Tic Tac Toe

This week The Paper Players challenge is playing Anything Goes, Tic Tac Toe.  Here's the board...

I've never played one of these board challenges before.  I usually get a couple of squares figured out and then get muddled by the 3rd.  The Bingo is even more confusing for me.   Too much thinking!  And the free spot in the center of this board makes it a lot more fun!

Here's my card...

I'm going down the first row with Flowers - Blue - Spring.  Or if this isn't Springy enough, I can go across the middle row with Blue - My Choice - Ribbon.  My choice being the embossing.

It also works for CAS-ual Fridays  challenge

April Showers bring May Flowers. 
CFC50: Spring is here so show us your Clean And Simple creations 
with flowers or trees.

 I hope that this card is CAS enough for that challenge.

The design piece was in my UFO (UnFinished Objects box).  I tweeked it a bit, added a strip of leftover scallop trim and a ribbon.

I'll add a sentiment when I know who and what I'm going to send it to.  Do you keep a supply of blank cards on hand?  I do and it's a big help when I need something in a hurry.

Did you see that the Ticket Corner Punch is going to retire?  That's one of my favorites and you better believe I've got an extra one on order.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

I'm so glad you pulled that out of your UFO box...with the light sprinkle of "dots" and a white scallop border, it is so gentle and sweet.

Beautiful in blue and white, Bonnie. Bingo is my favorite challenge but I've never played one with the 'my choice' in the middle...very helpful.

Oh, I didn't know the ticket corner punch was going to retire. Hope mine keeps going for many years to come.
