Good Morning and it is time to play Tic-Tac-Toe! Last weeks challenge was so much fun and we are back for another one! The team that I am on is “off” this week but please make sure that you pop over to the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge to see what Team X is up to.
I am just lovin’ playing this as it is super fun to look at the board and them have fun! I hope that you will join us and just a “heads up” – the challenge goes to noon on Tuesdays…click here to see the rules!
Today I was able to play (2) ways! 😀
- Diagonally – Yellow, Twine and Bow
- Across the bottom – Yellow, Stitching and Rectangle
Today I have a super sweet card for you that is one that could easily be made in the masses. The star of the show is the Pretty Kitty Stamp and this is a sweetie… If you follow my blog (and I hope you do)….you know that I am a dog/horse/pig kinda gal! I admit….even though we live on a farm we have never had cats….but I have lots of friends and also a peep that has a kitty!
I caved in and purchased this set and I am glad that I did. Do you remember that in previous posts I commented about looking at stamps and weighing all of the options before you hit that button….well for this one here are my thoughts!
I encourage you to do this when you are weighing options….trust me – there are certain stamps that you know right off the bat (like the Piggy and Craft one) 🙂 but these were the answers for me about the Pretty Kitty Stamp.
- The images are adorable
- The sentiments are fun yet classic
- The font is super simple….just like me!
- The images would be easy and fun to mask
- I get to watercolor or use markers & watercolor pencils
- The stamp set lends itself to clean and simple cards…again, just like I enjoy making.
After stamping the image with our Archival Black Ink…all I did was pull out the Aqua Painter and some ink pads, gave them a squeeze and went to town….the coloring literally took me less than 2 minutes! You can see the colors that I used in the line up at the end of the post.
Trying to follow the game. I knew that I was going to a rectangle….that was easy enough – pull out the best trimmer in the world and cut. The yellow mat was cut a wee bit larger so I could take my white pen and “stitch away” ….and we all know that I adore my dashes and dots!
Envelope love….my swatch books to the rescue so I can see and feel the paper that I want to use to accent my project and POOF – a great print in the Birthday Memories DSP collection!
Remember, tomorrow is the LAST DAY for you to take advantage of my Product Share and when I talk about the swatch books…..that is Share #1 – I get it…I get it – that they are pricey but please trust me on this one – they are very labor intense to make but they are something that you will use over and over. As the saying goes…you pay for what you get and these tools are daily life savers for me!
There you go and I ask you….how are YOU going to play this week? I do hope that you will take this board and have some “me time” and go for it. There are so many fun ways to work the board and I know that each and everyone of us have the supplies….how about challenging yourself to play!
I hope to see your name and masterpiece in the gallery – challenges are FUN…..challenges are a great way to find that inner mojo that we all have!
Enjoy the day and I am glad that you “peeked in” today to see what I am up to! Today is the day that Mr. Perfect (aka Milo the super dog) goes to see Dr. Hurry for his leg….he might just have 3 legs that work great but that never stops him from being the happy boy he is!
Hmmmmm….maybe that is a life lesson for all of us – things might not be the way we wished them to be….let’s try to make the most with what we have! Now go grab this day and make someone smile!
