Game night

Do you love to play games? Our family does a lot of it's communication when we sit down together and play a game. My dad and I visit around a competitive game of cribbage. We will sometimes invite other families over to our house for a "game" night....I thought these would make fun invites!
I am LOVING this new scrapblock from CHF "Crossword". I love that I can make it any color I want! Instead of my crossword being black I stamped it in aqua ink over the fun new "garden variety" paper from Cosmo Cricket. I played up the black and white theme from a crossword into the letters...they just jump off the page....I love that!
Gotta have dinner too! The sweet little oven is from the Kim Hughes Collection "Baked with Love" and I covered some dinner themed chipboard with patterned paper too.

Here are some of the "copic" details I wanted to point out.
I added the same B02 marker from my oven towel around the perimeter of my chipboard. I also didn't have an "N" so I stole one from another letter set and used my marker to make it black.
I colored my oven with a series of grays....C00, C3, C5.

Here are all the card deets:
Crossword (Scrapblocks), Baked with Love (KH) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Aqua Versacraft, Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Garden Variety (Cosmo Cricket)
White (Neenah)
Copic Markers
Black Multiliner pen (Copic)...to hand draw the "&"
Chipboard oven mitt (Maya Road)
Chipboard and tiny type letters (Cosmo Cricket)
Jewelry Twine

Olympic Note.....did you see the pairs dance last night! WOW! That young couple sure delivered! It was also really heartwarming to see the friendship shared between the American and Canadian teams!
