Happy birthday Designed to Color! Let's play!

morning, chickens!  it's a very exciting day in the blogosphere, you know.  if you haven't caught wind of some of the hints we've dropped in the Designed to Color Facebook group, then i think it's time you checked out the DTC BLOG!  it's our FIRST BIRTHDAY, and we are celebrating, but we want you to join us!  :)

first of all, thank you, to everyone who's followed, shared, participated, offered feedback, submitted to the magazine, and shown support over the last year +.  if it weren't for your enthusiastic crafty peeps, we wouldn't be doing this!

second, i KNOW you all like getting your craft on, and i KNOW you all like winning stuff.  well then you might want to play along with our birthday Tic-Tac-Toe!  we have some totally HOT sponsors lined up, and some HOTTER prizes for you to win!

well i wanted to play along with today's event, and we have lots more fun coming your way over the next few days, so join us, be inspired, create things, and GOOD LUCK!  :)

here's my card for our Tic-Tac-Toe game:

there's loads of gorgeous paper from BasicGrey's "two scoops" line - an oldie but a goodie!  plus stamps from The Greeting Farm (Blush Babette) and Some Odd Girl (balloons from Kaylee's Closet: Party Time and banner from Angel Gwen), twine from My Mind's Eye, stickers from My Little Shoebox (Rose)...  doodled up with a Sharpie marker, and voila! 
OH, and Babette's coloured with Spectrum Noir pens (yep, i'm diggin' 'em, but i still have a LOT of learning to do, and am only working with 12 colours!)...  here's the rundown:

skin: FS2, FS3
eyes: EB2
hair: IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG8
dress: PP1
trim/socks/shoes: IG1, IG2, IG4

so...  the Tic-Tac-Toe?  here's the grid:

i went straight down the middle!  you can do any line of 3 elements - you just need to have something COLOURED on your project.  wanna know what you can win?  of COURSE you do!  here's our lineup of sponsors:

kinda seriously nifty, right?  Yumi and Fumi and DTC are offering up the first prize package, but anyone joining our festivities will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing, too, which is just ridic.  :)  play along by CLICKING HERE...  the clock's tickin'!
