World Cardmaking Day Hop

wcmdbannerbloghopHi there! Today I’m excited to join Winnie & Walter for a World Cardmaking Day blog hop!
Winnie & Walter-Diagonal Stripe stencilsMany of  you probably already know how I feel about making plaid patterns. I had SO much fun using the Grand & Classic Diagonal Screenings by Winnie & Walter to make my plaid. I added a die cut sentiment using the Hugs Cutaway.
