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
