Spinner cards

I had SO much fun making these - I giggled the whole time!!! My idea first came when I sat down with my "Frogs Jumping for Joy" set by Simon Says Stamp to make some Design Team cards. I wanted a way to make the frog appear to be "jumping for joy" - and then it hit me...I remembered seeing a card that had something that "rolled" across the front - NO idea what they were called so I sifted through all the tutorials until I found it!!! The SCS instructions were confusing so I did a Google search and found a tutorial here - much easier to follow!!! Anyways - I had FUN!!!!

Here is the first one I made - not 100% happy with the front, but it was the test project!! BUT I had to show you cuz the frog actually JUMPS across the card!!! I wish I knew how to do a video but if you've ever made one of these, you know what I mean!!!

And the next one I made, just cuz!!!

Thanks for looking!! I head back to work on Monday so my crafting time will be less but I will still be around!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Your cards look great, I have to try this also!
I'm really sorry, but I don't know anymore if I already sent a big "THANK YOU" for the birthday card you've sent to me! If not, thank you very much, I was so happy to receive one of your wonderful cards!
