Puzzle Card

Posted on

Every time I make a card I try to make it unique to its recipient with their likes and dislikes in mind.  I also LOVE it when the card speaks to something that has special meaning to themThis card meets these standards.

First, the card and then I’ll explain its special meaning and it’s recipient.  The card is this “Twisted Easel Card” :

NOW TO THE MEANING BEHIND THE CARD:

I am the chunky but adorable baby  sitting between my two big brothers.  This is my favorite picture of us.  Throughout our childhood and her life my Mother loved playing games and putting puzzles together.  My eldest brother and I share her love of “working” puzzles.  He recently got me hooked on Dowdle puzzles after giving me a couple for Christmas and later sending me a box full of them just because.   What a GREAT Big Brother!!  I made this puzzle card for him. 

These Dowdle puzzles are created from the artwork of Eric Dowdle. They are very scenic and usually very challenging.  Below is a picture of the latest Dowdle puzzle my eldest brother and I conquered together called New York.  Just look at those buildings, do they all look the same to you because they did to us, now just imagine them divided into 1000 little pieces.  LOL.  You can visit Eric Dowdle’s website HERE , he has GREAT puzzles.
