SHOPPING OUR STASH #209 - Gingham Style

Hello crafty peeps and welcome! We have a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! It's time to go Gingham Style! (or use checkers/checks or squares!) Here's my card:

 here is the inside:

I found some ancient Christmas paper and made my card using the now ended TMS#307. The image I had colored a few months ago but hadn't gotten around to using it on a card until now. (anybody else do that? No? Hmmm.) Anyhoooo, I didn't want to cover up the image with the banner, so I stamped the sentiment on vellum. Works for me! 

I hope you find some time to break out your stash of gingham/checkers/checks/squares and join the fun at Shopping Our Stash! While there, be sure to check out what the other ladies created, and leave some love on their blogs! Thanks for stopping by!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
