Always Irish

     When you have a St. Patrick's birthday, you're always Irish !  In my case, my heritage is Irish on both sides of my family tree so I'm the most Irish member of my American family.  :-D   I celebrate my birthday by making St. Pat's cards for all my grandkids.


I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Weds.2
turned on its side.


     I colored the image (Bugaboo Stamps) with my ProMarkers, then fussy cut her.  I used dies from Spellbinders to cut the frame and mounted it, with the image, onto a pre-made card base.  I added ribbon from my stash and a lace bow and called it finished, a nice CAS design.

     Challenges:

     Well, I have a full day ahead of me, including a second poast later this morning, so for now I'm going to thank you for stopping by and then wish you Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Always Irish and always that fabulous green! Love your card Connie. The image is adorable and so is the way she's framed out.

Gorgeous die cut background for Ava. Wonderful greens on your St. Patricks day card. My kids too are part Irish - so I've begun making cards for the occasion as well.
