Paper Players 319 Tic Tac Toe

Happy Sunday, peeps!  It's my turn to host the Paper Players and this week, it's a Tic-Tac-Toe!  Wheee!  So many options!  Here's the grid:

For my card, I chose the left column:  red, Santa, and diecut, but it also fulfills the top row across, which is red, glitter and snowflakes!  I chose to make a little scene:

I used the Hearth & Home die along with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillsides to create my scene.  My sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket; I sponged the "siding" on the Crumb Cake card, added a red window frame, complete with a gingham curtain, snow in the corners and heaps on snow at the top and bottom:

And ho, ho, ho, who is that we see inside?

Jolly Saint Nick himself (Katy Sue's Silhouette Santas), placing a gift under a Lovely as a Tree Christmas tree!  They're stamped on Always Artichoke, which for some reason, is difficult for me to photograph!  The sentiment is from Amy R Stamps' Handy Christmas Greetings.  I added a few stamped snowflakes on the outside; the "snow" glitter is from Martha Stewart!

Now, I hope you'll find some inspiration in my tac-tac-toe board and play along with us!  Check out the amazing samples from the DT:

 Cassidy got another Halloween card in the mail; this one was from my very first Stampin' Up! customer, Maryanne!  She loves funny cards, especially interactive ones, and this one did not disappoint!  It featured a little scene with three spooky characters that move along the bottom of the card when you pull the ribbon:

She loved the vampire-looking dude the best!

And check out the cool stuff she put on the spiderweb inside!  Neat!

Hope you have a wonderful day full of blessings!

Oh my goodness I just love this LeAnne! I almost missed the Santa at first glance, because I was too busy ooh-ing and aah-ing over that red window and gingham curtain amidst the snow drifts, then I saw him - how fabulous! I love your sponged clapper board house too, so effective! I had so much fun with your board this week - and adore your fab Christmas card! Way to rock your challenge, my friend!

Wow, you've been such a busy stamper, LeAnne! I can't keep up with all your posts! Love your Santa in the window, especially the snow collected in the corners. You already know I loved this tic tac toe board, too!

LeAnne - putting Santa in the window is genius! I love the little touches of snow, especially with the gingham blind! Fabulous - and such a great tic-tac-toe challenge. I love the card that Cassidy received for Halloween, too. Thank you for sharing
