It’s week three for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and I was ready!  Looking at the designer’s wonderful samples, many ideas started popping into my head. I was thinking of a blue denim shirt with a pocket, paired with a butterfly stamp I received as a gift. The butterfly isn’t in the current catalog, but it’s new to me, and I was looking forward to using it. So, I chose the top row arcoss: Blue-Butterfly-Bow.


The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper has a print just like the fabric I had in my mind. This slightly faded shirt might even be hanging in my closet. Now let’s talk about this cute pocket! The seamstress did a pretty good job of lining up the pattern, don’t you think? It comes from the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle with stamps for the stitching and dies to cut out the pieces. This pocket tab says “THX,” but there are several choices in the set. It’s the perfect size for checks, money and gift cards, so I know I’ll be using it for future gift-giving occasions. Today it’s the landing spot for this beautiful butterfly, colored with the watercolor pencils shown below.


My last decision was the bow. I decided to “tie” it together with Linen Thread that would match the khaki (Crumb Cake) pants (card base). You should join in the fun at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. It’s easy to find squares you can use; I ended up using stitching and yellow accidentally!
