Tic Tac Toe at Phindy's Place

Wow, this Friday sure rolled around fast didn't it? That means it is time for another fun challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog and this week we are going to play TIC TAC TOE.

We want you to make a card using three elements from one row in the graphic below. Your row may run horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

We will choose one random winner who will receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store. One entry will be selected as Card of the Week and the creator will also receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store as well as being in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

You do not have to use a Phindy's image to play but if you do, don't forget to follow the instructions on the sidebar and enter it twice. If you don't have any Phindy's image, pop over to her store and pick up a few. You can see her newest image on the sidebar.

Our designers have had some fun playing Tic Tac Toe and created some great inspiration for you.  Now pick a row and let's see what you can create.

For my card I have used the vertical row on the left - embossing, buttons and a die cut. This card is to welcome a new baby girl and has a personal (and confidential) message inside.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

  19. Well, how happy am I to see you popping up in an Art Impressions challenge!? This is so sweet. I love the bassinet. It reminds me of when we brought our kids home. We had a Golden Retriever and a Black Lab. Both of them were so curious and gentle with the new babies. Both of them have left us in the last 3 years but I love when something like this brings back such sweet memories. Thank you.
