Fancy Dress - CK #53

Hi Friends and Happy Thursday!  It's still Summer here, but for the 1st time since 1997, we have gotten through the month of August without having the temperature reach 100 degrees.  I think I would enjoy that more if I had my own car back to drive with working A/C.  That's right.  The car has been at the dealer this time (#6) for over a week.  I can only hope that they are rebuilding the A/C from scratch. ;)  No worries; I'm still driving their Equinox.  I'm even getting used to driving it.  It's so big!

Now it's time to get on with my card this time for Creative Knockouts.
This time our theme is Tic Tac Toe!  Here's the grid to use across, up/down, or diagonal.
