Happy Thursday my crafty friends! I’m hoping everyone is doing well. I read a quote last night and it says: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined. This quote has me written all over it. I started a new job last September so life has been a little busy.

This week I played middle row across (Red, Free, Love Sentiment). I could have easily played top left diagonal row down as well. I hope you link up and join us this week for some Tic Tac Toe with a crafty twist!

For my design this week I created a quilted background with the Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop out of Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red Cardstock. I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You Heart die out of Neenah Solar White Cardstock. 
I smeared the heart with Tsukineko Dew Drop Galaxy Gold Pigment Ink to give it a brushed wood look. I added a few gold drops and Tonic Nuvo Gold Gilding Flakes to add a little pop to my design. My art panel was adhered to a  (4.25 x 5.50) MFT Grout Gray card base. Hope you’ll take a peek at the rest of the Design Team and our Guest Designer this week.
