Week 161: PLAID

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

 

It's pattern time!  Bring on the plaid this week...or whatever that makes you think of.  Flannel shirts, (not so) stylish pants...what exactly is this cue word going to bring to our gallery?!

  1. Oh ya! I wish I had a kilt to wear while stamping. I'll just have to settle to listening to "Scotland the Brave" and wrapping a tartan blanket around me. ;) No offense to the non-Scottish residents of the U.K. :) Thanks for the great inspiration and challenges CASolgy. As always, you ladies rock!!
