X's & O's

so many challenges.... so little time... so I had to combine a few, but just a few... not an insane amount like some people are capable of doing.... also these are NOT standard OWH size which doesn't mean I can't sent them to OWH, just that I have to make sure I get an envelope with them (already tucked! no worries)
