Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have all had a lovely relaxed weekend. We had quite a relaxed Saturday but Sunday I wanted to get the 'cupboard under the stairs' pulled out and reorganised, some of the stuff went up the loft as it was things that I am unlikely to use anytime soon but I don't want to get rid of, I then sorted the other boxes into Jewellery making things, my ribbons took up a huge box and there were a few others that had 'Things to Alter' like MDF shapes, boxes some Blank Canvases and Shadowbox frames, another had lots of different inks and paints, pastes etc. I was just getting frustrating at not being able to find the things I needed, I still haven't come across my Paper Cutter yet. I am guessing thats in the garage in a box.
I have chosen a TicTacToe for this weeks challenge as it's been a couple of weeks since we have done one, this one seemed to have a good mix of options, great for both Christmas and everyday cards, because I am guessing that some of you are like me and haven't finished making your Christmas cards yet, we are getting very close now, most people start to send them in about 3 weeks from now so, time to get busy making them I think. I feel like I have been making them for ages though, but when I last counted I only had about 12 made, I thought it was going to be double that.
The Box that says 'Designer Paper' means ANY decorative paper that you want to use.
I have shared a couple of Christmas cards that work perfectly for this particular challenge, the first card using categories:
Designer Series Paper (DSP)/Red&Green/Ribbon
For this card I used the 'Under The Miseltoe' Designer Series paper, mixed with Old Olive and Real Red card, Real Red Ribbon and the Everyday Label Punch.
My second card uses categories:
I used the exact same paper and card as above but this time I embellished my card with flowers made with the 'Four Petal Punch' and its matching stamp set 'Pop of Petals' I finished each flower with a faceted gem coloured with my Real Red Stampin Blend pens.
I hope that you all have fun with this challenge, Karen was absolutely blown away by the amazing response to her 'Animal' themed challenge last week, so thank you so much to everyone that took part.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
