September Diva Dare


Welcome to September's Diva Dare!  This month's theme is "Tic-Tac-Toe" and the Divas are daring you to create a card inspired by a tic-tac-toe board.  For example, it could be X's and O's, hugs and kisses, circles, squares, a grid, you get the idea.  

I went with hugs and kiss (though most of that paper got covered up) and X's and O's because they go together like peanut butter and jam LOL!

Echo Park's Yours Truly papers from last year were a perfect fit as was my X's and O's embossing folder :)   I added my beloved Jotted Heart, a mix of sentiments from Love Notes and finished things off with some red seam binding from the Truly Madly Deeply ribbon set. 

Of course, where there is a Verve Diva Dare, there are prizes, and this month's dare provides two prizes: one for a randomly selected participant and one for a randomly selected commenter!  Worth participating for sure, because rumour has it there will be a Verve release coming soon, and a gift certificate would come in very handy wink, wink!
