Embellish Magazine Hearts Challenge

Hey everybody! Happy Sunday! We had a WONDERFUL day at church today! We really liked it, and the praise and worship, was just what we have been needing! :)

Well I had a few minutes to post my cards for the Embellish Hearts Color Challenge. I made them at the first of the week and took pics of them, but I haven't had much time to post them. I have been busy trying to get some cards out for submission, so I haven't had alot of extra time! After tomorrow, maybe the other things (like my laundry) will get caught up! :)

I decided to make two cards for the challenge. I made one using Courtney's new stamp set. I love that set! And I made the other one for the St. Jude Card Drive, because the idea came to my mind and I just had to make it! I made a Tic Tac Toe game. I found a new package of little refrigerator magnets at the Goodwill store, month's ago and I knew I could use them for something. I cut the hearts using my Cricut and then adhered the magnets with sticky tape. A card, but yet a game! It was really easy and I think it will be played for hours!
Well here they are, I need to go wash clothes, some of our pipes busted this morning, (I think it was just Satan, trying to get us to skip church today, but it didn't stop us!) :)

I LOVE that grid layout Winter. Really enjoyed seeing it in this color combo as well as the combo for Dawn's challenge. Definitely a "keeper" sketch! So many possibilities. The tic tac toe card is ingenious as well!
