We're MAD for PLAID!

Top 'o the morning to ya!
and Happy March!

It's time for another challenge at The Ink Spot
and this week's challenge theme was chosen by me.
I love the look of plaid but it doesn't get on my cards very often,
nor do I get to wear a kilt - tee hee!
 I thought that would be a fun theme,
especially since St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner.

And, I have Irish/Scottish roots!
I do, I do!
My dad and uncle worked for an entire year on our genealogy
and traced our family's ancestry all the way back to Scotland ♥
In fact, we are direct decendants of Sir William Wallace,
the Scottish knight that fought during the Wars of Scottish Independence until his defeat at the defeat at the Battle of Falkirk in July 1298.
Of course, it doesn't hurt to throw in there ..
"you know, Mel Gibson?  From Braveheart!"

I know ........ just the actor's portrayal of Sir Wallace - hee hee!
Just bein' silly, of course!

Speaking of silly, I LOVE this silly little leprechaun!
I call him Jiggles since he's jumping up and doing a little jig :)
He's available at Cornish Heritage Farms
in the digital stamp section and did you know the downloads are instant.
No waiting, instant printing, coloring, paper crafting!
The Happy St. Patrick's Day sentiment is also from CHF.

My card is might look slightly familiar,
because I modeled after one of my other cards that I loved ♥
Please be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the DT created using
You can find their inspirations on their blogs listed at the right
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, Bigger blessings!
