I had to make this card for my mom when I saw the Jacks!!…my mom can still play Jacks like no body’s business…it is amazing to watch her… if we ever come across Jacks she just has to play… and she will tell stories about playing Jacks… so this card is for her!… I hope that she loves it!… Hugs Jeannie

I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!

Oh Jeannie!
I adore this card! This reminds me of when I was a little girl. I swear I had the same pig tails!
What a great job on the jacks. I do know that it does take skill to master jacks....what a great past time!
Glad to hear that your mom has such a love for a childhood game. Sounds like you will need to play a round with her =)
Love the colors as well. What great paper choices you have made.
I am goign to have to learn how to integrate tags into my seem to have mastered them quite nicely into your cards.
Love your card!
