One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday ~ Plaids

It is my turn this week and I chose to have "PLAIDS" on our Christmas cards at 

I used my PTI Holiday Plaid  Paper Pad!  I love all the paper in this pad! 
I kept it pretty simple with a stamp from Verve...but I cut a snowflake and a circle in place of the "O" for the JOY.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will visit the other team members and make a card, it really is so nice to just pull them out and address the envelope at Christmas time!
So join in the fun and make a card with some plaid on it, don't you love the photo inspiration too?
stamps & dies:  Verve: Joy, Li'l Inkers stitched rectangl
paper: PTI Holiday Plaid Paper Pad


  1. I love this card Colleen! CAS and perfect! And I love that plaid paper from PTI too...I keep thinking I should order another pkg to make sure I always have some on hand! Love the "O" in your Joy too...cute, cute card!! :0)

  2. I love this soft green plaid, the way you've used the JOY and the pop of the red and white twine! Great challenge, Colleen! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. LOVE this paper too! Awesome card!

  4. Love your card, I'm a lover of plaids especially at Christmas. I'm so excited to remember to play with the blog challenges so I can get a jump start on my cards. in fact I just had a brain wave, make two one for me and one to sell at a rally in the fall.

  5. Fun challenge this week, Colleen - I love plaid too! Just love your soft plaid and your snowflake O!!

  6. So many things to love about this card. The soft colors of the plaid and love the "O" embellishment in the J-O-Y!
