Hello everyone! It's Monday...again! The beginning of a new week and I have a card I made for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I wanted to do a St. Patty's Day card for my MIL. She always has all of us over to her house for Reuben sandwiches on St. Patty's Day! Yum!!! The sketch was perfect for this very simple card. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps new release called Lucky Me. I altered the sentiment a bit...the stamp says " Lucky me to have a friend like you!" I took out the words "a friend like" because I'm giving it to my MIL. Very easy to do with a marker and a stamp-a-ma-jig. The shamrock image is from a Studio G $1 set. The dp is from Basic Grey's Origins that my friend Cheryl gave me. I purchased the ribbon in the $1 bin at Michael's on a shopping trip with Cheryl too! I just picked up the flowers today at JoAnn's, and they reminded me of carnations, which my MIL loves! So they found a place on this card for her! I felt they needed some leaves, so I punched some with a MS punch out of celery and garden green card stock.
On a side note: my dh and I went to the Irish Center in South Buffalo (a huge Irish community) to have some Guinness and Harp beer, listen to some Irish music, and watch the girls do some Irish dancing. These girls (and two boys) are always so amazing to watch. This group has travelled many times to Ireland for competitions and have won!
Well, that's it for me today. I hope you are celebrating St. Patty's Day this week! Thanks for stopping in...have a great week!
