Update Tuesday September 17, 2019 - Wrapped in Plaid Suite

Hello!

Welcome to today's Update Tuesday.  Are you ready?  Ready or not, here it comes!  
Today is a busy day for me, dentist appointment,  AC is on the fritz.  Not a fun day at all.  To top it all off today's high temp is 99° so it will only be 1000° in my house without the AC, LOL!   Especially since we had all the trees in our yard cut down recently because we are planning a garage addition and needed them gone.  So we don't even have any shade to help us.  Please let the AC guy get here soon.

Luckily, to make my day seem cooler,  Stampin' UP! shared These projects from the Wrapped In Plaid Suite!  Here is what Stampin' UP! had to say about this suite and these projects...

'TIS THE SEASON FOR PLAID 
"The perfect way to make your Christmas season merry and bright is by adding a little bit of plaid and a whole lot of cheer! You can do both with the Wrapped in Plaid Suite, and you’ll love the amount of charm it can add to your projects. 
But you get a lot more than plaid in this suite, and all of our samples feature what comes with it. Whether it’s the cute bell embellishments, or the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, or even the pages and pages of our specialty designer series paper (which features more patterns than plaid!), you will love everything that makes this suite ready to help you bring in Christmas. And the Pine Tree Punch is perfect for any season, so it’s a must-have for any collection. "

Doesn't that make you just want to wrap up in cozy plaid pajamas and get started on some holiday projects!  It definitely makes me want to!  I am sad now that I didn't order the jingle bells.  Look at how amazing they are!  I know we see jingle bells every year around the holidays but do you see them on Christmas cards?

So get your Card Stock and Designer Series Paper ready...it's time to make some plaid inspired cards.

My Card...pretty close to the original, but I definitely need some extra Balmy Blue ink sponged for the background.  So be generous with your Balmy Blue!
