My youngest nephew's First Birthday party was coming up when I saw Just Add Ink's challenge to use Woodgrain, which immediately put the idea for these blocks into my head. Unfortunately, by the time I had a chance to sit down and make the card, that challenge was over but the color challenge they replaced it with was perfect, so I just used both ;) To make the edges of the blocks, I used the Peekaboo Frames die and sliced the door off. The white behind the letters is embossed with the same Woodgrain folder as the Crumb Cake layer, and the letters were cut with the retired Decorative Strip Billboard die. I'll definitely be making these blocks for a scrapbook page or two someday :) By the way, I think I'm finally getting the hang of the whole "clean and simple" thing... not that I'm about to abandon my urge to go overboard though!
