A Very Special Delivery!

Hey there, Happy Tuesday to ya! You know, I have been thinking.... yes, dangerous I know. But I have decided to temporarily put Take-Off Tuesday on hold. There are a lot of things that I have been working on as far as crafting is concerned, and I am finding that TOT gets put to the back burner and then causes me a bit of stress. And you know I started this to release stress, not add it! Now don't worry I will still have a card every tuesday (and everyday for that matter), you will just find that it won't necessarily be a take-off of any kind. But if I feel so inclined to add one on any given tuesday, I will be sure to note it as such.

So without further ado, I bring you today's "non-take-off tuesday" card. It's based off of the challenge over at 365 Cards, which is to use plaid as your inspiration! Here she is:

The plaid lines are hand stamped using Pacific Point, New Leaf and Fresh Snow. I embossed the dashed lines with white powder. Here is a close-up:
These plaid lines were so fun to make. I paper pieced the onesie and used a new EK Success tab punch for the matted layer. I am hoping this card gets to go to our sister-in-law who just announced they are having their first baby in the fall. Of course if its a girl, I am sure I could figure something else out ; ) Congrats to them and Good Luck!!

That's all for today. See you tomorrow at 365 Cards. It's my official day! And don't you worry... the challenge is all that and a bag of chips! Also, prepare yourselves for our entire week of Cutting Cafe images starting Sunday. They are super fun and I think you will love them!
