Lawnscaping Challenge #141

Combine a CAS challenge from Lawn Fawn with Ellen Hutson - I am IN!!!  I mean WHO wouldn't want a little shopping spree for a prize?



I had just received my wonderful little Perfectly Plaid-Winter 6x6 pad ... couldn't wait to create... this one came to me first - can you tell I was listening to Christmas music?:

Winnie and Walter always come to my rescue for the perfect words!
Celebrate is from Neat & Tangled.  Wplus9 provided the banner die.
any Kenny Loggins fans?  a favorite for sure!

But today I went for an even more CAS design because #141 IS a CAS challenge, add this darling little die from Ellen's Essentials latest release, and my favorite little Lawn Fawn dies ...  Stitched Leaves, of course.


Oh.  I DO Believe!  and am thankful to all who visit!

Love, love, love!! Celebrate Me Home is one of my favorite songs. Such a fantastic card! What a lovely die to add to the wonderful plaid. Love your little dots, too! Gosh, just makes me smile. And then I see the second card and whoa Nelly! Another winner. Gosh, I so appreciate your card making style. CAS and oh so effective. Such talent! Thanks for the happy today! Hugs!

Your plaid accented cards are beautiful and definitely on trend! What IS it about plaid that makes me love every card I see with it? Likely because I think it should be a flannel blanket to wrap myself in during these cool Autumn nights & mornings :-) BTW, you've picked a great album to feature on today's post!

Two really beautiful cards, Michele! I love the plaid papers with stitching on your first card, and how you played with the combo of plaid papers for the leaves on the 2nd one...Perfect sentiment on both cards, too! You are an amazing talent, my friend!!!

That plaid is so sweet.....as a leaf or a background! Adorable cards!

Brenda said...

Oh how I am loving that paper you have used Michele! Your first card is amazing although I can't seem to pin point the song you are referring to. And I love Kenny Loggins, go figure. lol Your second card is a fabulous CAS card, loving the leaves and I DO believe too! Hugs, Brenda

A departure from gray that looks stunning, Michele. You have a way with die cuts that always make beautiful CAS cards.

Beautiful use of that patterned paper (which I have and haven't cracked open yet!) Gorgeous cards, Michele!

Both cards are just wonderful! Love the plaid on the first, and all that gorgeous white, subtle leaves, and wonderful word on the second!

Love the plaid! Those leaves in patterned papers are so beautiful!

Well... I didn't know I liked plaid until I saw it used so beautifully.
Guess that's on my wish list now!
Gorgeously CAS designs, Michele. X
