Head over heels!

I had such fun playing with my stash from SU which arrived today. I have wanted to make a spinner card for ages and today I had the wherewithall to do it.
The image is another of the fabulous bears from Pollycraft, this time turning head over heels , so I thought him perfect for this type of card.
I made the slit in the red spotty card with my SU word window punch, and mounted the Copic coloured and cut out bear onto a penny, put another penny on the back side of the slit and joined it to the first penny by a dimensional circle. When the card is tilted the bear spins head over heels along the slit. I love it!
The paper is from Forever Friends and the tiny hearts are punchies.
I made the sentiment in Word Art on the computer and mounted it on Nesties.
I wish I knew how to take a video on my camera, I'll have to find the instructions!
This card is for :-
Hearts Challenges from Little Red Wagon
Lily-Boo - Valentine
Something New - Doodle Palace (New image, Punch, Spinner card)
I am also entering this for the 'Moving' challenge from Sir Stampalot in celebration of their move into larger premises in Peterborough, and where the first prize is a Big Shot. Go to Brenda's Blog for details and join in the Blog Hop!
I can't stop playing with this card, it's really fun!

    Have you thought about entering this in the one off challege by Sir Stampalot for a "moving" card. The first prize is a Big Shot. If you want to enter it, there is a link on the top post of my blog.
