You spin me right round

Ok, so I think I have gone truly mad. You know when you look at something and think a, could it work and b, can I get away with it? Hee hee. Well that's what I thought when hubby and son brought the thingamajig (see picture below and have a go at naming it if you like) home after a trip to the early learning centre. You know it's one of those spiral spin around madly with a pen thing? So I get out a cameo coral Stampin' Up! marker and gave it a whirl! What do you think?

Anyway it's for another great challenge over at a passion for papertrey. I know , I've done another one!

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies: From PTI: Kraft & melon berry card and melon berry swiss dot ribbon. Stampin Up: Whisper white card, basic grey and cameo coral ink. Other: small pearl from stash.

What a cute little spirograph set! I absolutely loved these when I was a little girl. I think you've made a fab card with it. Well done x

Oh how you've brought back the memories of my childhood - me lay on the floor playing with spirograph with paper everywhere! LOL!
I love it! So clever and creative!

P.S Clippy says "hi!" tee hee!

I loved spirograph when I was younger - totally addictive! What a classic card Emma - I love the colour against the Kraft card, thanks so much for joining in *hugs* Stephanie xxx

Fantastic card Emma! I remember this gadget, I spent hours playing and amusing myself with these years ago :)

What a great idea to use them with your SU Marker, love it, especially with the pearl in the centre.

Thanks for sharing.
