ShowCASe Your Style: Challenge #1: Theme

Hello and welcome to our very first ShowCASe Your Style challenge!

We are a brand new challenge blog dedicated to CAS (clean & simple) crafting.  We'll post a new challenge here every other Saturday, and you'll have almost 2 weeks to link up your creations.

Our challenge blog is run in association with Clearly Whimsy Stamps and is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps, who are generously offering a $10 gift certificate to the randomly-selected winner of each challenge.  (If the winning entry uses Clearly Whimsy Stamps products, the gift certificate will be increased to $15).

The design team will also be selecting our favorite entry from each challenge, who will be crowned "Style Queen", along with our "Style Favorites".

Our theme for challenge #1 is this tic tac toe board compiled by Debbie. You may either follow the rules of tic tac toe and choose 3 items in a row to create your card, or you can choose your favorite 3 or more items, regardless of where they appear on the board.

This challenge will run from today (Saturday, November 1st) until midnight ET on Thursday, November 13th.

Here are the design team's amazing samples to inspire you, using some of the products from the BRAND NEW Clearly Whimsy Stamps Christmas release:
