Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Sweet Friend


Hello, I hope this post finds you well. Things have been less than ideal over the past couple of weeks in my neck of the woods and stress has hit an ultimate high. So if I seem a little out of sorts that is why! I do not have the time or energy to tell you what my last ten days have looked like, nor would I do that to you, all I am going to ask is if you would please keep my father and my hubby in your prayers. On a happier note, my son and daughter in law are coming to Florida for a few days, rather unexpectedly, so that might be just what this girl needs as a pick me up and to get me back on track.

Onto today’s card! Over at The Paper Players we have a Tic Tac Toe Board created by LeAnne for you all to enjoy. I have selected the center row of circle, red and DSP, but my card would also work with the diagonal row of blue, red, and white. Which row speaks to you?

When creating my card I decided to combine it with the Festive Friday Challenge. The three items I selected were; stripes, rectangle, and bright colors.

Card Details: I have a mix of The Greetery, Gina K Designs, and SU, and a MS punch for my card. If you have any questions just ask.
