Pinochle is a big deal in our family.  We get together and play every Saturday night.  We take turns hosting the event and always take time out for homemade desserts; it is always a special treat when Great Aunt Mary makes her homemade ice cream!
So when I read about your mixed media challenge the first thing I thought of was our Trump Card Markers to keep track of which suit is trump.  It has become a necessary item for those of us with a touch of "old timers' disease."
I have been looking for some creative ways to jazz them up.
Thanks Craftster for inspiring me! ~Wendy

Love it!

Pinochle is very big in my family, as well. A trump reminder cube could be just the ticket.

Thanks for this inspiring idea which is both artsy and practical!
