Are you mad about plaid? If so, today’s plaid friendship card will make your heart go pitter-pat! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!
This week Joanne has a fun quartet of colors for our monthly color challenge: Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pool Party, Night of Navy. Once again I pulled out my favorite “go-to” set and dies: the Forever Fern bundle. This bundle is the bomb! Just look at these leaves stamped in non-traditional colors! I can’t wait to see what YOU create using Joanne’s glorious colors!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
Who would have thought a holiday paper collection would contain such a versatile paper such as this one? I was lucky to find this plaid beauty which features Melon Mambo and Mango Melody. After deciding on this paper, the rest was easy! I simply stamped leaves in the challenge colors.
There is so much texture and depth, thanks to a triple bow, a textured embossing folder, and dimensionals. Of course, a few well-placed rhinestones are added for just the right touch of sparkle and bling.

A Very Special Birthday
Today marks a very special day in the Schach household. The Twins turn ten! It seems like just yesterday, Muffy arrived at our house. It was love at first sight…and she has never left my side. She is truly my heart dog. She was my first show dog, first champion, first grand champion, first group winner, and first Best in Show. The first of so many things. For whatever reason, on the same day she entered into my heart, I found out from her breeder that there was one puppy left. Surely God was guiding me, as I said I would take him. I’ll never forget the words my husband uttered when I told him at supper that night that I had bought her brother. “WHAT were you thinking?” he said. And this become Brody’s registered name. I have never regretted that day. I am so happy they have been able to share ten years together.
We’ve experienced so much together, the Twins and I: Brady heading off to college and off to Seattle, my retirement, Kim’s retirement, and the addition of new members to the pack. And in each and every situation, they have faithfully stood by my side, raising my spirits when I have felt low as well as celebrating the highs with me. Happy birthday to two dogs who have forever changed my life…
