Default Scotland - Plaid - by mit240z - Saturday, Dec. 12 - 2 pm EST - DEC15VSNH

Challenge Title: Scottish Plaid
Hostess: Michelle (Mit240z)
Keyword: DEC15VSNH
Date: Saturday, Dec. 12


Halo! Ceud Mile Failte!

Hello and Welcome! I have always had a bit of a fascination with Scotland, from my love of plaid to my obsession with Scottish historical romance novels (that will be our little secret ). I was overjoyed when I learned that both of my grandfathers parents were from Scotland and I myself have some Scottish blood in me! That explains so much about my temperament

My challenge to you is to use plaid on your card.

I can't wait to see a beautiful gallery full of plaid!


View the gallery for this challenge: HERE
View the Around The World In 80 Days gallery: HERE
View the Around The World In 80 Days Challenge Thread: HERE


1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Saturday, Dec. 19.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the 80 Days VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Around The World In 80 Days - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

I just watched a couple videos where the women drew a plaid pattern on their cards. We'll see how my attempts turn out!

My childhood friend's grandmother was Scottish and lived with them. She collected anything with a Scottie dog on it (that may not be the correct breed name but that is what she called them). She was the cutest and sweetest thing!

We went to Scotland on our British Isles cruise this year. We loved Scotland! Love plaid too!

Going to think while I turn out some Christmas breads out to cool.

That sounds fun to try, I'll have to look that up. I can't wait to see your attempt!

I don't know the correct name either but I know exactly which dog your talking about.

Best as I can figure out, my paternal grandfather's ancestors came from Scotland but it was so far back that it's really hard to say for sure. Still, I loved making this Scottish-heritage card with a muted plaid background: DEC15VSNH Scottish Plaid by melissa59 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I've always known them as Scotties.
Do you have the Black & White whiskey ads over there - with the Scottie and the Westie?

I do like to use pretty reds and greens in plaid for Christmas, but when I came across this piece of light blue it spoke "baby boy" card to me. Since Tiny Tot will be having a baby brother I was inspired to make this card.
