CAS CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE SEPTEMBER REMINDER~ PLAID

Thanks for stopping by and checking out more inspiration for the CAS Christmas Challenge using Plaids.

This is what I used:
Trinity Stamps:  Joyeux Noel (all die cuts)
Plaid is from a Tonic Studio Winter Wonderland Paper Pack
Hero Arts Nov. Monthly Kit: Christmas (sentiment)

And I have a bonus for you because I totally forgot I made my plaid cards months ago and just found them while posting these, so here is one more I originally made for this challenge.


Thanks for stopping by and looking, I hope you are inspired by all the awesome plaids you have seen on the blog and you are ready to get inky and join us in this challenge.  You have until the 24th to post your card!


Heart Hugs, friends!
