Happy Friday! - My heart goes out to those back East who've gone through quite a week with the recent Earthquake and those facing issues with Hurricane Irene. I pray you will all be safe and sound and come through these situations with no harm to those you hold near and dear.
As promised here is a picture of Coleen on her First day of School this year. She started 1st Grade on Tuesday.
- There is music that plays on the blog so scroll down and mute it so you can hear the video.
For this weeks, Blogger Challenge Lisa (Splendiferous Creations) gave us a fun Tic-Tac-Toe board to work with. Here is a picture of the board:
The object is to pick any row (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) and use the items listed in that row to create your card.
Today I have 2 cards to share. My first card was actually made last Saturday when my friend, Teresa from Spokane was down again for another visit. We spent the day stamping, visiting, laughing and eating. I realized that this card hadn't been posted yet and then figured out that it worked in perfectly as part of the Tic-Tac-Toe board.
The items I used on this card are: Embossing, Pattern Paper and Ribbon/Seam Binding. - Diagonal Row
Card #2 - I made this card to send to a woman who recently lost her mother. I used a sketch found in the new (Card Ideas for Paper Crafters) magazine (Pg.60 and did a "case" of the card on the page by Latisha Yoast).
I used colors from this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge. These are not colors I would normally pick out to use together but I think they worked out pretty well.
For this card I used: Embossing, Lace, Bling/Gems (Top Vertical Row) but it could also cover: Lace, Pattern Paper and Die Cuts (Middle Horizontal Row).
Now it's your turn to play this fun game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Just use the Mr. Linky feature so we can see what you came up with.
