I May Have Forgotten How To Type.

I knew the summer was going to be busy but, come OOOOONNNN, 5 weeks without a post is insanity :) It feels good to be here and back into the mix.
I finally sat down at my desk for some crafty fun but had only a teeny tiny window of time so I quickly improvised a card using some old Scrabble* tiles that were there.

*the game pieces were from a previous project where I made them into drink coasters but one of my kids accidentally broke it. I had intended to re glue it.... so it should now make sense why I have random tiles on my desk :)

I looked through all my papers for something with a large grid pattern and didn't have any so I tried recreating a Scrabble board with some scoring and stamps.

My DH proposed to me on a Scrabble board--so I have a weakness for anything Scrabble! Love that you scored the grid pattern--the subtle effect is great!
Thanks for playing with us at LRW!!
