Word Art Wednesday & More Plaid

Hey there, friends!  Welcome by again today as I share two cards.  I'm a day early with my first card which is for the brand new challenge at Word Art Wednesday (new challenge starts Wednesday, February 1 at midnight).  We have THREE (3) amazing sponsors for this challenge.  We have Winnie & Walter offering a $25 Gift Card for their adorable stamps, Crafty Individuals offering a £15 gift certificate (UK) prize to their awesome craft supply store, and The Cutting Cafe offering our digital prize for this challenge.  I made a fairly simple card using patterned papers, flowers, ivory burlap string, and washi tape.  
My second card is another red and black plaid card I created for a fun challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations where I wanted to play along again this week.  I had fun using these Christmas papers and accessories while trying to keep my card, again, from getting too "Christmassy".  I tried my best!
Remember that the current Word Art Wednesday Challenge, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, is open until midnight tonight, and then the new challenge begins.  There's ALWAYS fun, inspiration and lots of great prizes at Word Art Wednesday, and we love having you play along with us.  Here's a list of the challenges where I'm playing along today:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #392 - Photo Inspiration - Black/Red Plaid

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Anything Goes" - This is my 5th and final entry into this fun challenge for the week.


Blessings to all,
Karen
