FINAL CHALLENGE: Challenge Twenty Two

Hello friends!

I hope this blog post finds you having a wonderful day. It is with a sad and heavy heart that I say we are closing the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge after this FINAL challenge. It was a very hard decision to make but one that Ka and I both know needed to be done. For those of you that don't know, Ka, the challenge creator was in a bad accident last November and since then she has been a whirl wind of craziness dealing with lawyers and insurances and coping with depression. As a Design Team Coordinator, I have tried my best to keep up with everything - the challenge, four wild kids, and a husband who travels for work, BUT I have been unsuccessful in doing so.

Ka and I both are so GRATEFUL to everyone who take part in making this challenge so successful. It takes a lot of energy to blog and we seriously couldn't have done it without the friends that helped get it started and the friends that are with us today.

Last but not least, THANK YOU to everyone that participated during each challenge. All of your creations were stunning and so inspirational. We loved looking at each of them and being mesmerized by how each of you interpreted the challenge and we cannot wait to see it again for one last time. You are all really talented!

So, for this final challenge, please use the challenge board below using three elements in a row of your choice. You can create in any way you like as long as we can see the elements in your design.


You are playing for one of the following 3"x 4" stamp sets. The winner will get to choose the stamp set of their choice. If you already have all three in your stash, why not play to give one of these sets as a gift for one of your crafty friend? You can click on the links below to read more about each stamp set.




And now for some over-the-top AMAZING inspiration from our INCREDIBLE design team members.



Nora used the first column down: Bling, White on White and Scene.



Rachel was inspired by the top row across: Bling, Die-Cut Alphas, and Texture.



Varada created two cards using the second row across: White on White, Use Dimension, and Vellum.



Channin also played with the second row across: White on White, Use Dimension, and Vellum.



Judy used the diagonal row: Scene, Use Dimension, and Texture.

Thank you for joining us in our 17th challenge. Please read the "Challenge Rules" tab at the top of the blog to be eligible for the prize. You have until Wednesday, November 30th at 11:55pm CST to submit your entries. We can not wait to see what you create! HAVE FUN!
