Magical Monday; Tic-Tac-Toe Element Chart

Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.netfor the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Toni

Toni (mom) I believe I have your snail mail address to magicintheair@att.net so I will get this out to you soon. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week for our challenge we are going to use the following chart to come up with an element combination to use on your card.

The way this works is pick three elements in a row like a tic-tac-toe position from the chart below. (Example: Stitching, button, some kind of heart; or button, ribbon or flower; or tag, flower, ric-rac; etc.) You do not have to use your elements in a tic-tac-toe manner, that is just how you pick what elements you are going to use in any way. You can use as much of those same elements as you like as long as you use all three of them at least once. You may also add other elements, but again as along as the tic-tac-toe elements are on your card at least once. If you have any questions regarding this challenge, please feel free to contact me if you aren't clear on the challenge instructions. Sometimes I have a hard time explaining clearly, so just ask, but it really is pretty easy peasy. :O)

You do not need to use one of our digital images to play along, but of course we would love to see a Paper Cupcakes image used (and it is super cute this week!). Please note: Everyone that uses a Paper Cupcake's image will be entered into the drawing twice to win.

If you don't have a Paper Cupcake's image and would like to use one you can find the below image "Sent With Love" HERE; Or if you like you can always pick your own out at the Paper Cupcake's store which you can find HERE.

"Sent With Love" is no longer available for free... if by chance you missed this freebie, you can now find this image in my store Paper Cupcakes)

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates and follows this weeks challenge and links their work back here will get to pick two images of their choice from my store Paper Cupcakes.

Now for the oh so talented...

I am new to this site. I tried to follow the download directions, but when I save the image it has the copyright words accross the image. Anyone have any suggestions for me?

I can't find where to download this gorgeous little bird either. I think I have gone blind looking :o)
