PP602 Tic Tac Toe Boo

Hi peeps!  Happy Sunday, and the last day of July!  Yikes, the summer is whizzing by!  Today, since it's the fifth Sunday, the Paper Players have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Claire!  Here's the grid she created:

I chose the top row across of yellow, person or animal (got them both!) and embossing!  Here we go:

I started with some Hues of Happines DSP....the "watercolor" side, in shades of yellow, and used a retired Stars embossing folder to emboss it.  I then diecut some little Poppy Whittles to create my kitty:

My pumpkins:

And my little pumpkin witch:

I added a sentiment from Scary Cute, diecut with a flower center from the retired Pierced Blooms!  Each little set of diecuts was mounted on some Smoky Slate cardstock, diecut with a Stylish Shapes circle die, and I did add some spooky "clouds" with Versamark ink and a stamp from the retired Label Me Bold set.  Each element was shaded with a Blend, and the witch's little dress was diecut with some retired Plaid Tidings DSP.  The pumpkins and the witch had a wee bit of Gold Wink of Stella applied to their mouths to make them look like they are glowing---you'll have to take my word for it!  My sketch is a cute one from Amy over at FMS:

On the inside, I combined an old Paper Pumpkin Christmas stamp with another sentiment from Scary Cute, and used the retired Ornate Frames dies:

I had so much fun making this card!  I hope you'll have some fun and play along with our grid as well!  Be sure to stop over at the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers came up with!  Thanks for visiting today!

As promised, here are a few of the beautiful birthday cards I received:

This beauty is from my stamping friend and church co-worker, Robyn; I just love the colors and papers she used!

My Paper Players teamie Ann wowed me with this one:

And another PP teamie, Laurie, (who is the QUEEN of dies), sent me this fun card! Just adorable!

And my upline Pennie sent me this elegant creation:

Thanks so much, ladies!  And everyone enjoy their day and be blessed!

You've given those whittles the main stage and they so deserve it! Something about that Sketch kept my brain thinking you were using the diagonal on the board! Silly brain! Fabulous card[s]!
