Just for fun!

As much as I love making cards for entry into challenges here and there, yesterday I made two cards JUST FOR FUN!  Not that all cards made aren't fun you understand...

A week ago or so, our friend Darnell of djkardkreations announced the lucky winners of her NBUS #3 challenge. Sadly, I wasn't a winner - oh, but you're wrong.  Please read her blog-post here - the whole thing, start to finish and you'll see where the inspiration for my cards comes from.

Thanks, D for reminding me of one of my favorite childhood puzzle games!

Rebus one: "Tanks..."

"...of me... you are in my thoughts today, and in my heart always!"
 
Rebus two: I [heart] you!
 
 
I hope you enjoy solving the messages here.  As much fun as they were to make with my very ancient Stamping Up set!  I believe there are [four] more in the making for my grandkids' Valentines!  Think they'll like them?
 
Have a great weekend... thanks for stopping by this week - always so appreciated!

Good job, Michele! These are terrific rebus cards! I loved solving them and I love how you designed around them!!

I also think the grands will love them and that I need to be thinking of a couple rebus cards for my own grand boys to solve!! Thank you so much for the shoutout and for playing in my silly happy world, lol!! Hugs, Darnell

What creative-ness and clever-ness is this!!!! Love this set from way long time ago!! I had it foam mounted!! You did such a fab job on these two cards so it should be lickety-split easy for you to whip up some more for your other grandkids!!! What a treat grandkids are!! Have such a wonderful day!!!

This bring me back to my Concentration days. Remember that game show with Hugh Downs? Or are you too young? ;-) I love the idea and are amazed you have the stamps to do this. Your grandkids will love them.

I love fun--these are so cute and they will love them. You are such a fun gramma! I almost got the second one--lol

Oh Michele, your grandchildren will love these puzzles.
I didn't get the second one in it's entirety...I don't think I experienced these growing up in the great white north?

They'll love them, Michele ... what a cool grandma! They're such fun and so clever ... loved doing these as a child! Thanks for the brain stretch, my friend! Anita :)

Running shoes are laced and I'm going for a stroll through the cards I've been drooling over the past few days. Your 'mental gymnastics' rebus cards are awesome! Loved those puzzles back-in-the-day; love what you've done with them here! Your grandkids will be thrilled (and I still do NOT believe you're a grandma. Uh uh...you're far too young!)
