My First TicTactToe Challenge card
Good Morning Ladies,
Slightly cooler day yesterday, it felt like there was a storm brewing all afternoon, as yet it hasn't arrived. We did have our 'elevenses' out side yesterday but I had to go a put a cardi on as the breeze was chilly. We then went and did out circuit of the village, stopping to pick up some marmalade and I was hoping to get a cucumber plant but they were all gone. Luckily the lady that has them is on the village FB group so I messaged her and asked if she had more, she was really kind and came and dropped them off for me with a couple of tomatoes too, she stood and chatted for a while and asked if I would like to meet for coffee when all of this nonsense is over, which was nice.
Today's card is my first of the TicTacToe challenge cards, I chose Categories: Water theme/Masculine/simply stamping (simple as in all one colour).
I used the same SU stamp set that Lilian used for her challenge card on Sunday, it is called High Tide,
I stamped everything in 'Soft Suede' to keep it simple and I also wanted the 'Vintage' look.
There are some lovely sentiments in that set but I thought that this one was quite apt for current times. I added my stamped piece to a darker shade of brown card to finish it off, I wanted to keep it super simple so I left it at that.
I am quite pleased with the results.
I am hoping to do some more pages for my accordion book today, it took me a good while to clear up after the crafting session on Sunday morning, I did pick up a good tip though, if you have paint stuck to your masks, soak them in a little Biotex, it brings them up like new, they smell good too!
I hope you manage to have a good day, there will be plenty of Tracy Evans tutorials on today as she has a One Day Special on Hochanda, trust me she is fun to watch and craft along with.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
