This week our destination is Deatsville, AL and we are throwing a Valentine’s Day party for Sara and Leavie!
I woke up Saturday morning in the midst of the NE blizzard to find Sheri’s cheater email. I read through it and knew exactly what I wanted to make for a card. Off to the craft room, made my card and came back to my computer to get the addy for the destination. I scanned over Sheri’s email again looking for the addy when I stopped and started re-reading the Challenge Translation. WAIT A MINUTE…where’s the part that said Sara like’s Scrabble? I know I read that she likes Scrabble…eek…where is it? RUT RHO!! It’s not there. But, but… I just made a card that looks like a Scrabble board!!!!!! Truth be told, I don't know why I got so focused on making a scrabble board card but, I did! To justify my stupidity, I’m blaming it on the stress of the blizzard! Yup, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!!!
Now for the deets - Very Vanilla CS scored to create my Scrabble board. Letters from SU’s Just Perfect alphabet stamped in Basic Black on VV and punched with a ¾” square to create my message. I sponged edges of tiles and board with Crumb Cake and added little flowers, hearts with pearls and a bow. Mounted board on SU’s Basic Black and then a base of Crumb Cake.
Hope you enjoy my scrabble board, crossword, puzzle thingy and thanks for looking!

LOL - I LOVE your card and immediately thought it was a crossword. Blizzards do stange things to your brain, it makes you store information from the week before (scrabble and yahtzee). Gorgeous card and going into My Favs.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

This is clever! I love the way you made the sentiment into a scrabble board. Sure to bring a smile to Sara's face.
