PLAY TO WIN

NOW TRADED
Made this for the TMTA games challenge. The background is linen finish card plus distress inks, over which I stamped the texture. The numbers are by Alpha Stamps and the dominos are Tim Holtz distressables. It all began with this man from a Crafty Individuals sheet and his left hand is in a funny position, almost as if he was hiding his dominos from other players! Our local pub held regular domino drives and you wouldn't believe how seriously it was all taken, or the grudge matches that were played!

I'm getting ready for a trip to Canada leaving on Monday - our second house swap. The only downside is that you end up trying to get the house virtually PERFECT and start poking in all the corners you normally ignore! This doesn't leave much time for creativity, but then I do have to have a lot of rests in between bursts of housework .....

A brilliant ATC Rosie! Just love all the detail.
I've never done a 'male piece' before - maybe this will inspire me....

Oh, you're house swapping! I would feel the same way about the house. I sure hope you have a marvelous time in Canada. Ottawa is such a lovely city and the area around it full of places to explore. Great masculine piece!!
