Love Match

This is for the project parade going on now at the Verve Stamps blog. Head on over for more inspiration and your chance to play along and win. The theme is A Kid At Heart, so I made this Love Match Memory Game.

I used to love sprawling out on the living room floor in the evening to play memory. I still remember some of the little animal characters that were hiding under those neatly lined up rows of red cards. But mostly I remember how happy I was spending time with my mom, and how accomplished I felt with each pair of matching cards that turned over.

For this set, the cards are two inches by three inches with a keepsake carrying box to match. Each card has the same basic gray/basic black back side. The fronts are either three small hearts, one large heart, or a sentiment in a mix of colors. If you decide to make a set of your own, be sure you have an two of each card so they match up during the game.
"Love Match" is computer generated. All other images come from the Hundred Hearts stamp set.

Fantastic idea Bethany! You just gave me an idea for my next craft for Chloe's teacher....a multiplication matching game and the twist can be...they need to answer it right before they can get the two cards ;)
