Happy St Patrick's Day!!

☘☘Happy St Patty's Day crafty friends!! ☘☘ 

Whether you're Irish or not (I'm not), you probably celebrate this holiday somehow. When I worked in downtown St Paul MN (home to many of Irish descent) we would watch the parade out the office windows - so fun! Now I just watch bits on television - still entertaining.

My connection to Ireland is my friend Heather (stamping and stitching) and her beautiful family. I sent them this card to celebrate the day and they loved it!!

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio; Ms Sparkle woodgrain;
Dies - Impression Obsession Fancy Shamrock;
Frantic Stamper Slimline Frames
Stamps - Hero Arts Holiday Planner Icons (retired)
Pink and Main Happy (retired)
Other - clear embossing powder, Copic Markers

I diecut the fancy shamrock twice and inlaid the plain green pieces into the glittered one. Die cut the mat from designer paper, the sentiment strip from woodgrain, and the little white border. Stamped and embossed the sentiment. Stamped & fussy cut the little hat from the holiday icon set - easy peasy!

We got our second covid vaccine shot last week so will be considered "fully vaccinated" soon. Can't wait to hug my family and friends when they fall into that category too!!

Thanks for stopping & luck o' the Irish to you!!

That PP background is wonderful, love all the shades of green and the sparkle on your shamrock too. I am enjoying all the green cards at the moment and realise why it is my favourite colour xx

Happy St Patrick's Day! Thanks so much again Linda for this fabulous card - we love it! Your sparky shamrock is so pretty and it goes great with the beautiful shamrock filled background. The hat on the sentiment is such a fun touch!

Delighted that you've got your second vaccine now. It will be great to be able to hug family and friends again in the future :)
