Getting Ready For St. Patty's Day

I finally got my Irish set in the mail this week and had to play, just in time...we only have one more week to get into the Irish mood. Don't forget to wear your green!!

This first card I call "Dance A Jig". This little Leprechaun just looks like that is what he is doing. I clear embossed the little guy and used a button/charm that I had on hand for the "Happy St. Patrick's Day" sentiment. I used Wild Wasabi & River Rock cardstocks on this one.

This next card got me getting just a little more creative. I haven't felt too creative lately, so it started coming back...slowly :)

I love this ribbon! Matches the 'In-Color' paper perfectly, also just in time for St. Patty's Day! I also used my Ziggy to add a touch of shiny gold to his hat/shoes. This one I used Wild Wasabi (again) Always Artichoke, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery cardstocks.



And this last card is my favorite. I call it "Viva Las Leprechaun" Corny (as my 12 year old would say) I know. But, I wanted a reason to use my chunky glitter! I think he looks stylish! And I also used the Build-A-Brad for the first time on the tiny shamrock. Oh yeah....and the flowers are Rub-Ons! They go on so easily!!! I used Wild Wasabi, Confetti White and Brushed Gold cardstocks on this card.


Even if you aren't Irish, don't forget to wear your green next Monday, or you'll get pinched!
