The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac Toe

Another fun Tic-Tac-Toe at The House That Stamps Built from our leader Wendy:

No automatic alt text available.

I chose the top row, dimension-light house-sponging.  If you are a regular
follower you know nautical, bears and butterflies all make regular appearance
on my blog so it was a given that I would choose the lighthouse.  This one
3003-K, Cape Hatteras Light is a new one on my stash (thanks Wendy) after
stamping it, I also embossed it and cut is out with my Scan and Cut to layer for
 added  dimension, also added numerous die cut layers, sponged clouds,
 added a 6104-J, Birthday Vertical and a cute little fish for additional dimension.
This lighthouse will be seeing a lot of ink!
Hope you will link up this week for a chance to win the monthly drawing for a

Repeat Impressions stamps get an extra entry. See discount code
