Two More Pinwheel cards



 I was inspired to make more pinwheel cards by my dear friend, Court.  Court used a glazed brad on her card, and I thought, "I have some glazed brads!"  Today is the last day of school and I thought I would make cards for the two lovely secretaries in the front office.  Both of these ladies always greet everyone with a smile and are always helpful.  I wonder if they realize how much they brighten my day every time I visit the school?

  I prefer to make my pinwheels from double-sided paper, so I cut two 3" squares of BasicGrey paper (1 pattern and 1 solid) and xyron'd them together.  This does make the pinwheel sturdier.  The two sentiments were rub-ons that were just sitting on my work table.

Supplies:
paper:  BasicGrey "Lime Rickey"
glazed brads:  BasicGrey
rub-on sentiment:  American Crafts
my sewing machine

Happy Thursday!
