Good evening
This week over at the Cuttlebugspot Nilda asked us to take inspiration from a childhood game for our projects.I chose to make a card using the game noughts and crosses /tic tac toe which I remember being taught to play as a child.. XOX and OXO now represents hugs and kisses so I decided to make a Valentine card for the man in your life who doesn't like frills!
My card is 5 1/2x5 1/2" square and I created some background word paper on my computer. The embossed square is Cuttlebug Plaid folder which I got from Cricut rewards and comes in a Christmas set. The folder is 5x7"so I just cut out a nine square and matted on Black card and pop dotted on to my card. I added  black and white polka dot buttons threaded with red thread for the 'o's and the 'x's are cut in red card using my Cricut and Cutting Up cart at 1 1/2"
Please pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see the fabulous projects the DT have created using childhood games as their inspiration and we would love to see your take on the challenge.
Thamks for visiting today and have a great week!

Julie, Fabulous Card girlfriend! I use to play that game tic tac toe, even as an adult. Love the way you made it into a valentine card, just perfect for a male card.
