TIC...TAC...LOVE! You'll Love to Play Along with Anything But a Card Challenges No. 32

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Groundhog Day! Can you see your shadow this AM??? Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and those that created art journal pages for Diana's mini-challenge. Stay tuned for a new "Spotlight and Mini-Challenge" at the bottom of the month at the end of Challenge No. 32.

It's time for a new challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges... so get ready to play and have some fun! Congratulations to all of you who started off the new year and put your thinking caps on for Challenge #31 "Balance".

The new Challenge... Anything But a Card Challenge #32 - Tic...Tac...LOVE!! Our fabulous team of creatives put our heads together to put a visual twist on a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. The concept is the same... take your pick of three in a row! Don't forget our three little rules {listed on the sidebar or tab at top}.

Please choose your Tic-Tac-Toe row
 to use as your creative mojo!
{either straight across, down or diagonal}

Choose your direction and follow
the key below for square descriptions:

1.) Red
2.) Recycling
3.) Glitter {can be loose or liquid type like Stickles}
4.) Bling it ON! {beads, gems, buttons, sequins and baubles - the sparkly bits}
5.) Heart
6.) Sprays and Mists
7.) Ribbons, Fibers and Trims... oh MY!
8.) Black
9.) Lace

Please share any current project you have created and JUST REMEMBER... create anything EXCEPT a card for this challenge. Please mention and LINK BACK to this challenge. ALSO - Please new projects only {no-backlinking}. :)

**A REMINDER** This Challenge will go through midnight February 22nd giving you 3 weeks to play along and ENJOY the creative process! We will share more of our Design Team's creations each Sunday to keep you inspired.

Let's see what part of our DT has created!!

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog. We hope you’ll take a minute to go see their work up close... and as long as you’re there – please leave them a little love!

The recycled item that began my make was truly waste - wasted glue - from an upturned bottle, which reminded me of tears.
The loss of my brother at this time 6 years ago was like a hammer blow to my heart. Now, there are no tears, just sweet and beautiful memories of our Gentle Giant who left so suddenly. Please visit my blog for more details!
I've been on an art journaling kick this week, and figured I would stick with it for the challenge this week. I used the line that includes red, recycle, and glitter. I did however also include sequins, black, and sprays or mists as well. Just in case you can't see the recycle part, it's the corrugated cardboard (a dunkin donut sleeve) and the glitter is the middle of the feathers! Check out my blog for more details!

I've made a Valentine matchbook which can be used for romantic notes, gift cards or the promise of a treat such as a meal for two or even a trip to somewhere exotic! I used the vertical centre line: Recycling; Heart and Black. The matchbook is made from Amazon packaging and the glass wired beads are from Christmas crackers. (I chose to make my heart black and silver rather than red - hope that's ok??!)  Please visit my blog for more details!


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
