Scrabble tiles are great for masculine cards...

This card is one I made a couple of months ago, but never shared. It was for my brother-in-law who reached a milestone birthday.

I found an image of Scrabble tiles online and printed it out after re-sizing so they'd fit on my  card. Each tile is popped up on a little square of foam tape to give it some dimension.

The 75 was cut out with some large letter dies, and I used my paper cutter to make some really thin strips of black cardstock to use for a little added decoration (and also for the hyphen between the number words).

I used my computer to print "is only 23 in Scrabble!"

My inside sentiment was something I came up with and printed out on my computer.

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to post over the next six weeks. We'll be traveling in our little RV, so an internet connection might be pretty iffy at times. We are actually heading for the southeastern quadrant of the country, so I'm thinking today about all those in the path of Hurricane Florence. It sounds like a wicked storm, and I just hope everyone stays safe and is able to evacuate if necessary. Our travel plans include visiting both North and South Carolina, if possible. We'll see what happens with Florence and adjust our plans, if need be.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very clever. I love the sentiment. Safe travels. Perhaps you can hit NC and SC on your way back at the end of the 6 weeks. Are you coming through Indiana?

LOL love this Cheryl, so clever to count 75 as 23!
Hope you have an amazing holiday, don't forget to post us some pics. And stay safe if you do head to Carolina, it looks just awful on the news xx

Love the play on words in your scrabble card, very original. I'm sure your B-I-L got a kick out of his card. Enjoy your travels and be safe.
