Game Night!!

Happy, Happy First Monday of January! Ahh, the kids are back in school & hubby is back at work---it was nice having everyone home but its nice having quiet in the house too, LOL! We managed to get all of my Christmas decorations (all 8 trees) down yesterday in one day---hubby helped me big time (love that man). I took the opportunity to deep clean along the way and everything is back to normal (I guess, hee hee)! Hubby is taking down the outside lights for me tomorrow and then it will be all done--isn't he a great hubby?

I have to tell you I LOVE my project that I have to share with you today---the stamps, the colors, just everything, LOL! These awesome gameboard stamps are brand spankin' new from Karen Lockhart and you can purchase them today at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. The entire collection will be available for sale at 7 am (PST) today and you will LOVE them all!

I really wanted to showcase these gameboards in a special way--so I created these fun "Game Night" invites altering the usual "criss-cross" card into a longer, leaner pocket card. (dimensions for these are 5.75x9"--scored at 3" & 6" and then cut the sides diagonally). These are super-easy to make and mass produce for any event!

This fabulously fun dp is Basic Grey's "Offbeat"--which I think is cool & retro looking! I paired it with SU's baja breeze and pumpkin pie cs. I colored the game pieces with Copics to match too! For the inside info I printed the info directly onto my cream cs and then stamped another NEW Lockhart stamp on the bottom in baja breeze ink--isn't that popcorn stamp cute (I gots lots of ideas for that stamp, bwwahhhhh)?

I also coated the gameboards with Angel Wings Shimmerz so they have a fun shimmer to them too---they're also popped up on dimensionals.
So what's your favorite gameboard of the three? Mine has to be Parcheesi--I love to play that game! Growing up my mom and I always played boardgames or cards in the evening and this was our most favorite game to play. I'm gonna have to look on Ebay for some vintage gameboards that I can hang down in our game room now!

So don't forget to check out the New Collection by Karen Lockhart--here! And visit my other DT sistah Lynn's blog for her project here. We also have new Web Candy up on our "Fans of Karen Lockhart" site on PaperCraft Planet thru Jan.10th to celebrate!!
