April PTI Blog Hop...Let's Play!






DH and I enjoy playing cards with friends our favorite game is Spades. One night a few years ago DH was still a heavy smoker and stepped out for a smoke break. We stacked the deck to give him the optimal run the deck hand. He comes back in looks at his cards pats them into a stack and says "LET's Play". LOL, we let him take his run then told him when he was done that he had some help with it, still laugh thinking about it. Anyhow this take along tote is perfect for game nights it holds a pen, notepad, deck of cards and a nutty treat. If you score 3/4" twice on each since you get a perfect pocket for the small PTI Glassine Bags full of nuts. Perfect way to tote along a nice set of cards the kids have not found and used ;)

as a fellow card player I love this idea and I adore the funny story - have done that more than once to a fellow card player - boy are they sad to find out the perfect hand wasn't real.
