I just discovered that today is Kevin Bacon’s birthday! I remember a few years ago when “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” was a fun way of approaching how people are connected to each other. This scenario is especially true in very small Vermont! I am frequently scratching my head on the rare times when I go onto Facebook – I’ll see a post from one friend and see a comment from another that I had NO IDEA that they knew each other. Every time it reminds me of the Kevin Bacon phenomenon, so Happy Birthday to the actor that gave us (unwittingly) this fun way of celebrating our interconnectedness.

I created this card for the current Tic-Tac-Toe challenge following the top-right to bottom-left diagonal for my inspiration. I looked at several options for doing this and opted for the car from Geared Up Garage for “Road Trip”, the Plaid Builder die for “Stripes” and the Braided Linen trim for “Ribbons”. I think this may be my first time participating in one of these challenges and it was a lot of fun! I look forward to joining in again soon.

We are quickly moving through July and I want to remind you of the Bonus Days promotion. For every $50 in merchandise that you purchase you will earn a $5 Bonus Code that you can redeem in August. While placing your order, I would appreciate it if you use order code QPFHQ2MR which will help me purchase supplies for my business. Please DON’T use the order code if your order is > $150 because I want you to receive the Stampin’ Rewards that accumulate at that level. This order code will be closed out on July 15th, so if you use it after that point you will receive an error message (I think).
