St Patrick's Day/Irish/Green
here. As green is one of my favourite colours and I love Celtic designs - I just had to join in.
Claire produced a set of stamps, a while ago, with lots of super Irish sayings, so I decided to use one as the theme for my card. I started with some designer paper (which has been in hiding for ages) and cut that to fit my card and then stamped the fancy shamrock in the bottom corner. I used my Spellbinders die to cut the central layer - some lovely dark olive green paper from my scrap stash. I stamped the cottage directly onto the frame and then again on some white card. I added a touch of colour to the white cottage, cut it out and attached it to the frame. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment, and finished off by added a tiny shamrock flourish. Hopefully, Claire will have received this by now - Happy St Patrick's Day, Claire!!

I always knew that St Patrick's day is a big celebration in the US, but I had no idea just how big!! There are lots of TV adverts with St Patrick's day theme - green Heinz Ketchup!! Detroit had its St Patrick's Day parade last Saturday, and today in Chicago there's a huge parade and they dye the river too!!! But for us, we're spending the day visiting Northville and Kathryn and I finally get to see our new home - so excited!!!
That's all for now - see you soon! I'm off to join the Blog Party :)
