OSAT Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe

Welcome to the April OSAT Blog Hop!  I have been MIA for the last couple of months and am glad to be "back in the saddle" so to say..... lol.  I have had card making withdrawals and was extremely ready to get back to creating!

We have a guest hopper this month - Lea Denton.  

Please make her feel welcome and show some love on her blog.  I am sure you will love her creations.

This month we are playing a little "Tic Tac Toe".   The game is to make projects that contain the items in a line to create the "Tic Tac Toe".  If you get in a creative funk, this is a great way to get your mojo going.  

I am not a big glitter or sequins person, so I decided for my card and project to go across on the top line for my "Tic Tac Toe" and chose - LACE/TWINE/BRADS.

I decided to make the theme of my creations surrounding gratitude.  Who doesn't like being appreciated?

I created this "Thank You" card and "Just Because" gift card holder to match.  I used the Stampin' Up Sahara Sand card stock.  For the "Lace" portion of the "Tic Tac Toe" I used paper doilies as accent pieces.  For the "Twine" I used Linen Thread and used darker brown brads.

For the designer series paper accent I used the "My Party Designer Series Paper Stack".  For the stamp sets I used "Suite Sayings", "A Dozen Thoughts" and "Timeless Textures".

I used the Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment and flourishes.

I hope you have enjoyed my creations and will check out all the other blogs in this hop.  I can't wait to see what they have created.  Each blogger's link is below.  Thanks for joining us this month and we will see you again next month :)!  Happy Stampin'!
