Tic Tac Toe Second Helpings!

The Tic Tac Toe Challenge might want to think about setting limits ... here comes a little card for row #3 on the board:


Background stamping, a second helping of my first use of those MFT Cat-itude stamps, and a MFT rectangle frame - okay, I confess I just couldn't dispose of any little piece of this!  Leaving those characters on the outside frame un-touched looks kinda cute, right? 

Inside sentiment:
"To say we like you more than dead fish would be an understatement!"
This is a total homage to Donna's darling card! 
Thanks again, Donna, for inspiring enabling me! 
 
edited to add:  thank you!!
 

Thank YOU Stamping Smiles Designs for this fun new challenge!  This next card is just for fun - I'm thinking nobody could take thirds of fish:

In memory of our Calvin & Hobbes  =]

Pawsome, alright!! How cool are these stamps!?! You have given me an idea with that first one... Perfect timing...I will keep you in suspense for a little while yet, then look out for the CAS(E)! You know me, I'm a mossy stone...

Lindsey said...

Oh, I love these, too! I think the uncolored border is a fantastic idea...must try that out. :) And your second card is equally wonderful, my friend!

Michele! We both just burst out laughing at your first cat fish card and that brilliant sentiment ... thought about designing stamps?? Love the popped up panel ... brilliant colouring! Sweet second card ... and yes, I could take thirds of any of your cards! Hugs, Anita :)

Pawsome you joined us again, Michele! I am really loving background stamping these days. You really sparked my interest with how you used the frame and left the border portion of the images uncolored. I will be trying this soon. =)

Definitely cute, Michele. I've seen that technique and always say I'm going to do it but. . . You beat me to it and it looks terrific.

Barb Ghig said...

Oh my gosh, your cards are absolutely adorable, Michele! I love how you framed out the colored images on the first one, and left the B&W border...so fun! Love your cute little fish bowl, too! Such darling whimsical cards, and I love them both to pieces :)
