Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Happy Thursday and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Are you feeling all Irish?! I was while working on this card and playing the Celtic station on Pandora. I'm not sure if I have Irish in my genes, but I think I must because I love the music and I have red hair...right?!


Aren't these colors from the Colour Q challenge absolutely electric?! I started playing with them last night...and got nowhere so went to bed to read, hee! But when I got up this morning to stamp (at 8:22 patting myself on the back!), I wanted to work on a St. Patrick's Day card instead. After about, oh say 2 hours, of getting nowhere (again!), I realized these colors could work for my 'lil Irish card! (BTW, I blame the slack in production on the lack of Starbuckstion!)


Anywhoo (for dh, if he's reading!) back to the card. I probably have some St. Patrick's Day stamps somewhere but what's the likelihood of finding them? So I found this Lucky bingo card you can print here. (Since then, I found this shamrock that Kim Huges is sharing on Paper Crafts Connection, so I may have to do another!) I printed it on some retired SU Old Olive paper, added a doily (I think I'm the last paper crafter in the world to go buy and some doilies at the store, but I did it Monday night!), and some other junk and that was it. Plus five minutes trying to get that bow to not cover up part of LUCKY, grrrr.


I hope you have a safe and wonderful St. Pat's holiday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
