Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all enjoy your family and friends and a fabulous feast!

Today's card has nothing to do with the Holiday, well not this one anyways.  I have moved on to Valentine's Day and am happy to do so!

This card will be entered into the Mod Squad Challenge, Timed Challenge, One Layer Card and the Papertrey Ink Challenge, Stamping A Plaid Background.

Now you know I LOVE my layers, but I must say I really LOVE this Love Card!  The plaid background was fun to create.  Once again I did not have the correct types of stamps so I used another road stamp from PTI's City Scene set.  Worked like a charm!  I used Memento Inks in; Angel Pink, Lilac Posies and Pear Tart and a Colorbox Ink in Moss Green.  The word Love is a One Liner also from PTI (thanks again Barbara!) and I colored it a deeper pink to match the card.  I added a bit of thin pink Washi Tape to make a border for the plaid background, and then just 'randomly' tossed a few pink sequins all around.
My time was 12:14.....but worth it!!!  Heck I have spent 2 days on a card before!  True Story!  ;)
It's nice and bright and happy!  Love it!
Thanks for coming by!


  1. LOVE this love card. Haven't watched the PTI video yet - wonder if I have a stamp that I can use. You are the Mother of Invention my dear. Really cute card!!!

  2. Great colors on the plaid and great design. This looked so hard when I saw the video. I would have gone crazy trying to do this. You are amazing. When I want plaid, I guess I will just buy some plaid paper.

  3. Doing a plaid is not easy. I have tried and just got a mess. So you go and do one that is amazing, and you time it too! Girl I am impressed and so glad I could help out. Great combination of challenges. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

  4. Your card is as sweet as can be! Your plaid came out beautifully and I love that you did it with a road stamp. How clever of you! Awesome job!

  5. A beautiful card design. Adding the washi tape really gives the look of layers too!

  6. Very sweet my dear....just like you ;) You are amazing the way you can do the plaid.
