Forget the List--Have a Cookie!-- PP319 and FMS260

October 30, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

This week our lovely LeAnne is the hostess.  It is Tic-Tac-Toe week!  I think this is my favorite challenge.  I am always amazed at all the fabulous, creative ideas that are entered during this challenge!  Have FUN! 

I used the first column--Red, Santa, Diecut for my card.

I am also using the fantastic sketch by Kim at Freshly Made Sketches.  Stop by their blog and check out all the inspiration they offer each week.  

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a piece of chevron paper from the SugarPea Designs Happy Holidays Paper Pack.  I added a white banner cut with a stitched die.  The jolly Santa and sentiment are from the SugarPea Designs Here Comes Santa Claus.  The matching dies were used to cut out Santa after he was colored with Copic Markers.  Wink of Stella and enamel dots were added for fun!  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
