Having Fun.

That's what these Valentine's cards were to make....fun!
They're for my daughter's grade 2 class. I first read about the scratch card technique about a year ago and have been waiting for a chance to use it. The "Around the House" challenge at Moxie Fab World was just the motivation I needed.
It's super easy to make. Two parts paint to one part dish detergent, spread it onto contact paper and let it dry. Then you can cut the strips to any size you need.

This is the front,



I put some kid approved jokes on the back, Valentine related,



A small piece of double sided tape holds the Popsicle stick in place yet allows it to easily peel off.



Also for these challenges -
