Springpunk in Plaid!

Linda is taking us all the way back to Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2009, Day 3 and we are making plaid backgrounds!  This was super easy and fun!  The kind people of Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring GM39 and offering a $25.00 shopping spree and as luck would have it, the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is "Anything Goes."  Artistic Outpost also has a fun and unusual challenge for  "Springpunk."  Now that is a first!


All stamps are from Artistic Outpost and I used Bird's of  A Feather and Whimsical Melange for the clock face which was stamped and clear embossed.  The gear is Tim's as are most of the embellishments.  The feathers were gifted to me by my bird, Fred!  The bird background panel and clock gear were embossed with one of Tim's embossing folders and then embossed with a garnet powder.

I was the lucky recipient of a surprise blog candy anniversary over at Yvonne's Journey into Artistry and as if the candy was not sweet enough, look at this beautiful card she sent along.  If you have not been to Yvonne's blog, take the time to stop by for a visit.  Thank you so much, Yvonne! 
Well I would like to thank and welcome my 35 new followers and if you have not signed up for my blog candy, now would be the time.  Your visits are always appreciated and I thank you!
