Welcome to our First Challenge at Joy of Sets Challenge Blog Tic Tac Toe #JOSTTT001.  

Joy of Sets started out as a Facebook Group back in 2017 when I wanted to use and display some of my old Stampin Up sets that had retired.  I wanted somewhere on Facebook where we could still see and use these old stamps.  From those humble beginnings the group is now over 3,000 members strong and we have branched out away from just Stampin Up to include lots of other stamp companies.  It's a great source of inspiration from our very talented members who are happy to share their creations.

I have started the ball rolling with my choice of Tic Tac Toe for January.  Each month one of our Design Team members will choose their own board.

The Challenge Blog seemed to be the next step to offer ourselves to a wider blog audience.  We have a very talented group of designers for you from all over the world.  Each month we will be bringing you a new Tic Tac Toe challenge.  Known also as Noughts and Crosses in the UK the idea is the same - you choose three boxes either diagonal, vertical or horizontal and create your masterpiece.  Each month each of our Design Team will choose a new challenge for that month.

We welcome all projects - not just cards!

Here's what our very talented Design Team came up with.
