Another TicTacToe Challenge card.


Good Morning Ladies, 

Well to be totally honest with you I was convinced that today was Wednesday!!! 🤪 I have no idea why, I usually lose a day not gain one! 

I'm not sure were yesterday disappeared too,  I spent the whole afternoon in my craft room, you know when you get an idea in your head and it doesn't matter what you try the reality doesn't match up to what you imagined, I ended up with a large pile of inky card bases ready for different projects.  It was fun getting inky tbough!

Today's card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest,  for this card I used the Categories:  Pink/Flowers/Twine/Tag

I used Tim Holtz’s Wildflowers 2 die set as the main focus of the card.  I coloured the flower with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide spray, the stem and foliage were coloured with 'Mowed' Lawn' Distress Oxide  I also used that green through a stencil to create some interest in the background, I pressed some ink onto my mat and spritzed with water and used a fan brush to flick so splatters over the background. I added all the flowers and popped a die cut Tag adorned with a Picked Raspberry heart. I added some twine through the tag. To finish the card I stamped a sentiment in the bottom corner. 

I hope that you all have a warmer day (it was so cold here yesterday, we 'almost ' put the heating on! 

Sonia I hope your first day back at work is a good one xxx

Sending Love and hugs to you all,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx

  2. Hello, winter seems to have arrived all of a sudden, so cold, out comes the woolies.

    Sandra another great card, hoping to do mine today, with my new Lavinia stamps.

  3. Hi everyone
    Sweet card Sandra. You always makes so lovely cards.
    Hoping you all have a good day whatever you do today.
    I have all this time to make a cc but no energy and staying under the duvet for another day. It's gone so cold too so we talked about putting some heating on but so far another blanket is working ok.
    Many hugs to you all xx

  4. Hi everyone
    A beautiful card, love the flower 😊
    Work went well, we had the residents flu and covid booster clinic today, so were quite busy with that.
    It’s turned very windy out today, only a little rain but I think that’s heading our way overnight.
    I hope you’re all having a good day. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    Love today’s card and the colours you have used they look so bright and fresh.

    We have the heating on. Late afternoon OH must have felt cold and said he would check it was OK, well it stayed on. He has lost a lot of weight so I think he feels the cold more.

    Hope you have all had a good day and a relaxing evening.
    Take care and stay safe and warm. Love Brenda xxx

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. Another lovely card, I think the flower is beautiful and a great background too xx
    It has turned quite chilly hasn’t it. And the rain is being driven onto the windows with the strong gusts of wind. Not nice at all.
    I hope you are all safe and snug. Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xx
