Welcome to the first monthly Blog Hop by Let’s Craft Together and thank you for joining us. We are a group of multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting.

Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a Tic Tac Toe theme which was created by Tracy Held and is shown below. I am really excited to have been invited to join such a talented group. I know you will be inspired by our hops.


The challenge involves selecting three boxes in a row in any direction to create a project. I chose to create an easel card because I love fun fold cards, to use Designer Series Paper and to make it a birthday card. So this is what I came up with.

I hope you are inspired by my card. I’d love to know what you think. Make sure you hop all the way around and see the inspiration that everyone has shared, and don’t forget to leave a comment. We all love to get comments on our projects.
