Remember the old television programme - give us a B Bob? Well I picked up this pack of game cards in a charity shop

Someone had just returned it as there were some cards missing and the manager said to put it in the bin. I'll have it I said and paid the princely sum of 10p. I wanted it more for the idea than the cards and when I saw this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday, I just knew what I was going to do

I've used one of the playing cards for the background. The hexagons were cut with a Die-namics die. Now I must admit I was caught out by this die as it cuts 3 each of two different sized hexagons. I didn't realise this until I had stuck some down and they just wouldn't fit so I had to start again. It worked out well though as it meant that I could do the two tone green for some of the hexagons. The letter were cut from scraps of black card with a Quickcutz alphabet dies in the Squeeze. And this is the final card

Now to find something to do with the other 30 odd playing cards!

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft Shop - Dies, Dies Dies
Joanna Sheen - Fathers Day/Male Card
The Crafter's Cafe - Father's/For A Male
Cards For Men - Boys Will Be Boys
Heck Of A Challenge -Bingo - middle line - Yellow, Die Cut or Punch, Green
