which means you just have to choose a line of 3 from the choices that are given.
You can find all the details at the challenge blog .......easy-peasy!

Pauline (our boss lady) always does a grand job of linking us up with fabulous sponsors, and this week we are back with the delightful

As always, our randomly chosen winner is in for a treat, and this week it's 2 sheets of the wonderful digis that can be found over at 
which is the equivalent of 8 images....yaaaay!

Our Design Team have come up with some fabulous inspiration, so check them out by clicking on their names, in my sidebar!
Here's my effort..........

How cute are these two, on their lemonade stall?
I went for the bottom line, on the tic tac toe grid.....embossing, colour blue and diecuts.
I used a mask to emboss the blue background paper, which was then layered onto white card, and then pink dotty card.......

The cutie twosome were coloured up with Promarkers and cut out with a deckle-edge Nestie label, and popped onto a scrap of blue flowery paper.....added a teeny stitched scrap of blue paper which I'd cut into a tab shape, and stitched on a dem buttons!

I cut the picket fence, then embossed it.......then this flippin' bird landed on it....haaaa!

Ooooh, just noticed that I also did a bit of me stitchin', around the edges of the blue paper.......soooo relaxing to do!  I chose a fun font from the 'puter, printed it up, then cut into a little sentiment shape...inked and treated to a couple of ben ......that means finished in Welsh...haaa!

So, get cracking on playing a little Tic Tac Toe, and I can pop over and tell you why I don't like it how lovely your creation have to be in it to win it!

  5. I was going to write something funny quoting your "{why I don't like it} how lovely your creation is", but it appears you can't score through words in the comment box!! So I suppose I'll just say I like it! ;-p
    I really really need to get my sewing machine out and start adding stitching onto my cards but I have a bit of a sewing machine phobia! It's a really sweet digi you've used and the bow underneath is a lovely detail.
