Tic Tac Toe from Inspirations

Since Close To My Heart is changing the schedule for their Idea Books and the new Spring/Summer 2011 is not effective until February 1, they put together an Inspirations brochure with special pricing for the month of January.  Inspirations includes a "sneak peek" at products that will be introduced in February.  The best news is that there is very special pricing on the five stamp sets that are featured in the brochure.

This card was created using the new A Game stamp set - which is available for only $5 with purchase of the new Wings workshop-on-the-go.  The patterned paper in the Wings paper packet is a great combo of designs with the unusual color combo of Black, Juniper, Sweet Leaf, and Vineyard Berry.  Also used to complete the 'tic tac toe' phase was A Little Everything stamp set.

If you would like to view the Inspirations brochure, visit my CTMH website and click on the 'View January Inspirations' link in the lower right corner.   You can also click on the picture of the Inspirations brochure on the right side of this blog.  Or contact me and I will be glad to send you a copy of the brochure.  Also, watch for a blog post soon with more Inspirations details. 

Inspiration for the card design is from this week's Mojo Monday (MOJO172) blog, which was a challenge for me because I had trouble coming up with a sentiment that I liked.  What I ended up with is just a little silly, but thought it would be a fun birthday card.

  1. Love the sentiment & how you split it up!! Great choice of papers, too :)

  2. Such a cute card! While I love the butterflies and elegant stuff everyone else is focusing on, this is a refreshing change, and so fun. TFS.

  3. Very cute! I got this set too but haven't figured out how to use it yet! Never thought of a card. I love it!
