A Plaid Hello


Hi there.  I am in love with the color combo at the MUSE Challenge this week so I decided I needed to play along again!  I am also inspired by Laura's fabulous plaid cards so I gave plaid a go myself last night.  I used the PTI Super Stripes set paired with the diamonds from the The Craft's Meow Retro Christmas set. They work fabulously together to create this card.

Before I go, I have to brag about Jonathon.  Wednesday was his last day of school and awards day for the sixth grade class.  We received a letter a few weeks ago that Jonathon won the My Voice, My Choice award for his class.  When he received his earlier award for high honors, he looked over surprised to see us there.  At the end of the assembly the principal announced if the children were wondering why it their parents were there it was because they had won the award.  The award is given to students demonstrating respect, responsibility and caring towards their classmates.  Each homeroom teacher choose a boy and girl from their class.  A very big honor...his smile says it all and we were certainly smiling from ear to ear!
