More on my ACEO Deck Diamonds

What is this fascination with playing cards? Is it something new? I think if I reach way back into the memory banks, I recall playing cards with my mom. But its only a faint memory, and I'm not even sure if its true. Then there was concentration, trying to remember where the cards were hidden. Did I play that with Robert? Or by myself? Oh and the cheap trick "want to play 52 pickup?" I clearly recall tons of games of 500 rummy with Megan. It never even mattered who won. It seems throughout my life there was this fascination with holding the cards, arranging the cards, sorting the cards, observing the cards, touching the cards.

No wonder I can't stop flipping over and over through my ACEO 'deck', or at least the diamonds. Does no one else share my fascination??

You are an inspiration! Your cards are amazing and beautiful. I would love to create a deck some day!

I too have a history with playing cards. We spent many, many nights playing cards as kids and growing up we played different card games too. I spent many hours playing solitaire as well. Mom was in a pinochle club, and as we got older we often played POLISH RUMMY and it's a game that we still play.

Many wonderful times, memories and history in cards. I have many decks too...even mini ones!

Thanks for sharing and I'll be sharing this blog for sure!
