Pot of Gold

We'll be leaving for Toronto as soon as I get off work this afternoon. Our family of five has been very generously gifted a 10-day holiday to the Dominican Republic - flights and accommodation! We feel so incredibly blessed for this opportunity to spend time together and my husband has been cleared by his medical team to fly. Our flight leaves tomorrow morning so we decided to stay near the airport tonight. I'm looking forward to sun, sand and ocean waves!

Donna is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's got quite a challenge for us - use plaid AND polka-dots on our projects. I recently ordered some paper packs from Worldwide Scrapbooking Supplies and the Pot O' Gold paper came in very handy. In fact, I let the paper do the majority of the work for this card!!


The sweet image is actually part of the paper pack. The dies and stamp that I used are all retired products from My Craft Spot.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see how the rest of the Girlfriends have met the challenge - and then link up your own plaid and polka-dot creation.

I've been slow with my blog visits lately, but your trip sounds out of this world! I know you had a fabulous time and I enjoyed seeing your photos (I think it was on Instagram?).
