Top O' the Morning!


     Thought I would start out this freezing cold St. Patty's Day with a bit of green.  This is a card I made last year and never got to post.  My SIL is a big Notre Dame fan, and this little fellow reminded me of the Fighting Irish Leprechaun.  He is a digital image that has no details as to who made him.  I used a few Irish themed papers from my stash, cutting the big shamrock out and placing the striped piece behind.  The die is from a stamp and die set by Sizzix,  My sentiment is from SU! and the set is from Greatest Greetings.  A few square gems finished things off.

     I would like to enter this card at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Bit O' Green.
Also at Shopping Our Stash, Luck O' the Irish/Green.  And then there is the Challenge at Paper Players #335 which is Green and White.

     Hope if you are doing the green beer thing or doing a pub crawl you use an Uber and be safe!  Wishing you all a wee bit of magic.  I may be back after work with another post.

So cute, Mary Anne! Love, love, love your leprechaun dude! What a great image! Great mix of patterned papers and perfect "go green" sentiment! No green beer or pub crawling for this old woman! I'll be lucky if I make it to the grocery store tonight! Haha! You & Jim have a great day and go easy on the green beer, ok? Happy St Patrick's Day, my friends!
