Tic, tac, toe...

This is a Valentine I made for some of my grandsons. It's always a challenge to make one that isn't too "girly" for them, but still incorporates the loving spirit of Valentine's Day.

I found this little unbranded tic, tac, toe die-set online, so I ordered it for just this purpose! It even included the skinny arrow underneath the sentiment.

Here you can see how I've popped my little hearts up on foam squares.

I love being able to add a little dimension this way.

Both my front and inside sentiments were computer-generated.

This was a quick card to make, once my computer file was set up and printed. The only fiddly part was dealing with the x's and o's. I kept losing them in my messy work space!!

We are staying inside today (Saturday), sitting by the fireplace with a nice fire flickering away. That is the ONE nice thing about a Minnesota winter - sitting by the fire.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Fun little card. Kids love playing tic-tac-toe. You've won this game with those popped up hearts.

Fun card Cheryl, definitely not too girlie (I have the same problem but find it nearly impossible to butch up!).

What a fun card for grandsons - love the tic-tac-toe game die.

Cool dies and you used them so well. Yes, it was a good day to stay inside! We were supposed to go out of town, but decided to not risk it. We did have some company, though, so they had to leave home! :)
