Mad About Plaid! FMS226, #GDP025






When I saw Rita's great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches I knew right away I wanted to make a plaid panel. And how did I know that?  Because I just received the wonderful All Striped Up set from Simon Says Stamp.  An amazing amount of stamping goes into making a plaid but it was a lot of fun!  After all that hard work I definitely wanted the plaid panel to take center stage.  I kept the colors.....and accessories simple.....unlike someone else I know who never makes an appearance without being fully accessorized!






Hope you play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!




The colors at Global Design Project this week were perfect for creating a plaid!

Linda you did a fabulous job on your plaid. I don't have the patience for that even though I love it.... and how about that little cutie patootie! She is so darling.

Linda, Plaids/Tartans are top of my personal hit parade at the moment and I simply adore your card! Time consuming? Yes, but well worth the effort! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project this week.

Creating your own plaid may be a lot of work but the end result is FANTASTIC! And I extra love it because this is one of my favorite color combos!

The is such a gorgeous card Linda and I can't believe that you made that background! That's truly amazing! I don't think I would have the patience to do that!!! Love the sunshine and that sun sentiment! Emma's so cute in her glasses! Love that spring is almost here!

Cindy Hall said...

Wow! I can hardly believe you made that plaid! That is AWESOME. I don't know if I'd have been able to put anything on it that would cover it up! And I DO love your sun. :)
