Pinwheels and CR84FN challenge

I've been making pinwheels ... lots of them ... gathering buttons, ribbons, embellies and cutting out lots of gift bags too... Tonight is our last craft night at Thursday Club ... next week they have their party and then finish for the Summer break ...
So I decided this week we will make cards and gift bags with pinwheels on ... it is a great way to use up scraps ... as long as each piece is about 3" square ... They are easy peasy ... but my group have co-ordination problems so they will be ready made for them to assemble everything. I have a gift for each of them to put in their bags too ... 
I used some left over SU paper to make a few more for the colour challenge at CR84FN
This is the colour palette


and here is my set


I made 4 pinwheels and just doubled them up for this project and used a plastic straw to stick them to


Picked up this new Papermania stamp the other day too



The kraft coloured card was originally white cardstock and I used Pink Petticoat's digital Organics to get that nice shade which I cut with a PTI scalloped die
Flowers and ribbons are from my stash and I used the Cameo to cut the bags ... 

I love these colours ... so bright and cheerful and the talented ladies at CR84FN have made some wonderful samples for our inspiration ... hop over and take a look

Ok so I still have lots to do ... more birthdays and anniversaries are looming ...

Thanks so much for visiting ... have a beautiful day

If there is something that is "screaming" summer it defintely will be pinwheels. You used the colors of the challenge in a lovely way. The people of your Thursday group will be blown away once they see this. Such a lovely idea to add them to s gift bag. Love that Papermania stamp too.
Have a lovely evening at your club; hope to chat soon..XXXXX

I love your bright and beautiful pinwheels, Ros. They look so sweet on your pretty gift bag and card.

I sometimes make pinwheels from vinyl and stick them in between my plants in the containers...unfortunately, not this summer...too wet!! x
