a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

It's also Blogger's Challenge today and why not start the weekend off with a little game.  How about Tic-Tac-Toe?  Join us today in getting a tic-tac-toe on the board using those elements either across or diagonal on your creation.

I took the very easy tic-tac-toe today as I've been majorly procrastinating on my stamping these days.  I went diagonally from top left to bottom right using Embossing, Pattern Paper and Ribbon/Seam Binding on my card.  I know you are looking at this thinking I didn't use any type of patterned paper, but I did...it's double sided and the side I used already had a little texture to it, so I just embossed with my cuttle bug using the argyle folder.

I purposely left a sentiment off this card and hand wrote in "Happy Birthday" on the tag on the gift.  

Hope you will join us this week for blogger's challenge and get a "tic-tac-toe".

How cute, love your coloring! The added handwritten HB is a great touch - wish my handwriting looks like yours. I think we all need a "Kim Howard" true font!
