Hello Sunshine!

I got totally inspired by Cyndy at Arcy Scraps yesterday, when she made a magical spinner transforming card! It was too cute! I had wanted to make a card with a sun for a challenge, and it turns out that challenge was already over :( But I still wanted to work with a sun.  So at 2 a.m. I thought about this card and got up to make it! I'm going to miss being able to do that when I'm back to work!!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Challenge #56-Peachy Keen Stamps Tuesday Sketch
Summer Fun Challenge at Die Cuttin Divas
Fun in the Sun Challenge #44 at More Than Favors-Wacky Wednesday
Challenge #100-Anything in the sky at Paper Cutz

So here is my creation. (I cannot believe this cut was hiding in Wild Card this whole time!!)

In order to change the faces you just spin the tab on the side on the right and voila! 

I didn't tell my husband about the little transformation trick and I changed the face every time he walked by! He thought he was imagining things :)

This princess assortment from Peachy Keen was too cute not to use!

Here is a side view.  I added two layers of pop dots to really make the sun pop.

This is a greeting from the This and That stamp set from Emma's My Creative Time.  I love this font!!

  1. Oh Maribel, What a really cute card, Love your sun, so darn cute. Wonderful card.
    Happy Monday


  2. Maribel, that's so good, but so confusing. Haha, when I was on the phone with you, it took me a while to see what you meant by the changing faces. I had no clue it was a SPINNER card. I can't believe it was hiding in Wild Card!!! That's also crazy that you woke up at 2 A.M. I guess when inspiration hits, it hits.

  3. THIS CARD IS BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the colors, the faces, everything!!!! those pop dots really do make the sun POP! :) and by the way my card was waaaaaayyyyyy far from magical lol it was a disaster lol

  4. Such an adorable card you've created. FABULOUS! Great job Maribel. ~Shen
