Geometrical Birthday for Paper Players #189

Hello stamping friends! This week at the Paper Players, the always-awesome Nance is our hostess with a tic-tac-toe challenge. I love these many options to get your creative mojo working. I went with the top line of the tic-tac-toe board, using a birthday theme with punches and twine.
The Geometrical stamp set was one we received at the Stampin' Up Leadership Conference back in January. I haven't really given this stamp set it's fair share of ink, so I really wanted to use it for this challenge.  It's a "happy" stamp set. I paired it up with the coordinating Kaleidoscope DSP and Triangle punch, which I was ridiculously excited to earn from the Leadership event. I got up in front of the crowd and shared one of my most embarrassing stamping stories. Eek! I'm not proud of that embarrassing story, but I do love this bight and cheery card.  I added some twine and rhinestones, because bling really makes EVERYTHING happier! :)
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, April 4th, 2014 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.

Before I sign off, I just wanted to share one of my favorite photos of two special kitties. Benny (my 24 pound Maine Coon) isn't usually cuddly with the other cats. He prefers to stand alone and take the spotlight for himself. Recently, my little tripod "ginger kitty" Triple has become infatuated with his big brother and is always by his side. I love that Benny has taken to nurturing him. I almost fainted when I saw them cuddled up together.
