sweet serendipity

I have been cleaning out my craft room in preparation for a yardsale at my LSS where I am selling some stuff. I found some stuff! Tons of fun stuff I forgot I had! One thing in particular was like finding the pot of gold though...a kit my BFF Lesley made for me in a swap at least a year ago! It contained the PERFECT ingredients for a few of the challenges I was attempting to do!!! The main one was for 365 today....their challenge for day 18 was plentiful patterns, and the patterns you could chose from were: plaid, paisley, gingham, houndstooth, toile. Im like...toi-what??? I had no idea what 'toile' meant! So...I googled! And then I remembered the kit! It has toile ribbon! AND plaid paper!!! What are the odds? And since I had a houndstooth cuttlebug embossing folder, well....good to go!!! The thing I need to point out about this card that I absolutely cannot take credit for....the flower. WOW. Lesley made this! I mad an attempt at one of these a while back and failed miserably!!! Thanks Les!!!!!
