WHY did it take me so long.... You are my Happy card with Chalk it Up

Have you ever had something in your crafting stash that you've meant to use but somehow just never got around to it?  This week I decided to use our Circle Spin Cards for one of my Chalk it Up samples.  All I can say is WHY did I wait so long to use these?!?!?!  

The spinning element is such a fun surprise for the receiver but on top of that, these cards are SUPER DUPER thick and luxurious.  This card feels like something you paid big bucks for because the base is so stable and heavy to keep the spinner going without ripping and it has a generous 5x7" size all for a whopping $.89 each!  Cheaper than the cheapest Hallmark!

I made this one with my daughter in mind.  She's off to college soon so I'm bulking up on my "just because" cards to send her happy mail each week.  Its going to be hard being apart from my girl - she's an awesome daughter and we pal around a lot - but I'm incredibly proud of her being one of only 200 incoming Freshmen in the WSU Honors College.  She's sweet, smart and beautiful all rolled into one and I'm going to miss her terribly!

The stamp is our new M sized My Happy stamp - just $2.95!  I used Chalk it Up paper, some Teal and Silver Shimmer Trim, a little bit of the versatile Slate Striped ribbon and on the inside, some of our Lagoon Heart Washi tape. I know she's going to love this one when she pulls it out of the envelope and it spins around telling her how happy she makes me!

I hope you'll give our Circle Spin cards a try - I think you'll be as impressed as I am with the fabulous quality and the fun interactive element is sure to delight!
