Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Coffee of the Day - Irish Creme, of course! :)

Top o' the Morning to ya, lads and lassies! May ye find yourselves blessed beyond all possible belief on this lovely St. Patrick's Day!!!!

okay, this Texas gal has just exhausted her supply of blarney, so on to the crafties...... :)

I decided it was time to make something fun for the day using Shady Tree's "Eastertide" stamp set once again. I am loving this egg for all sorts of neat, out of the box things! what better way to celebrate St. Patty's than with a shamrock. I found some retired SU! vintage verdigris embossing powder that seemed just the perfect shade on the natural cs. the bits of gold really add a true life sparkle. the stem comes from the flower trio in "Backyard Springtime". I used a versamarker pen to go over just the stem, and then embossed from there. the gold button is from my vintage stash. it seemed perfect for the celtic theme! paper is Basic Grey Origins. some lace trim and a few green holographic sequins finish this off. this is the most CAS card I have done in a while. and yes, for me, this IS CAS. grins!

I think I will save it for Tyler for finals time, which will be coming up in a little over a month. since he loves all things celtic and about Ireland, I think this will be perfect for him!

take care and have a most glorious day!
Jennifer
