St Paddy's Day Blog Hop

Hi All!!! I'm soo excited!! This is my first blog hop, so welcome to my stop on the St. Paddys' Day Blog Hop!!! This hop runs from March 17th at 11:30pm till March 19 at midnight!!!  One Day Only!! This hop is hosted by Denise. If you get lost please head back there to start at the beginning or if you want to check out the entire lineup to make sure you didn't miss any stops!!  You should have just come from Sigrid's beautiful blog and are now more than halfway through all the hop stops.
Anyways, I just want to give a shout out to Denise, THANK YOU!!! I'm so excited to be in my first hop, and you've helped me so much with learning how it works and getting my stuff all together for it!! yay!! Anyway, onto my card. At work we have an Irish lady who is a really good friend of mine,and every St. Paddy's day she takes like the whole week off for partying with family and having a good time with some good ole' green beer!! This year she went away to Newfoundland where they will surely have tons of green beer and cod kissing!! ha ha ha, could be trouble!! I digress...this card is for her, I FINALLY got my Peachy keen stamps, I say that because for some reason I waited for a month (not even kidding) till I received my stamps!! I have scrappers block for that whole time, becuase it seemed like everything I wanted to make was impossible without my peachy keen stamps. So anyways, I finally got to use them and I am soo happy with them...it won't be too long till I'll be waiting another month for my next batch I'm sure!!  Anyways, here is my card:


Here is a close up of the face, I couldn't help myself, plus my rainbow made with the twinery twine!!!  yay!!  I love peachy keen stamps, they are soo cute and really make your project that much cuter!!  love them!!

Recipe: Recollections and Sizzix Cardstock and patterned paper, Eyelet outlet 3 leaf clover brad, micheals misc ribbon, Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge, Sakura White Gel Pen, Yellow and Christmas red stickles, Black pigment ink, clear embossing powder, The Twinery bakers twine in caribbean, lemondrop, maraschino cherry, lilac, mandarin, and peapod, Hapmton art classic mini alphabet set, whisper stroked markers for outlining, pebbles inc hewel tone chalks for blush.

So I was really happy with this card, I just love simply charmed, you're probably tired of seeing it, it's prob pretty dominant becuase it is soo cute!!! Please go and check out the other stops on the hop,.  The next stop is Cheryl!!  Check out her awesome project and beautiful blog!!
