CFC134 - Tic Tac Toe

This is my second post today. For my Festive Friday/Holiday Inspirations Group post, please scroll down.


It's hard to believe, but my term as a Girl Friday is over with this challenge. I was so thrilled and honoured when Michele asked me late last year whether I would be interested (um, YES!) and the time has gone so quickly!

But in addition, Michele has decided to take a break from the CAS-ual Fridays challenge for a while (bad news for us), to focus on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps that she has been creating so that we can all get some of Michele's creativity in our hot little hands! (good news for us!)

This somewhat-final challenge is really fun. Michele has given us a tic-tac-toe board and you choose 3 in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) and make a card with those 3 elements.




I really chose the top horizontal row - chevrons, black and sequins. But I accidentally also ended up with the middle vertical row - black, white and grey!


And even more good news (for you) - there's prizes! If you leave a comment here, you will be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! Plus, the winning card linked up to the challenge will receive a $50 gift certificate. All winners will be posted on the winner post on August 25 on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog.



The deadline for this challenge will be August 22 - I can't wait to see how your tic-tac-toe card turns out!

Ardyth...I'm soooo far behind in commenting (and yes, I fully intend to catch up!) but had to pop in with a WOW for this card! Love the crisp black sentiment and chevron, and the colourful sequins. Two rows of tic-tac-toe = happy 'mistake'. I'll miss you as inspiration here, but...we know where to find you!!
