Wearin O'the Green...
'Tis the time of year when we celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Lots of wearing green in honor of the Irish. Some ATC's that I made and mailed out. Of course lots of people drink green beer and eat corned beef and cabbage. I will be opting out of that tradition. In the past I have even served and eaten green colored mashed potatoes. That was fun but might have been a little overboard. Everything we ate and drank was colored green!
The background paper is a very shiny green foil and therefore does not photo well. I loved the foil paper and the green is bright and emerald and very happy. The little images I fussy cut from one of the Dover "Royalty-Free" design books. I bought mine from Barnes and Noble but I have heard that sometimes you can find them at sales.
I adore her skirt edged in clovers and that is why I added the clover charm. Even my lace had green running through it. So..."Top O'the Mornin to You" as my Grandma would say on St. Patrick's day. It took me years to learn to reply with, "And the rest of the day to you."
Welcome to my newest followers. I also must say THANK YOU to Carol of The Polka Dot Closet for her Dress Form Ball. I visited every single attendee and had such a fun time. Being part of her "Linky Party" also resulted in me getting the most comments I have ever gotten for a single post. I love reading comments.
Now I shall spend my day cleaning house and doing laundry as we are having a surprise guest for four days.
This is also the beginning of Formula One Racing season and that is my favorite sport. Thank goodness for DVR and being able to view it when time allows.
May you enjoy your days and nights and let your creative muse have fun and play. I am staying calm and trying to enjoy the magic of each moment. Blessings...
