TTTC84 Fall Blessings

 Happy Thursday (again), peeps!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge for Team X!!  Here is our fun board for this week:

While on vacation I saw a rustic barnboard sign and I thought it would be fun to re-create it!  I went searching for a sentiment that would work for my "barnwood" and here's what I came up with!  My tic-tac-toe is the top row across of plaid, pumpkin and thankful:

I inked up my Pinewood Planks embossing folder with some Cajun Craze ink and ran it through a piece of Terracotta Tile DSP to create my "board".  Actually, since it's a slimline card, I had to run it through twice; the plaid ribbon that I have been hoarding for years is covering up the line that it made when I ran it through the second time!!

My pumpkin is from CTMH's Hello Pumpkin, stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze; the leaves and sentiments are from Right At Home's Grateful Heart, stamped in Early Espresso and colored with Blends:

I used Early Espresso as my card base and added a Very Vanilla panel on the inside, stamping a lovely sentiment and some berries and acorns from the same set:

As my card measures 6 1/4" x 3", I created a custom envelope for it as well using my Envelope Punch Board, sadly retired.  The only thing I would have done differently if I made this again is to use a different color cardstock, as I think the Terracotta Tile is a little too "pink" for the effect I was going for!  But all in all, I was happy with the outcome!  And since this is a slimline card, I am entering it at Shopping Our Stash!

So...will you play Tic-Tac-Toe with us this week?  I am sure there is a favorite combination on our board that will tickle your fancy!  Share it with us!  And thanks for popping by!

And here are some more fall pix to tickle your fancy as well:

And here is my little collection of yard-sale-find owls...I'll add more Halloween decor once October hits!

That little one just cracks me up!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, that little ribbon is SO pretty - I'd still be hiding it!!! What a gorgeous 'barn board' you've created in the most beautiful color! It's been some time since I've inked up an embossing folder - I'd forgotten how gorgeous it is! Thanks for this beautiful reminder!

Lisa Elton said...

WOW, the depth on those planks is out of this world fabulous! This is delightful from the pretty ribbon right down to that sweet polka dot pumpkin!

Wendy said...

Gorgeous Fall card, LeAnne! Love everything about it especially that pretty plaid ribbon! And all your stinkin cute!

Bonnie said...

I love how the ink and embossing worked together for this fantastic background! What a fun dotted pumpkin! Your Fall decorations are so pretty! Your leaves are probably starting to change too! I love the colors of Fall!

LeAnne, I love how you created this plank of wood with your embossing folder, beautiful colors on all the elements on this card, and that ribbon.....I know how hard it is to use certain ribbons, believe me, but I'm so happy you shared it today with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH.
Hope you play along next time.

Love the thinking behind your card LeAnne - it really does look like a home decor sign. Your porch decorations are lovely too.
