always good to have a good luck charm...

good morning all!
i am happy to report that we are currently getitng RAAIN and not snow here in northern VA!!!

Suzanne issued us a topsy turvy challenge this week - take a stamp and use it for a holiday OTHER thn what it is intended. FUN! it is ALWAYS good to look for additional uses for all your stamps.

i decided i really love Irish Eyes even though i would not normally send out st patty's day cards. Then i realized there are LOTS of times when i WOULD want to wish someone luck! and a person's first home is one of them:
i went with a green and brown theme and instead of the usual type of sentiment i printed off my favorite Irish blessing. the clover is cut with my cricut and run through my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. i added one of the super cute glittered buttons (found HERE) tied with scrappers floss to the clover and then a scrap of ribbon tied with floss to balance it out along with a few chocolate glittered skittles.

i colored my image with copics and used a green spica glitter pen on her clovers.
i think she is just darling!!
have a fantastic day!!!
better blog siggy
