Happy St. Patty's Day

Life has been crazy busy and full, but oh, so wonderful. Only one exception, I haven't had a lot of studio time. Here's a little glimpse - Both of my daughters have been home on Spring break, but they did not have the same week off. So for the past two weeks, we've been blessed with one of "the girls" being home. My work has been very busy, but I absolutely love my new job (new as of October). I get excited about going to work & I haven't said that in a very long time. Anyway, I doubt you came here to listen to that, so here's a card from me...finally. :)

This was made for the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use it challenge (WT314) where Kim Hughes {don't ya just lover her?!} challenged us to incorporate a smile in a card. I used Lucinda Handwriting font in green to generate the Irish blessing about smiles. The smiling leprechaun from the SU! set "Pinch Proof" seemed to fit perfectly too. I used some of my retired SU! Green Galore and Glorious Green cardstock with the Doodlebug DP called "Grasshopper Plaid". I'm almost out of Green Galore & to be perfectly honest, my heart isn't breaking. It was a challenging color to work with but it seemed just right for today. The ribbon was a little steal from Target's $1 bin where I got a pack of 5 yards of 5 different brightly colored stitched ribbon (1 yard each). The corners were punched with Marvy's scalloped corner punch.

Have a blessed St. Patrick's Day!
