Just Playing

I sent this card out to a friend the other day. There's no stamping on it as the greeting is some rub ons. I thought it was kind of fun. It reminded me of being a kid again where you made cards with this and that and not rubber stamps, because who knew what rubber stamps were when you were a kid.
At the same time I made the first one I made this second one, again without stamping. I don't really care for this one. The proportions are off and that fat fabric brad in the center makes the card way too bulky to mail. This one will probably just lurk in my craft room until I get tired of it and toss it away.

You can't toss it away Judy. It's so pretty. I think your friend will be delighted with the lovely card you sent her. Barbxx

You're being waaaay too hard on yourself hun, they are BOTH fab, I used to get windmills (pinwheels) each time we visited the seaside and would then "plant" them in the garden. Xx

i haven't made a pinwheel like that since i was a kid and we poked a straight pin into the eraser end of a pencil. Sometimes they moved in the wind and sometimes not but it was fun. Your elongated heart is beautiful.

Isn't it just nice to be creative and play with stuff from your stash from time to time, even if you aren't thrilled with outcome. Playing is good! Anne x

You're so funny! The pinwheel is really cute--could take it off & put it on a card the size you want & replace the brad so you can mail it. Bummer postage has gotten so expensive!
