Crafting for all Seasons #81 "Tic Tac Toe"

Good morning all. Sorry again that I've not been around much lately. 
I'm waiting at the moment for test results to find out whether I have coeliac disease or just a gluten intolerance....at least I now know why I've been suffering random ailments on and off for several months.

Well wedding no three has been put to bed and now all that's left to do is enjoy the day tomorrow! We're off down to the hotel later today so we don't have to rush tomorrow as hubby is chauffeuring the bride and the service is at 1.30pm. Unfortunately the weather forecast is dismal tomorrow so I don't think we'll be having tea on the terrace but I'm sure the day will be no less enjoyable.

It's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Tic Tac Toe". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by The Paper Shelter who gave the DT images to work with. I've chosen to use an image and papers from Rose.

It's the bride to be's birthday on Friday and this is the card I have made her. I've printed the backing paper twice and mounted them onto kraft card. The pre-coloured image has been die cut and mounted onto kraft also; dies from Spellbinders. The twine flower was made on my flower loom which I've had since I was a child! The wooden button is one left over from the wedding stationery and the sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie.

Here is the Tic Tac Toe square for you to use, I've used the diagonal Pink, Purple and Blue....there is some purple on the image and button though it's not very obvious on the photos.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
