The Luck Of The Irish

Is it Saturday already?
This is the day of the week that always sneaks up on me... perhaps because it's more relaxed, whatever the reason the day is always filled with appointment's, meet and greet ups with crafting and play(this is a fun way to think about house cleaning!).
Today we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, throughout the years, it has been about wearing green, displaying the Shamrock's and having corned beef and cabbage for dinner.
Although, I am not planning on corned beef and cabbage for dinner, I am wearing green and I did received a wonderful strand of shamrock beads at this morning's ATC group swap!

Today's theme for the group was Irish and the ATC's are wonderful!

I thought it would be a challenge to create ATC's for this swap, trying as I am to use up the stash I have collected over the past several years!
I managed to unearth a wonderful Irish collage sheet that I purchased from Mystic Paper. (Located in downtown Mesa, Arizona. It is a wonderful store, if you get a chance to visit, please do!) I also used a digital sheet, downloaded from the internet which was printed at the local copy center. I added a little stamping and some gold and green ink with a few embellishments!

These are the finished cards, if you would enjoy receiving a card please leave a comment, I would love to share the extra card I created with you! I will pick a winner on Tuesday and will announce the winner's name on Wednesday!

I have enjoyed reading so many Pink Saturday Posts filled with stories of spring , pink and St. Patrick's Day at Beverly's How Sweet The Sound, however there are so many more wonderful friends to visit,so please join me!
