Moving continues. The first half of today was spent unpacking and organizing. I had a nice lunchtime surprise visit from my friend Kim and the munchkins. Kim bought my favorite veggie tuna wrap from the local deli and I smothered it in hot sauce. A delicious lunch and a welcome break. After lunch, I headed back to the old place to get more stuff, brought it back to the new house and repeated the morning’s tasks. Andrew came by in the evening to help bring more stuff back over and I got a phone call from my friend Brian who I haven’t seen in 3 and a half years, so we met at Starbucks for a little bit. Another welcome break! LOL! I finished off the evening with more unpacking and organizing, with help it always goes faster! Not a very exciting day, but at least I was productive!
Luckily though, I found some time in the day to make a card! That card is for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from my friend Sandy…
I don’t know if you remember or not, but I’m a big fan of the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, and there was a time that I did every box on the square. This time I opted for 7 of the 9. LOL! The base of my card is a simple piece of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Soft Sky that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The main panel is another piece of Whisper White and I stamped the leaves from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow and the greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement. I used the “Vintage” Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to notch out the two half circles on either side of the panel and tied a piece of Linen Thread in the notched out parts. The flower is from the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set, I stamped it once in Strawberry Slush and again in Daffodil Delight so I could cut out the center. I curled the petals and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere both pieces to each other and the card. To get in my seventh box, I strategically placed some Basic Jewels Rhinestones around the card. I’m a huge fan of the way the Woodgrain Embossing Folder looks with any kind of floral image. I think it gives it a rustic, natural look. So there you have my card for the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Sandy. And let’s not forget, this is a special card because it is the first one to come out of my new creative space! I hope you enjoyed the card, that you had a good weekend and a fun week ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂
