Ahhh… now that was a very relaxing weekend! I haven’t had one of those in years! LOL! I won’t lie, I still prefer to be busy but it was kind of nice to get to use the big TV that I had to have a few years ago. Yesterday was pretty quiet. Sunday’s are nice because Heather and I have lunch and then run around doing errands for a bit and then just chat. I came home after that and did some more craft things and then yes, watched some TV! I hope that all of you had a relaxing weekend too! (The bonus is at the end of the post!)
It’s Monday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Nance. Remember the time that I did the whole board?! I was tempted but I behaved! So here are our choices…
I went with the center row down, Any Punch or Die, Patterned Paper and Candy or Enamel Dots. Taylor brought me home some enamel dots a while ago from Michaels and they actually match our colors pretty well so I used some of those. My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper backed with some more Whisper White and adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I took another piece of Whisper White and used my “Vintage” Spiral Punch and the Perforating Stampjn’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade to make my notebook pear. Up in the corner are some leaves from the Peaceful Petals Stamp Set stamped in Pear Pizzaz and colored in my Blender Pen. The butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and is stamped in Summer Starfruit and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. For my greeting I used the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set and heat embossed it in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Coastal Cabana. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the notebook page. The clip is form the Hardware Clips Essential and holds my notebook paper to the base. Some enamel dots are randomly placed to complete the card. I really like those enamel dots, they are neat and the colors really do match ours pretty well. So there is my card for this week’s Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Nance and the Paper Players. I hope you enjoyed it and that you have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
