Spinning snowflake

Here is is already mid-October!  Yikes, this year sure is flying by.  I'm popping in today with some mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  We're a month-long, anything Christmas related goes challenge.  Here is my card:
 I decided to try making a spinner card; it was my first one; and it was pretty fun and rather simple, too.  Here is a photo of the inside;
 And a photo of the spinner in "action":
Thanks for stopping by.  There's only a month and a half left before Christmas!  Yikes!  Now is the time to get started on those Christmas cards if you haven't yet.  Play along with us and you'll have a good start.

A beautiful and sparkly CAS card, great technique too.
Sadly we have a limit of 10 challenge link ups including our own at ATCAS so we are unable to accept it on this occasion however I do hope you'll play along again sometime. Sarah (ATCAS DT)

Don't remind me of how little time I have to prepare for Christmas!! EEK!

I love the spinner snowflake for this sketch! I get pretty excited when people think a bit out of the box with a sketch challenge. This card is fun, bright and cheerful, just like Christmas holidays!
