November TicTacToe Challenge card 3

Good morning Ladies, 

I hope that today finds you all well, the weather certainly brings a bit of sunshine in, it was a beautiful day here yesterday,  bright beautiful sunshine all day, it was warm for mid November too.  We were supposed to be going down to Devon this weekend to see Paul's parents but Paul's siblings are going down too and it seems daft everyone going at the same time, I am also trying to be extra cautious regarding Covid, so the fewer we mix with the better. We can only visit Paul's Dad 2 at a time anyway so no point us all waiting for our hour time slot, he would be exhausted.  So we have changed our visit to next weekend,  it would have been lovely to be there in the warm sunshine, you can guarantee it will be -5 and rainy next weekend!! 🤣😂

Janet it was good to read you got home safe but sorry to read the last leg of the journey was a nightmare,  that happened to Paul and I from just outside Dover one year, all traffic was diverted round these tiny roads through villages that consisted of 2 or 3 houses, no way the roads were designed to take heavy traffic that included huge lorries fully laden with containers!! It added added over 2 hours to our journey, at the end of your holiday you just want to get home don't you.  Enjoy the rest of the week,  try and relax for a couple of days xxxx

Todays card is my 3rd Challenge card for the TicTacToe Challenge .  For this card I have chosen Categories: Embossing/Die Cut/Red

I started with a Evening  Evergreen Card base, onto which I stamped some Ferns in white ink, I then used my Merriest Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder that die cuts too, I used the outline die and cut and embossed a piece of Just Jade card, I took a white ink pad and the black (back side) of a piece of Cut & Dry foam and added a little white to highlight the embossing. To add the decorative elements to the card I stamped and die cut the Poinsettias and leaves and arranged them in opposite corners of my card, the sentiment is from the same stamp set as the Poinsettia stamps, its called Merriest Moments. I popped some Cherry Cobbler gems to centre of the Poinsettias to finish the card, oh a a swish of glitter pen! 

I hope that you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Good morning everyone 😊
    Yes I make a smiley because the weather here is lovely and I hope you all have the same but it's a shame that so many of us are suffering with some kind of pain so rarely can enjoy the days.
    Back to today's card, it Is Beautiful, I love the colour and the poinsettia is so pretty. Do you have the dies to cut them out ?
    Wishing you all the best of days, hoping everything goes fine for you Brenda on Friday.
    We are in Frost, wonderful atmosphere with all the decorations up so will have a look around after my bacon bap.
    Love and many hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    Such a lovely card today, beautiful seasonal colours and the poinsettias look perfect.
    Still at Debbies, she is still working also waiting for Ciara to come home from school, hopefully we can Start our jou before it gets dark. John has gone home, he couldn't face the long drive. So wll be home alone. I'm sure he will cop fine.

  4. Sorry for all the errors. I am useless messaging on my phone xxx

  5. Hi everyone
    A lovely card again today, love the poinsettias 😊
    Works been pretty busy this week, but only tomorrow then I’m off for 5 days. Hopefully it’ll give me chance to craft. I’ve made a start on this weeks card, but not got very far with it! I’m starting to panic about Christmas, especially as I don’t seem to have made many cards, I can see me buying some again this year! 😬
    I hope you’re all having a good day. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  6. Hi, all, wet and Misty here today.

    Hope you all had a good day, Lilian.
