Poker Face

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!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
