Love makes the world go 'round!

Loves moves us in so many ways. When we spread our love, good things happen. Just look at all of the charitable organizations around the world and the good things they are able to do. It can be as big as helping a country or community in need to something as small as visiting a grandparent in a nursing home. Some of my last memories being with my mom were watching my daughter push Mom's wheelchair up and down the halls of the nursing home. My mom was only content if she was moving due to her dementia. She would hold my daughter's hand and simply smile as my daughter cared for her in her own little way. I could see the love between them.

You truly can move others by spreading your love around the world. With that in mind, I reached for a Raisin Boat stamp set that I really love to use this time of the year called, "Playing Cupid."  I love the Cupid and the heart images that are included in this set. One of my favorite images is the world encircled with hearts. It's a great stamp to help spread love to others. Here's a few cards I made this morning using just the world image and some phrases from the set. All of them will "move" you with their interactive features!


Love Makes the World Go 'Round - Spin, Baby Spin!
In this first card, the world actually spins around using the spinner card technique. Two pennies and some Sticky Thumb dimensionals sandwiched together sit in the punched out track. I added a few punched out hearts to the embossed background for extra color.

Connected by Heart - Twirl Awhirl!
Even if you are miles apart, you can connect with your loved ones by sending a card. Our world in this card twirls around on baker's twine. I used our awesome cloud embossing folder for the background. What's fun about this one is that you get to see the world inside and out! Even when the card is open, the world shines through!

Sending Lots of Love - Wobble, Wobble! 
Our next card gets its move on with a little help from an Action Wobble underneath! This card wobbles back and forth and spins hearts off of it in bright colors. The phrase is from the set, "Heart Attack" stamp set.

Okay, so now you can see how much I love this set. It's worth the world to me! (Tee hee!:)) Check it out as well as the set, "Heart Attack." Both are great staples to have on hand or great rentals when you just want to send a little love. Move others with your love today! Smiles, Bobbi
