Fun and Games

Time to play a little "I Spy"!!!   I can remember when I was little and my parents played this with me and then when I got older I played it with my children.  Now, I get to play it with the granddaughters.  An OLD game, but still fun to play.  I won't go into the whole explanation of how to play, but basically you spy something a certain color (or even a thing) and then the other person has to guess what what you "spied".  




The cue word over at CASology is "game" so thought I'd play along in their challenge.   I used a little monster image from SU and stamped him on DP and popped him up a bit.  I was looking for a larger eye but all I had were the smaller ones, so that's just going to have to do it.  "I Spy" was done with some alphabet stamps from CTMH. On the inside  I put "love" - for Valentine's Day.

Thanks for stopping by...........

Adorable! Love the red and white and that font is so cool. Great Valentine's card and a fun game that I think we all played and passed down to our kids.

Oh Lynn, I used to play so much I spy with my older one and much as I read the younger one, I spy books, I haven't played the game. Thanks for the reminder.
Your card is cute as can be and I like the sentiment font.
I am still going mad with that love stamp - making cards in blue now. Not posting them on the blog because the others would be bored of the same layout. But I LOVE my cards with that stamp.
Much love,
M
