Spinning Spark a Smile

Spark a Smile kicked off December’s whirlwind holiday season with spinning cards for the Garnet Assisted Living Home! Miss Jane brought us this great technique for a spinning, interactive card. Here are three of the 127 hand-crafted cards we made (click here to see the rest!)

If you tilt the card from side to side, the fun little circle spins across the top of the card!
This one was made by one of our new faces, Barbara. Barbara and her mom, Nola, were wandering at Michael’s when Miss Jane approached them and invited them to join us. “I picked ’em up,” Miss Jane said, as if they were at a club, rather than a craft store! We’re so glad she picked them up, because they’re both delightful company at our table!
My (actual) Aunt Betty made this fun wintery wonderland card. She and Miss Jane, along with Miss Marlene, pre-cut ALL the pieces for this project! Thanks for all your hard work, ladies! It’s such a gift to have you at Spark a Smile! 
Our next party is Wednesday, January 11th, from 5-7 PM. We meet every second Wednesday at Yang and Horsley Dentistry, 325 E. Cottonwood Lane. Hope to see you there!
