a blog about my handmade cards and paper-crafts

Poker Face

No Gravatar

Last year, my husband hosted a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society through a Relay for Life family style (no drinking or bad language) poker party. He and his friends raised at least $1,500 for the cause, which – as a survivor – is very close to his heart! To wish him success at his fund-raiser, I made him this poker greeting card using some cardstock stickers, glitter glue, playing card paper, ink and a sponge dauber, grossgrain ribbon, a DCWV card base and a rhinestone spade from Michael’s.

Here are some fancy close-ups of the card.

Here’s the bling from the 99 cent section at Michael’s:

P-p-p-p-p-p-poker face! As I prepared this blog post, I realized it’s National Poke Dale Chumbley Day. Years ago, a friend of ours started this mock-holiday as a reminder for us all to inundate him with pokes on Facebook! He is the ultimate “poker player” – he rapidly pokes back anyone who pokes him on Facebook and has even taught classes all about the Facebook poke button. 🙂

Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope you poke someone on Facebook today in honor of this silly holiday!
