Cocoa's Train_Happy Birthday

Several weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Makiko from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps asking me if I would be one of their September guest designers.  Of course!  I was honored that they would ask me, I absolutely love Korin's images, they just make me smile!

So this week's challenge is Take me Away! -- Use any image(s)/element(s) that take you somewhere -ex. trains, airplanes, ballons, cars, trucks, bicyles and so on..  I chose to use Cocoa's Train.   He's really going places with this spinner card!

I do hope your eyes don't get crossed with this card, LOL!  It turned out a bit busier than I intended!  This is the first spinner card I made and will totally be making some more, they are so much fun!  The paper is some I've had in my stash for a long time.  All the tutorials I saw said to use a 1/2" circle punch; I had no idea they would be so hard to find!  I finally found a 5/8" punch and then used 2 nickles instead of pennies. I designed the hearts and cloud and printed from the computer. 

                                                           Works beautifully! 

I hope you have a chance to play along with us.  You don't have to use Sweet 'n Sassy digis, but we'd love it if you did!  Be sure to use a digital image and follow the "Take me Away" theme.
Every card you enter throughout September, you will get one entry to be eligible for winning 3 digis of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store. Be sure to play along every week.

You will also want to be sure and visit the talented DT and see all their gorgeous inspiration!
