First Spinner Card

The idea for this card started festering in my head about a week ago. I've been mulling it over in my head trying to figure out how I wanted to do it. I'd been in a grumpy mood and vented to my boss. Then I felt guilty about venting so I apologized and told him I'd come back to work the next day with an attitude adjustment. Him, being the smart aleck he is, asked me, "Is there some sort of adjustment knob for that? 'Cause if so I need to find mine too." And this card is the result of that comment.

Today I found a tutorial on the spinner card over on Angie's blog. If you want to make your can click HERE and view her video tutorial. Basically there is a channel cut in the front of the card and the image (in this case the 'knob') will roll inside the channel. If you view Angie's tutorial you can see why they call it a "spinner" card.

For the 'knob' I used word art in Word and put it into a circular shape.
