CRAZY FOR PLAID
{If the Shoe Fits: DT Project - 19 February}
The challenge put to the If The Shoe Fits Design Team this week was to use plaid on our projects. The strip of red plaid cardstock I used here, was a piece of scrap from my left over cardstock file and if I can recall this plaid cardstock was one of the very first patterned cardstock designs which was available to us here in South Africa and I purchased it from a Magic Memories consultant way back in 1999. Magic Memories does not trade anymore in South Africa.
The "To love is to give love" circle was stamped with an acrylic stamp set and the image is a digital image from In Style Digi Stamps which I printed on white cardstock with my Canon inkjet printer and coloured with H2O's.

Hubby is at the Business School for Post Graduates in Cape Town this week where he will be coaching in front of a panel of local and international judges and I am holding thumbs that he will pass with flying colours and that the last year of full time studying will pay off in the end.
Thanks again for all your valued visits here and encouraging comments.

  2. Hello Desire

    This is so very pretty and love those paisley images - I read somewhere that paisley is going to be very in this year, so you are ahead of the trend.
