Here is my Tic Tac Toe Challenge card, it's so lovely to be using bright and spring like colours, I think that we all love the colours of a new season at the start of that season but as it draws to a close it's so nice to move on to the next batch of colours. This particular Patterned Paper Collection is called 'All My Love' and features soft pinks through to vibrant Lovely Lipstick.
So My Categories for the TicTacToe are: Ribbon/Patterned Paper/Embossing
I cut a white card base 4 1/8 X 5 1/2 inch then matted a piece of the gorgeous 'All My Love' dsp on top, I then cut a narrow white border and cut a scalloped edge down the length of it and embossed a stitched effect along the scalloped edge . I ran a piece of Flirty Flamingo ribbon down the card and finished the top a with a triple bow, which I popped a fussy cut flower into the centre of.
I stamped one of the sentiments from the 'Forever Lovely' stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut it with one of the Layering Oval dies, adding a scalloped mat of Flirty Flamingo card beneath.
I fussy cut a few flowers from the paper and added around my sentiment.
Quite simple but quite pretty I think.
Oh we have a busy day in our house today..... the girls and I need to finish a few decorations, then at 11am we are all having our hair cut, Freya is lovely and it's always great fun when she calls in.
Then Pauls parents are calling in with a 'Special Delivery', I will tell you the story...…..
Sophie has asked for an Overhead Projector for Christmas for her art work, so we looked into them and to be fair she had no idea how much they cost to buy new, you are looking at at least £300 +,
we were looking everywhere for one that was in stock and could be delivered in time for Christmas, I just happened to follow a link to Ebay, (not a place I would look for Christmas presents) the link took me to a Overhead Projector for sale that had 6 hours left and no bids, it said in the description that it has only been used for one project and is 'As good as new'! So I placed a bid for the £50 minimum (it was midnight) and just left it to fate. Paul woke me at 6am to see if we had won the auction, so I logged in and we were the only bid so we got it for the £50. The other thing that probably put people off was that it was in Newton Abbott, which luckily for us is really close to Paul's parents house. So they went and checked it out today and said it was great and it came with a large Screen too! So they are calling in to drop it off on their way up to Birmingham tomorrow, which is really kind and helpful. We don't ever usually get that lucky. We had asked Sophie if it was one that she would like and she was super excited as it was the same ones as they use at School.
After all that I have to organise an early tea as Paul and I are off to get a few more gifts, we only have a couple more things to get apart from Matt who just doesn't know what he wants, he did suggest a Steven Brown McCoo Painting though. So I will look into that later today.
I hope that your day is far more relaxed than mine,
Have a lovely one however you are spending it,
Love and hugs to all,
