SIP 94 Tic Tac Toe

Hi stampers!  Hope your week is starting well...we had a perfectly HOT day yesterday, very odd for April; in fact, the whole spring has been crazy weather-wise!  But I'll take it!  Today, our Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a tic-tac-toe, just in time for those last-minute Easter cards!

No automatic alt text available.
For my card, I chose the left vertical column of pink, bunny and diecut!  And here we go:

I wanted to use the bunny from Every Occasion...I am so sad it is retiring, I barely had enough time to use it!  (Did you see the retired list?  I haven't had much time to look through it, but I did see a few favorites that are not returning!)  There are lots of fun little images in this set, and I thought this one was extra-sweet! I stamped the bunny image in Sweet Sugarplum, fussy-cut it out and mounted  it on a double wreath from Swirly Scribbles.  I added some flowers, a little sentiment and a linen thread bow!  To complement the little greenery on the bunny, I heat embossed the background panel with a retired Cornish Heritage Farms background stamp with white craft ink and white embossing powder.  I framed it all with a stitched frame from Pretty Pink Posh:

This color is really growing on me, I am loving it more and more!  

I hope you will stop by the SIP blog to see what the other designers did with the tic-tac-toe board, and then share your creation with us as well!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I took Cassidy to Longwood Gardens yesterday...actually, we did lots of stuff yesterday (and I was beat!), but I'll share more photos during the week!  Here are a couple from the treehouses:

I really love how this one looks like she is holding a ray of sun!!

And checking out some catfish in the lake:

It was a beautiful way to spend a beautiful day!  Be blessed!

Love it when there is a tic tac toe challenge! That frame is gorgeous, your embossing is spectacular, the entire card is wonderful. Cassidy IS a ray of sunshine! We never made it to Longwood when we lived up north but a friend of mine went and she said it was awesome. She took lots of pics so I got to go there through her and now you. Life is good!

Really pretty Easter card, LeAnne! I SO love that scalloped stitched frame and your pretty embossed background! The swirl wreath with the bunny & flowers is the perfect focal point of your card and as for me....I love Sweet Sugarplum, too! Great pictures from your visit to Longwood Gardens with Cassidy! It sure did get pretty warm yesterday, didn't it? My phone says 84 for today! I'll take it! TFS and enjoy this beautiful day! :)
