in the doghouse

Hello friends!  Today we are having an Ai DT Reunion Blog Hop and we are also featuring the NEW Ai Spinners Release!  FUN!!

You should be arriving here from Deloris Thiede‘s blog.  If not, you can go to the Ai Blog to get started!

The Ai Spinners are lots of fun to create with!  They are intended to be used on a piece of string in a 3.5″ opening, so you can wind it up, mail it, and your recipient can see it spin when they open it!  BUT…you will see that there are many ways to get creative with these images!

For my project, I used the Ai Dog Spinner (4675). At the time, I didn’t have the matching Dog Spinner Dies (4694) but I am happy to have them now!  I decided to make a doghouse shaped card.  (I love shaped cards!)

Isn’t that sentiment perfect for the dog chasing his tail?  Here’s a look at the inside (and back side of the dog)…
