Pinwheels Make Me Happy :)

My card today meets 2 challenges. The CASology Cue Card for week #2 is "HAPPY" while the Shopping Our Stash Challenge 60 is to use something hoarded that is "precious." Pinwheels always remind me of my childhood days and how happy I was to watch the wind spin them around and around, so I made this CAS pinwheel, using a long-hoarded scrap of retired SU! dsp that I love. The precious item? Well check out the center of the pinwheel - it's a Tiddly Wink! It was the last remaining piece I have from that childhood game, and it seemed to work perfectly in this pinwheel :) The sentiment was masked from a Northwoods stamp.
Now that I've properly re-visited my childhood, I wish you all a "happy" weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

I remember that DP - I always loved that colour combination - I'm happy you pulled it out and played along with CASology this week!

What a fantastic story! I love that you've used such a precious item on a card. I would have put it in a jewelry box and kept it forever.

Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

It is not possible to watch a pin wheel and not feel joy! What a great idea, Carol! Thanks for thinking we were worthy of your last Tiddly Wink!

Carol, Pin Wheels are really something special. Thanks for reminding us just how much. Last Tiddly Wink! WOW I'm impressed that you still had one. This card is just lovely. Have a great night.
