Early Blue Pizzaz.... {insert witty title here}

Last night before dinner, I was listening to the 13 yo talk on the phone about what to wear on picture day. I heard her say "Seriously? You are going to wear that and have what color background?".. it was followed by this look of disgust and then she says "OK, well I think you need color coaching...".. which was enough to make my belly laugh and then get busy on the latest Color Combo by Picture Perfect Creations.

When my daughter finished her call, and arrived in the craft cave she said "NO WAY A PINWHEEL! I LOVE THOSE THINGS- DOES IT MOVE?" ... I had to tell her that I was gluing it on the cardbase and not going to spin, but we could make one that did if she liked for her own enjoyment. Somehow it must have sounded like 'work' or chore, she shook her head and left the room shortly.

Avenged Amy (Canadian SU! Consultant) has a video here, but they are everywhere on the net.
I did make a few more, in different sizes. I wanted to tear this a part and redo it alittle bit, but I like the simple side of this - so maybe I will keep it like this... who knows.
Before my daughter left this AM for school, I asked about her friends outfit for today and she said "She cannot wear a orange shirt and have a purple background, Mom, she will look like Halloween everytime someone opens the year book".... Enough said I guess...

Super fun card! It's nice to see a summery card to take our minds off of this approaching winter! Thanks for joining us at PPC!

What a great idea on a card! I use to love pinwheels too *giggle*. Things our kids say can be so funny and a color coach is very cute. I really like how you used the colors. Thanks for playing at PPC this week.
