RR145 Tic Tac Toe A Big Thanks

 Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Time for a new Retro Rubber challenge, where we give our older stamps some attention!  This week we have a Tic-tac-toe grid for you!  I chose the right column of metallics, masculine, and embossing for my card today:

Each week at church we pray for people in our community; it might be another church, our government leaders, that kind of thing.  Last week we prayed for our police chiefs, and the police chief in my community happened to grow up right across from us and went to school with my brother.  He and his brothers (who were an ornery bunch, LOL!!!!) are also big motorcycle fans!  So I made this card to encourage him and his force and let him know we appreciate them and are praying for them:

I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (which is over) but I still liked it and found that the  retired Urban Underground DSP was a perfect background for my heat-embossed motorcycle from Rev Up the Fun (2013):  

I even added some orange "flame" to the embossing as well as some silver Painty ink to the "chrome" parts!  The paper has some silver embossing on it as well, and I backed with with some silver foil!  The sentiment is from Perfectly Wrapped (2016) and it was diecut with the Stitched Rectangle die:

I mounted everything on a Whisper White card base that had been embossed with the retired Coastal Weave embossing folder!  I sure hope he liked it! And since the Just Add Ink  challenge is "Thank You", I am entering it there as well!

And now, what will you create with our fun grid?  LOTS of possibilities!  We hope you'll share yours with us at Retro Rubber; just make sure you use stamps that are at least a year old, and tell us the age!  Can't wait to see them!

I admire Dana; she is always trying to introduce some healthy recipes into their diet, but Cassidy gets in a rut sometimes and doesn't always want to try new things!  However, Dana made spaghetti squash "lasagne" a couple days ago and Cass actually liked it....she liked how the "spaghetti" came out of the squash, LOL!  She gave it a thumbs-up!  I think I might have to try this myself!  Thanks for popping by--enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, you are such a good person. I hope the 'ornery ol' thing' appreciates those prayers, and your darling card.
Move over Cassidy, I want a bite!

This is such a great way to thank a police officer! Love the sketch design and great papers. Even ornery folks grow up to be good folks, so there's hope for all of us :) I haven't had spaghetti squash in ages, but I like it as much as Cassidy does!

Would your daughter share her recipe. It looks like there is no red sauce in it and that is the only recipe I can find. It looks delicious! Thank you!

What a thoughtful gesture and card. Our policemen need all the encouragement and prayers they can get. I love spaghetti squash so I'm glad Cassidy gave it a try.
