Hello and happy Thursday!

Can't believe it's almost the end of can this be?!? 

Today, I have a card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - TTTC159....

Here is the challenge board....

I decided to use the middle row down - SPARKLE, FREE AND FUN FOLD.

I must admit, I always shy away from fold cards, because some how I'm really challenged with following written instructions...LOL!!! I'm definitely more of a visual learner. 

I came across THIS Instragram fold card/video and thought it would be fun to try. For my card base I chose a lighter SU - Barely Banana CS and added some PTI Striped DP. For the middle I added a heavier White CS from PTI. The gorgeous bloom is from the Pinkfresh Studio - Garden Roses Set. I matched it up with the coordinating dies and layering stencils. Next I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the SU - Large Oval Punch. At last I added the Silver Halfback Pearls below the sentiment and voila my card is done! 

Now it's your turn....don't forget to stop by the TTTC Challenge Blog to see all for the teams ideas.

Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~

Hello and happy Thursday!

This crazy weather has put a damper on my crafting time lately...we had once again Tornado warnings with strong wind gusts...had to clean up our backyard and pool from the branches, debris and leaves, etc..!!! April definitely has kept me busy!

I did manage to squeeze a card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - TTTC157....

Here is the board for you to choose from....

I decided to use the top row across - BUTTERFLY, ENCOURAGEMENT AND SLIMLINE.

My card is featuring the beautiful Empty Grave Set and Die Combo, - definitely the best encouraging message you can proclaim this Easter weekend - the flowers are from the Lovely Blossoms Set and Die Combo ....along with the Crimped Slimline Die from The Greetery. The butterflies are from a retired MFT Set.  At last I added some Silver Pearls...voila!

Don't forget to swing by the Tic Tac Toe Blog to check out all the entries and cards the team has created. Wishing you a wonderful & blessed Easter weekend!!! ~SL~
