WMS St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm happy to be playing along with a special Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop in honor of today. And have you spotted any little leprechauns? If you look closely, the design team members have hidden a few of the little guys in their blog hop photos. Why? Because it's a contest, of course! Make sure you log on to the forum to enter your guess as to how many leprechauns you've spotted on the hop today. What fun is this?

Now I have to admit, I have never made a single St. Patrick's Day card, so I am excited about what I came up with:






Do you see that sentiment? It's from the L'il Buddies set and it originally said, "Clucky to have you." But, ink it up and wipe off the "C" and you have a perfect sentiment for this special day! I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought of that, but I was pretty darn proud of myself none the less...lol! And I used my Sweethearts set for the shamrock; I just stamped and punched out the hearts and added them together. The stem is from Off Beat Backgrounds. I love the stitched stamp in this set!

Well, I'm off to hop along and see what terrific things you all have made! Have a lucky day! And keep your eyes peeled for little leprechauns!
