Playing Tic Tac Toe

Snorkel Boy Tic Tac Toe Challenge card – Hambo Hoedown 76

This week’s Hambo Hoedown challenge (number 76 — wow, we’ve been at this for a while!) was to play a little game of Tic Tac Toe.  You kind of have to see it to understand it — the awesome design team at Hambo Stamps provided us with a little chart, and we had to choose three elements to use in this week’s card.  I chose the color pink, an octogon shape, and brads for my three elements.

I haven’t played in the challenge for a couple of weeks — a lot going on in August! — so I didn’t get the free octopus digi, so I dug out TWO of my favorites from times past!  Above is the card I made with “Snorkel Boy.”  Honestly, I have such a huge pile of scraps that I have no clue where the papers came from.  The blue brads are supposed to look like bubbles, and I painted the Snorkel Boy and fish with watercolors I got for half price at Michael’s 8-).

Below is the second card I made featuring “Cool Cat”,  an adorable digital image you can get for FREE from the Hambo Stamps website.  The sentiment on this card came from the “Snorkel Boy,” above.  I had originally intended to switch the sentiments, but you know how it is when you get going with the glue and stuff.

Cool Cat Card!

I am donating these two cards to Operation Inasmuch, which is a one-day local missions event that many of our community churches are involved in.  They will be given to shut-ins and nursing home residents.

Thanks again to Hambo Stamps for their adorable rubber and digital stamps, and to their design team for their inspiration!
