Love Is Sweet...


... and so is sledding!

WHAT does that mean, you ask??? Check out my cards for today....


 
 


Love AND sledding... both are sweet!


Okay, now for the details.




 
July 23 - August 5
 
Theme: Use a Letter on Your Creation
(other than in your sentiment stamp)
 
Twist: Also Use  Number on Your Creation
 
 
Scrapbooking with M.E. is the Twisted Tuesday sponsor this month.
 
 
 

THANK YOU Scrapbooking with M.E. for providing an AMAZING prize for one lucky participant in this month's challenge!

I immediately thought of real Scrabble tiles - since they have both a letter and a number on them.



And I had the perfect designer paper to go with the Scrabble tiles... so I was ready to create.

How do you get so much done!?
Love the scrabble background, and sledding is a very novel idea is this heat wave. It's nice to think snow this week. Could you remind me I said that come February!

Two fab cards- I LOVE the scrabble card- you ALWAYS have the coolest DP! Love the sentiment on the scrabble tiles too. Oh the sledding card is also fab- your colors are so pretty- not ready for snow quite yet....!

Both cards are lovely....and gee, you would have perfect scrabble paper wouldn't you! LOL!! Love the scrabble card.....I may have to start looking at yard sales for old scrabble games to get the letters. :)

Awww...the Scrabble card is adorable!! Totally fun Scrabble DP and tiles to go with a fun and cute image!

The Christmas card is too sweet for words. The rich, dark CS really make the buttons and image stand out! You've colored the image so expertly too. Very nice indeed!

Great colouring! I have never thought of using Scrabble tiles on a card, but I should totally do that on a card for my big sis since she LOVES Scrabbles.
