Day #8 Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Let's Play Tic-Tac-Toe with Gail


It's Gail here, friends, and I'm having me a little
The Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge, 2023.

This month we are remembering our friend Janis Woolbright who passed away in January this year. Many of you may have known Janis from her Cat Lovers Hop, or crossed her path on various challenges, or you may have been the recipient of love and comments from her.

Today we are launching an additional game for you to play along with. I have gone though some of Janis' blog posts and pulled out a number of cards featuring techniques and themes that Janis liked to use, and I have put them together in a Tic-Tac-Toe board. This game is independent of the main Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge and has it's own linky at the bottom of this page. Please remember, you can only make a card for the Tic-Tac-Toe and also enter it in the main challenge if your card features a FESTIVE FELINE. However, you can link it up to other challenges on other sites. This of course means you actually have more chances at all the amazing sponsor prizes that are available this month at Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge.

Here's the board I put together with Janis's awesome cards.
Please, make a CHRISTMAS CARD using three options from the board - you can go across, up/down or diagonally!

Enter your card in the Linky below and I cannot wait to see what you create using Janis' beautiful work as your inspiration!

You can enter a max 3 cards for
the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, and it's open until
Monday, 30th October - 11.55 pm BST

If you visit my blog here you can see my Tic-Tac-Toe card and find out about a giveaway I have on offer!

Hugz, Gail.

  1. I hope lots of people join in with this extra challenge and if you have time, grab a cup of your favourite and hop over and take a look at Janis' blog posts. I am sure there will be cards and techniques that bring back memories. Thanks for letting me take over for the day Jo. Hugz

  2. I LOVE this! What a wonderful idea Jo and Gail! Such beautiful thoughtfulness has gone into this challenge using Janis' creative cards that she loved doing so much - she would be sooooo smitten with it all! I'm sure she is smiling down on us all xx

  3. I am excited about this bonus challenge! I love Gail's Tic-Tac-Toe board featuring Janis's cards, what a purrfect way to honour her memory by being inspired by her beautiful cards! I love this, and will definitely be back to join in! Thank you to both Gail and Jo for coming up with this brilliant idea!

  4. What a fabulous concept this is to honor Janis! Can't wait to play along. Three more cards, right?! I always wanted to enter more than the 5 cards Janis allowed (she wouldn't budge! LOL) so this gives me a way to make a total of 9 - yay!! lol
