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...


  1. Nice St. Patricks Day piece. By the way, I would eat mashed potatoes in any color...even green!

  2. Green? Oh my, I needed to check my calendar. How did it get to the middle of March already? Looks good, Sherry. Top of the morning to you!

  3. Nice little pieces of art. Love the images!

  4. Happy St. Paddy's Day to you and yours. Happy weekend, too.

  5. Lots of us have Irish blood eh?! Cute card Sherry.
    So glad you have gained new followers.Well done!

  6. Oh goodness, thank you for the shout out!! I had half as many attendees as last years Ball, but goodness what quality I had. I am so glad you got new followers and comments, I tell you I have the most gracious, nicest readers! Now, I am not a corned beef and cabbage girl either and I have never liked beer! I am waiting for the 4th of July...Hot dogs, hamburgers and corn on the cob!!!


  7. have a great paddy`s day tomorrow, shame we are not so patriotic about St George

  8. Pretty little atc's. I have crocheted a few shamrocks but that's about it. Today I did make an Asian cabbage salad. And I cooked some up to have with cornbread and black eyed peas later. Simple and delicious! Have a great weekend. Tammy

  11. Hope you had a great day. Your creations are so beautiful, and cheery.

  12. What a cute post Sherry - I love your cards!
    Have fun with your company, and your F1 races... Marc is a big fan as well and I wander in and out of it at will. I suppose you could say I'm a fickle, fair-weather fan (how's that for alliteration?)

  13. Dear Sherry,
    your ATC´S are wonderful, and I loved reading about the green bear and beef and cabbage :-) even more about the earlier years of yours when all was green coloured, what fun!
    I Hope you enjoyed the Racing start of the season, I`m not a sports woman, which also shows in not running, or doing much of any kind of sport!!!

  14. Love your atc's super cute. glad to see you are playing in your craft room. I am on a stand still again. Just can't find at times the energy to play in here after all the work around the house.
    Happy crafting to you and please do send me some energy for playing in my room.

  15. Hi Sherry! Top o' the mornin' to you! Hope your St. Patrick's Day was wonderful. Stay calm. Stay peaceful. Love ya, kath

  16. Darling Atc's Sherry. Hope your St. Patties day was full of fun. No corned beef or cabbage or green beer for me though. LOL
    Hugs Lynn
