Mad for Plaid

Angel Whispers_2_Jan 2010

Hi! Happy Hump Day! I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Jeanne asked about the plaid background I created for this card, using Martha Stewart’s Clear Pattern Stamps set. To answer the question, there are two stamps in the set – a large plaid and a small plaid (the one I find so difficult to line up). I stamped the large pattern first in Cranberry and then the small pattern, using Blush ink.

Speaking of oh-so-talented and versatile Jeanne, she crafted that precious pink crocheted flower. The felt flowers were cut with Cuttlebug dies. As for that green ribbon, it neither matches nor clashes, so I used it. Coordinate. That’s the word!

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Cranberry cardstock; Cranberry, Blush, and Topiary ink pads; Close To My Heart Angel Whispers and Thank You stamp sets; Martha Stewart Clear Pattern Stamps set; Grosgrain ribbon from Wal-Mart; White and Red felt; Crocheted flower: White Bigger Brad; Distressor Tool, Cuttlebug w/Flowers 2 dies.

I felt absolutely lousy when I woke up this morning and stayed home from work today. I feel much better this evening.

Reiterating my wish that your day has been a good one, I’ll sign off for tonight. Thanks for stopping by!

I am hoarding Jeanne's flowers!!! That background looks awesome as does the green your picture it matches perfectly.
I am so sorry you feel bad today..and am glad you feel slightly better. If you had been in Des Moines today I doubt you would have gone to work anyways...the ice was pretty bad.

Okay now I must HAVE that stamp from Martha! I love it! Thanks for answering my question. And for your sweet words about me. You make me blush. Let me know when you need more flowers, okay?!

I adore this card. Really and for true.

I'm so sorry you weren't feeling well and hope you are back to 100% super fast!
