The Great Letter Search


My boy learned his letters by the sounds they made and the actions for those sounds-like when you clap your hands like a seal and say the "ar" sound, or pretend your cracking and egg for the short "e" sound. Teachers sure come up with some neat things for learning.

The next Practicing Creativity Design Stamp Set Release is right around the corner! And this time we have The Great Letter Search. Today each of the design team member's have a letter hidden or referenced in their blog as a clue to what the release will be. My card today features Chatterbox, a set released last month, as well as my letter... I'm gearing up for another year of thanking my boy's teachers, hoping for him to get a grade A.

Stop by Dana's, Paulina's and then Courtney's to find clues and then make your guess on Courtney's post for a chance to win the release!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Kraft) PTI, (Blue) Recollections
Patterned Paper: (The Boyfriend Collection) Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: (Chatterbox) Practicing Creativity Designs, (Headline Alphabet) Stampin' Up!
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versafine, (Ruby Red) Stampin' Up!, (Antique Linen Distress) Ranger
Embellishments: (Red Grosgrain Ribbon) Offray, (Journaling Card) Jillibean Soup, Paperclip
