Ding ding ding da ding ding ding da ding......

If you have ever been to a casino, you have probably heard this sound a lot! Never seems to be the machine I am playing though...... It has been a few years since I have been to a casino but the sound, I never forget. When we used to go...I swear I could hear that sound in my sleep!!!!To be honest....I don't really get the hoopla of playing slots. We used to go just for fun....then a long weekend in Vegas cured that! Too much gambling fo rme!!! After about 10 minutes of a casino now and I am ready to move on....too boring for me! I like to see stuff when I vacation...not lay around casinos. Don't get me wrong, we saw stuff in Vegas. It was slot "over load" for me. Oh well....think of the money I will save not going to casinos in the future......I can spend that on stamps!!!!! lol!


Why all the talk about slots and casinos????

I wanted to share a card I submitted for a contest recently...which I didn't win. Oh well! So, without further adieu.....

This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square card...so extra postage would be in order. I used Tart and Tangy on the white panels to create my spinning wheels. I drew a line across the center with my Stampin' Write Journaler and a ruler. Those panels were matted onto basic black. The card base is brushed silver card stock. I created the pull handle by cutting a strip of basic black and the punching a circle with the 3/4 inch circle punch. I added a "shine" accent with my white gel pen. The sentiment "dream BIG" comes from It's All Good. I inked it up with stampin' write markers - real red and basic black. It was matted with real red and adhered with stampin' dimensionals over the handle base.

See the money tray?????

It was a three dimensional tray with coins made from punching 3/4 inch circles and small ovals of brushed silver and brushed gold card stock. I sponged the edges off those coins with basic black. They were adhered at all different dimensions with...you guessed it....stampin dimensionals!

Fun, huh?
