TicTacToe at Hambo

I've seen so many playing at Hambo Hoedown's progressive challenge and decided to jump on the band wagon and play along this week - and hopefully in the following weeks as well.  Since this is the first time I've played along I'm using one of the freebies from Hambo.   After linking your card and e-mailing it to the Hoedown's DT, you get an image for the next challenge.  The theme of the challenge this week is Tic Tac Toe.  The three "squares" I selected were Ribbon, Diecut, and Button.
More yellow....But this very "cool cat" just looked so cute in his yellow inner-tube so I had to use yellow again on this card.  I used a rectangle nestie to make the frame around Mr. Cool and added some Liquid Glass to the inner-tube to give it a little shine.  The bow was made with my Bow Easy and then a small button placed in the center.  A very simple card but think it turned out cute with this darling little image.
Thanks for stopping by............
Lynn

He does look nice and cool in that float. I can go for that for sure!!! Love the glossyness on the tube (yes, glossyness is a word!!)

Thank you for you sweet comments on Layla's passing. I appreciate the sentiments

You have such a talent with blue and yellow as a combo. I can always look to you for inspiration when I'm trying to do something with those. Mr. Cool is so fabulous! Wish I was as cool as he is! Hadn't heard about the progressive at Hambo -- will have to go check that out (like I really have time for one more fav challenge each week, right?)

I have never tried Hambo, but then again, I need to work on my funny cards and I think you might be enabling me :). This is too cute and I love the glossy accents on the inner tube. Well off to Hambo.....Have a great day, well as best as it can get at 105, yippee a cool down from 108!
