Hello there!  It's time for the reminder post over on the Christmas Craft Creations blog.  Our theme this time is Tartan/Plaid.

I will also be linking up this project for the Spring into Christmas linky party going on over on the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers blog.  So, be sure and check it out.  There are a lot of amazing prizes from some wonderful crafting companies.

I created my own patterned paper by ink blending in Spun Sugar and then stamping the plaid stamp over it in Festive Berries.  I used the stamp kissing technique to achieve the plaid on the sentiment.  So much fun.  I saw Tim Holtz demonstrate this technique in one of his utube livestreams.  So, I made my own girly plaid :-)  Love this look!
