Fashionably Late

Hello, crafting friends!
It's Thursday and time for another fun board at the Tic Tac Toe challenge! I put together the board this week and have crammed it with all my favourite items - and I hope you'll love them too!

For my simple card, I went with the top row: CAS/Bright Colours/Butterfly - but I also added Birthday, Flowers, Die Cut and Leaves for good measure! No Sequins or Stripes but hey, I didn't want to over-egg the pudding!

The butterfly and flowers are from a beautiful Mama Elephant set called Butterfly Kisses. I stamped them onto a card panel using a pale green ink and coloured them with alcohol markers. The panel was trimmed to size with a stitched rectangle die by Heffy Doodle.

I added some details with a black fineliner pen and a fun sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Simply Stamped before mounting the panel onto a card base.

So now it's your turn! Which row or column are you going to choose? Or will you opt for one of the diagonals? Do hop over to the Tic Tac Toe challenge site to admire the amazing samples my teamies and our wonderful guest designer Tara have made to inspire you. You'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post and can use it to share your own creation with us. We can't wait to see what you make this week!

I'm joining in with We Love Stamping where Anything Goes with the option of Hot Sunny Colours; also Stamping Sensations, where the theme is Summer Flowers; and also The Flower Challenge where the theme is Clean and Simple.

My knee is now back to normal and I'd like to say a big thank you for your get well wishes! It was really painful but the worst thing was moving about like a 100 year old woman - and I do have a few years before that's supposed to happen! Unfortunately, I passed the baton to Eva who has now hurt her leg, poor love. She is having to rest it which is really hard because we have one of her pals, Murphy, staying with us, and of course all they want to do is play! The toys have been put away and I'm giving them extra cuddles instead. Murphy has to be walked by himself...

... although, to be fair, he seems to be having a reasonably good time!!

Sending hugs,


  1. What a beautiful card. You’ve coloured the image so well and I’m sure you’d be forgiven for being late with this beauty!!!

    Sorry to hear Eva has a bad leg. Hope she gets better soon. Murphy looks like he’s having enough fun for both of them !!!

  2. How sweet and classy CAS card! Your colouring looks awesome! Thanks so much for joining us at We Love Stamping!

  3. Simple understated elegance on todays card Vicky, you do them so well.

    Sorry about your knee, I missed that during my own body meltdown, frustratingly I'm still moving like that 100 year old, give it time the consultant said!!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Stamping Sensations and We Love Stamping July challenges.
