Art Impressions Challenge #183 Creative Critters Week Two with Mini Spinners!!

Hello AI Fans!!

 Welcome to week two of the Art Impressions Challenge #183 Creative Critters! We are celebrating the release of the brand new Mini Spinners!! The full size spinners which were released in January of 2015 were such a hit, that AI decided to expand on the line, and created these adorable Mini Spinners 

Today I'm featuring the adorable Mini Bear Spinner Set! It comes with three stamps (the bear, the heart, and the sentiment) and two dies (the bear and the heart)!  Guess I should have used some Washi tape to hold my die in place. It scooted on me! I see this as being an adorable "new baby" card, don't you?! 

Copics used:
E33, E35, E37, E51, E53, RV32, RV34, R29, YG03, YG05, YG07
Papers are Doodlebug Lovebugs

Please be sure to pop over to Art Impressions Blog to check out all the awesome creations with all these cute Mini Spinners!  And don't forget to link up your Creative Critters creations to the challenge for a chance to win an awesome prize!!  Oh! And what do you think about the new shop??!! Are you loving it as much as I am??  Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Testing links - please pay no attention :)

It's all fixed now thanks to Blogger Help Forum! They discovered some weird "useless" html code on a post, so I deleted the post they found it in rather than just trying to isolate it. And as soon as I did that, everything was fine. Whoot Whoot!!
I've been having issues with my last two posts with links and comments not working correctly, so I wanted to have a test run to see if I can get things to work correctly.  Please pay no mind to me as I try and work this out. :) Thanks!
