Paper Playtime Challenge #83 ~ Gingham

Good Monday morning, my friends.  This is the end of a long weekend for us and many others I believe as well.  It is also the official "end of Summer" where I live as the kids go back to school tomorrow.  Back to routine for lots of folk.  Since I have no school age children anymore that is not an issue for me but it still feels like the end of Summer, although the warm weather usually hangs around for a while yet.  I do have just under a month to pack up the rest of the apartment as we move at the start of October.  Where has the time gone????

Today is the start of a new challenge at the Paper Playtime blog ~ for the next two weeks the challenge is to use a die cut and gingham on your projects.  We are being sponsored by Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps and one lucky entry will win the North American Wood Stamp Set.  This is my card:

and the inside:


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Martha Stewart
Cricut ~ Wild Card (card)

Images and Sentiment ~ Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps Relax A Bit
Copic markers
Punch ~ Stampin' Up word window
Colorbox Chalk ~ Lavender

Thanks for coming by to see me today.  Please join us and share your gingham/die cut creations with us over at Paper Playtime
