hey tableter

Hi all, I forgot that it is Neils cousins birthday today and we are going over for dinner so I whipped up this quick CAS card.  You are probably wondering about the first part of the title 'hey tableter' - it is tablet and er added to it.  There is a story behind it, but here is the card first ...

... so the story is a bit like this - between 2 of Neils cousins and us we play scrabble (the word game) and we are very competitive :).  When we first started playing on the internet we played via 'pixie pit' and stupidly allowed all dictionaries to be used (so basically any combination of letters was somehow a word!) well we are near the end of the game and it is very close and it is coming to who can get rid of their tiles first that will win ... well we open the game to find that Neils cousin has won with a 7 letter word (he used a letter already on the board) and that word was 'tableter' now we burst out with 'what the f*#k is tableter that is just grammatically incorrect and once checking in our official Scrabble dictionary and any dictionary we could get hold off in the house there was NO listing of the word 'tableter' BUT because the pixie pit dictionaries were all open 1 of the dictionaries allowed it ... we were gutted and annoyed and whenever we get together we rib him as to what just is a tableter (apparently it is 'one who dispenses tablets :)
LOL I just can't let it go ... and I never will!
Anyway I made this for the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays - squared shaped card.
materials - AC robins egg, white cardstock; Paper Smooches 'green acres' and 'alpahdot' stamps; Staz On jet black ink; Crayola pencils; Kaisercraft rhinestones.
Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend.

Love, love, love the story. My 93 year old grandmother is an incredible Scrabble player and comes up with all kinds of words we've never heard of! Adorable card. Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Friidays!
