Tic-Tac-Toe 3x Three in a Row!


Remember playing tic-tac-toe as a kid?  HangmanDots and Boxes?

Such simple pleasures and cherished smiles revolve around those less complicated, simpler times….

But life moves on….

Times change…

Do kids today still play tic-tac-toe?  On paper?

I love technology, but I also love paper – – –  For example – with books and reading … I sometimes read a book on my iPad, sometimes I listen to a book through Audible on my iPhone, and other times I love holding and turning the pages of a real book!  And sometimes I do all three with the same book – especially when I need to get through one for a book club deadline! 🙂

Anyway – we can dwell on the past reminisce or go with the flow and change with the times.

So it was fun to see The Paper Players offer a Tic-Tac Toe Challenge this week.  My first!  You had to choose any three items combined across, down or diagonal to make your card or project.

And my goal was to see how many ways I could get three in a row in one card!

Here is the tic-tac-toe challenge, and I got Three in a Row THREE ways with this card!

Can I get a WOOHOO?

And here is my card challenge submission:

PP211I got:

Birthday – Yellow – Patterned Paper:  First Row Down

Birthday – Green – Button:  First Row Across

Patterned Paper – Ribbon – Purple:  Third Row Across

Fun stuff – eh?!?!  🙂

Ok – I know I know – I’m easily amused…

But the best part is that I get to send this birthday card to a very special someone who has a birthday coming up next week!

And to that special lady – I wish for her to know that you can never have too much happy.  I also want her to know what happiness she has brought to my life!

Love ya Joyce!  May you smile, giggle, laugh, and enjoy your day and year!  xo

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. Jodi, your card is as delightful as your post! LOVE that it’s also a triple threat with 3 rows completed. On top of that, all your details and colors are just awesome. Great job. So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!


    • Thanks Nance! It was fun to get three TIC TAC TOES! It’s been a long time! 🙂 Just thinking about it makes me smile and reminisce. I think the older I get the fonder I grow of remembering simple every day pleasures. I love playing along with the Paper Players! You are a great bunch!


  2. Oh, I just love this….great composition using great sets! The inside is adorable too! I, too, remember playing these games as well and although I feel like I never won at tic-tac-toe, at least I can still make a card for a TTT challenge, LOL! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week!
