SIP Challenge 173 – Plaid!

SIP Challenge 173 – Plaid!

Hello my friends! How was Monday? Mine was not great. I had a small boulder hit my windshield and put a giant circle like crack right in the middle. That’s going to be a pretty penny to replace. I tried to call the company who’s truck it came off of and they didn’t even answer the phone. It’s always something. Tristan was a beast for the first few minutes when I got there but she settled down eventually. Daniel was an angel as always. I got a caught up on a few things while Tristan napped and then did a little laundry when I got home. Taylor stopped by and we ran to Target. Back with the kiddos this morning! 😀

It’s Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I went super simple, just stamping! To create my background I used the Concord & 9th Happy Plaids Photopolymer Stamp Set and some Ballet Slippers and Minty Fresh Ink. I stamped the pattern with a block and added it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The snowflake is stamped in Ballet Slippers and the greeting in Minty Fresh, they are from the Concord & 9th Snow Flurry Photopolymer Stamp Set, using my Mini MISTI so I could stamp the greeting a few times to make it a little darker. I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out and then added it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. That’s it! Simple and very non traditional colors, my fave! LOL! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Plaid Challenge! There is more inspiration over on the BLOG and we hope that you will play along with us! Thanks for visiting with me today! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂
