Some friends played along with a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge by Double Trouble. I’d never seen any of their challenges, so I went and checked it out. Had fun with this one, which is also going towards 2 other challenges, one for The Paper Funday Challenges, and one for Hero Arts.

To make this, I used 3 different patterned papers. Two were from a Gina K Designs set and I don’t remember where the third came from. I also used two Hero Arts stencils for the background, the first was a leaf like one with some crackle paste that I added green acrylic paint to. It was a pretty rich green when I mixed it, but dried to this aqua color. Then used some ink and some Nuvo sparkle spray through another, over the top. The pumpkin was from a brass embossing stencil that I used ink through, them embossing paste. The Thanks was die cut with a Stampin’ Up! set of word dies.

I had fun with this one, as I tried different things to create it.

For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge on Double Trouble Challenge, for Thing 1, I used the Pumpkin, Patterned Paper, and Embossing or Stencil down the left column. Hey, I even got the top row: Pumpkin, Leaf, Dies; and the cross top left to bottom right as I used fall colors. Got the top right to bottom left cross, too. Okay, this is fun. For Thing 3, it is a sentiment card. For Thing 2, I did the Paper Funday Challenge of a Thanks card. Hero Arts was also a Thank You card challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Thanks card for all these challenges. Have a great rest of your Thanksgiving weekend!
