This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. Yep, for sure I have lost my MoJo! This is not my fav but got head to work so I am looking for ideas. Should have looked through the SC235 gallery before I made this for inspiration. I do not do well with square cards so I used a vertical sentiment from Hambo inked with choc chip and made a regular A2 size. When I 1st saw the sketch I thought Tic-Tac-Toe. I love that game and dh will not play this or checkers with me bc he says I get him trapped so no matter which way he moves I win. (insert grin here). LOL. I usually take the X's so as you can see I let him win this round. I think I will put thin in front of the coffee machine for him to find tomorrow morning after I am at work. He is off so he will get to sleep in (insert pout here). I used this darling wild west alphabet that I just had to have and have not inked up but 1 time. The X's and O's were stamped in choc chip on vanilla then matted on choc chip. I wanted to use a thin brown ribbon across the middle line to identify the winner but could not do that over my sentiment. So any ideas how to make me convert this into a likable creation?

Awesome, this is super cool!

this works for me. I KWYM about no tic tac toe...I have the opposite problem, my 7yo son always beats me (ok, I admit, sometimes I let him, but not always!) at those strategy games. Glad he's learned how to play solitaire!
