~tic tac toe valentine~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
We are having a taste of winter here in Pittsburgh. It's been snowing on and off since last night. It's not sticking and we have had about 2" here in our community. Although we had to drop my card off at the shop right after dinner and it was starting to get icy. The salt trucks were out but it could be a rough commute tomorrow morning.
This was one of those days when some comfort food for dinner seemed like a good idea. So after preschool I went to the market and picked up the ingredients to make a meat loaf.
I used a new recipe and made this cheeseburger meatloaf. It was so full of flavor. My hubby loved it and I did as well. I rolled the meatloaf like a jellyroll with the cheese in the middle. It was a nice combo of ingredients and flavor.
Lately when I buy red meat, I am getting either black angus or the grass fed beef. What a difference in taste and no antibiotics or growth hormones. Its a bit pricier but then can you put a price tag on your health?
Now onto my card for today. I made this one for the ways to use it challenge #569 on Splitcoaststampers. Sabrina was the hostess and she wanted us to use tape of some sort on our cards.
I wanted to make a Valentine  X & O card using washi tape. I didn't have any black tape so I used the red that was in my stash. For the X & O's I used black alphabet stickers. Added a flag, stamped my sentiment used some twine and a button and I have another Valentine card made.
Well, it's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.

  1. What a fab post - a super card, a great idea for using Washi tape (I get very challenged by Washi tape) and on top of that a scrumptious sounding new recipe to try - thank you very much, and thanks for sharing your card at Cardz 4 Guyz

  2. I love the dotted tape, it made the cutest tic tac toe!! A perfect card Mary :) By the way Im with you on grass fed, our health is important!

  3. What a clever design for your card! Love the tape! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy.

  4. What a cute way to use Xs and Os - especially with those alphabet stickers, where the Xs tend not to get used very often! Thanks for making Cards in Envy part of your crafting fun.
