Let's play Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe!

You know how this works: just pick any column, row, or diagonal on our special ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ tic-tac-toe board, and incorporate all three items into your holiday card!

Here's what we made this week:

Stephanie says, "My Tic-Tac-Toe is across the top (technically my little ticket corner punches qualify me for one of the diagonal rows as well).  The recycled card base has beautiful dry embossed texture and includes a patriotic snowman design that will be perfect for several people on my holiday card list.  I've also included gorgeous gold glitter paper from DCWV (If you haven't tried this stuff you should ... all of the glittery sparkle with absolutely no mess).  I finished with a little bit of black bling in the corner."

Lauren says, "I didn't consciously set out to *MATCH* the tic-tac-toe board, lol, but I did create these two items back to back, and it just sort of happened! Of course, you needn't incorporate ANYTHING from the board except whatever three consecutive items are in your row or column. I chose the middle horizontal row, so I've got an abundance of xmassy flowers, the color red or green (ok, BOTH, actually!) and some fabulous plaid vintage ribbon I pinched from my mother's sewing room... shhhhhh... don't tell, ok?! I used the current layout from Feeling Sketchy to guide my design."

And now we cannot wait to see what ♥YOU♥ will do with our Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe! Pick a row, any row; get crafty... and be sure to link up here before 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, August 28th! Keyword for galleries and the Flickr group is JB:13:17.

Fabulous cards as always ladies. Love the recycled snowman (with his distinctively Dutch hat lol) and I wish I had a piece of the vellum that Lauren used. I think I'd better get crafty this weekend or I will miss the deadline yet again.
