Celebrating Spring

Welcome! Thanks for joining me for this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This challenge is the best way to utilize all your goodies in your craft stash -AND- helps you turn it into an amazing handmade card! So take a look at this week's inspiration board created by TTTC Design Team Member Nicole Watt:

I've been thinking about springtime, bunnies, and the like, and decided to take that top row (twine, bold sentiment, and red) and turn it into something sweet and charming. Twine, Bold Sentiment, and Red hardly seem like an Easter card, right?

Well, here's where the fun begins...

I took some liberty with "red" and used a brick (or maybe dark carrot?) red for the bold sentiment and twine color, as those just worked so well on this uber sweet patterned paper by Authentique from their Jubilee line. I popped up strips of that paper with foam tape onto the card's base and then added some pink pearls around the lamb focal point. The "happy" sentiment die cut is from Taylored Expressions.

Hope you're thinking about taking some inspiration from this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge board because we'd love to see what you come up with! Be sure to link your creation to this week's post!!

Being Green

Welcome and ribbit (frog for "howdy"!) It's time for another awesome Tic Tac Toe Challenge and this new inspiration board is chock-a-block with fun ideas!

Kermit's song, "It's Not Easy Being Green", immediately came to mind, so I grabbed Lawn Fawn's new set called Toadally Awesome and set to coloring.

If you've visited my blog recently, you'll notice this card's layout is similar to the set of Valentine's cards I made in Mindy Baxter's class. I was just smitten with those little square cards, so I altered this to a 4.25" square and used papers from Authentique's collection called Shamrock.

Now, for even more card making inspiration using this week's board designed by Claire Broadwater, head on over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge blog! I guarantee you'll scurry to your own craft space and break into your supplies. Don't forget to snap a photo and link it to this week's challenge post.

Thanks for stopping by...ribbit (frog for "farewell"!)
