Merry Monday #55 {Tic Tac Toe}

Welcome to my weekly Christmas card Challenge called "Merry Monday"! Each week, I post a challenge to inspire you to create a Christmas card for your Christmas card stash! I have a design team of 10 lovely ladies and we are all working on getting a Christmas card done each week! This is our last challenge with Tracey McNeely!! Tracey has made such adorable Christmas cards this month, I love her work! Thank you so much Tracey!

Our challenge this week is a TIC TAC TOE Challenge, where you get to choose any three squares in a row-up/down/diagonally! This week I decided to ink up a stamp I bought a few months ago but have not had the chance to ink yet from Impression Obsession called Santa Horses. I love these two horses and think it is such a sweet image. I used some scraps from my DSP bin and managed to add some ribbon, also from my stash! 

{Supplies Used}
Inks: Black and Cherry Cobbler
Papers: MME, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso & Vanilla
Extras: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, White Twine, Ribbon Scallop Punch

Welcome to our Guest Designer this week Donna Eckols!! She won our challenge a couple of weeks ago! She also made a 2nd card that I will post later on this week. Would you like to be a Guest Designer? Be sure to play along, as our weekly winner is our next Guest Designer!
