Thursday’s are all about playing Tic-Tac-Toe….but also TODAY….THIS THURSDAY is a super special day for me because I am going to meet a blog follower, Georgette Huff. I am over the top excited as she contacted me months ago saying that she would be in the area visiting a friend and hopefully we could meet!
Can you say….MUSIC TO MY EARS!!! I feel so blessed to do this simple thing of “paper, stamps & ink” and to have the opportunity to “cyber meet” but then to “real life” meet…..EEK – I am pinching myself! 😀
OK…..here is the challenge board for this week and I went down the right side….(well, kinda) The plants thing kinda got me so when in doubt….ask friends!
That’s what I did and I loved the response that I received from fellow PAL and TTT Challenge Designer, Shannon Jaramillo…she said “Open to interpretation”…to me, that’s like saying…HAVE FUN!!!! 😛
I used the Whisper White Notecards to make this sweet card. When I think of Georgette I think of DSP as she is the Queen of using “prints” of DSP to make her card fronts pop! Truth be told, she is much more creative that I am showing you today as all I did was a quick cut to 3 1/2″ X 5″ of the DSP from the Birthday Memories DSP Collection.
When you look at the line up of products that I used at the end of the post…you will see that I am using several framelits from a variety of Bundles. YEP, I like to do that and if you get in the habit of cutting the shapes out of your bundles and having them on a paper for reference, it makes it super easy to flip through and find the perfect shape/accent for you to add to a project!
I know that many times we all can remember the shapes etc…but if not, this works great. I will wager to say that the framelits of May Flowers gets overlooked by many….this is one framelit that I love to use as a “go to” filler….(On this card, it is the Daffodil Delight little circle flower thingies! 🙂
The “hugs” was from the Lovely Inside & Out Bundle and I just snipped the edge of the circle that was attached when it was cut out. This is a very unique framelit offering and again, Stampin’ Up! did a fantastic job with being so unique with the design. You know I adore “words” to use on cards….and this set makes me smile!
I should have used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to do the “stacking” of the “hugs” but silly Susan, I forgot…..so great glue did the trick for me today! Have you tried these Adhesive Sheets yet? They do a super job with die cut adhering and no sticky fingers!
So….seeing the card upclose you can see the “row” of “all things round (the circles)…stacked words (the hugs)…plants (my lovely “greenery”) to play this weeks challenge. Please make sure that you go to the Tic Tac Toe Site and see the BEAUTIES that the designers created this week.
I say….their creative juices were on overload as they are insane! It is just so much fun to see other peoples work and also when you play a challenge, to see the interpretation that others do.
I can remember one of the reasons that I was afraid to try a challenge was when I looked at the challenge I took it too literally and said….“I do not have that”….so in my head would think – I can’t do this one….DOES THIS RING A BELL WITH ANYONE????
There you go…and NOW IT IS YOUR TURN….how about going to the “room or space of fun” and have some well deserved “me time” and play with us this week?
Not only would I love to see your work in the gallery….but I am sure that …..NO, I KNOW – that you will feel great about yourself….because YOU DID IT! Please feel free to email me if you need help!
Have a GREAT day….I know that I am going to….grabbing a “hug” from Georgette and her friend Chris…..it doesn’t get any better than this! See you in the morning!
