TCBS D/T~Inspired By a Children's Game!

Happy Tues. Evening!

Hi~ya All~

A very happy Tuesday evening to everyone, I hope all are doing well. I have been quite busy today, so I am a little late posting here.

This week over at The Cuttlebug Spot our challenge was to create using a children's game as our theme. There are so many kids games out there some old, and some new. I was thinking of some of the old games I use to play as a kid, and I came up with hop-scotch. I remember playing this game and could still play it today, lol.

For my card I chose a theme "Hopping my way to your heart." I created my hop-scotch with tiny scalloped squares which I created with my Cricut and DS using the New Arrivals cartridge. I then punched out my large heart with the SU Punch, MS punch for the glittered little hearts border. The tiny punched hearts were added to the hop scotch pattern. Two different CB folders were used to create this card, along with rub-ons for the sentiment, and on the glittered SU paper. Thanks for taking a peek, and be sure to check out what my D/T brother and sisters have created for you.

Hi, Lillie, sorry I'm getting here to see this wonderful card; I've had a nasty little flu bug the last week or so!

I love this card with the hopscotching!!! I guess great minds think alike because I also used that embossing on a card and box I did today!!!

Great job, my friend! You always come up with great ideas and incorporate such great colors!!!
