Awww......aren't they sweet??!!! And yes I am Irish!!!!!! I have the red hair to prove it!!!!!!!! Okay, okay, well, I MARRIED a true blue Irishman and my hair was close to red and I just gave it a nudge!!!! LOL Anyway........there are some fun Irish Toasts and Poems and Blessings.....have fun with them today!!!
This card is for the Clear Artistic Cottage Rumble ~ Shamrocks. Go check out all the DT submissions for this fun challenge on the In The Cottage Studio blog!!! Stay tuned for some more info soon to come about Cottage Rumbles and how you'll be able to play along!!! I'm a tease!!! LOL Our challenge was to use green, gold and one other color. I chose pink..........of COURSE!!!! My gold is the embossed shamrocks I made with the Sweetpea Sweetheart heart image and the pearls and ribbon!!! I used some of the new FABULOUS Shimmer Paper!!! It's hard to capture on my camera..........but this is soooo beautifully shimmery!! The one I chose is called Seagrass, which goes with the pink dp so perfectly!!! Well, if you're like me and love a pink and green color combo anyway!!!! LOLNow, you all remember that Clean and Simple card I was challenged by Suzanne to make??? Well, turns out even THAT wasn't stricly a Clean and Simple card according to strict definitions!!! Are you serious??? Do you KNOW how nekkid that card was???? Well, okeedokee..........I have issues and just cannot resist a challenge until I get it "right"!!!! LOL So back to the drawing board.........errrr........stamp table!!! I used the same GORgeous tree image since it is MY tree after all from the Whispers In The Woods set..........but I had to change up colors, so I decided a pretty, pastel Spring-y card would be fun!! Do you see??? NO cuttlebugged or scored up bg.......just THREE lines and the ribbon to "frame" the tree!! Did I do it???? Does this pass???? I'm SERIOUSLY afraid for my sanity if I have to attempt this one more time!!!! LOL
A heads-up.................be sure to check Belinda's Clear Artistic Stamps site as she's retiring a few stamp sets at a seriously awesome price!!! Check out the Clearance Page. The Sweetpea Sweetheart set I used above is one being retired...I absolutely LOVE this set, better hurry if you hope to add it to your collection!!! LOL Also her brand new sets in the Capacious Collection are sooo wonderfully artistic and sweet!!!
