactly patient when it comes to mail deliveries- they're kind of like Christmas every time I get one. I'm pretty sure the only way I would be happy about mail delivery is if they delivered instantaneously. Although, that might kill the anticipation, huh?

Anyway....

I found this tutorial on SCS on how to make a spinner without a stinkin' die. I didn't have all of the tools they suggested, so I made do:



The big sheep is mounted on buttons, so she can do somersaults if you want her to. My grandma's 90th birthday is this summer, and since she and my grandpa owned a sheep ranch for a long time, I think this will make an excellent birthday card.

PTI cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Fine Linen, Rustic Cream; twine, ink
Buttons from stash
Sizzix embossing folder
Watercolor pencils
One heck of a lot of foam dots

Happy Friday!
