Thinkin' and Feelin' Green! St. Patrick's Day is the Next Holiday!

Today was a Holiday so I didn't have to go to work today! We had some errands to run but I actually had time to work on sketches early this week! I was in the St. Patrick's day mood as I had just gotten out all of my St. Patrick's day paper. I usually make some cards for the food drive for every holiday so this is a fun one! It is fun to make things green! So here are some green cards! The first one is Kazan's Sketch 20 for the week of 2-16-09. I turned it upside down. The shamrock is made of the irish blessing printed on cardstock. I made the pattern after seeing a card a few years ago on scrapbook.com. The shamrock brads are from Oriental Trading. The little love charm is from Michael's (found it in the wedding section). The green patterned paper is imaginisce (I've had it for a couple years!). The little tag thing with lucky me on it is a quickutz die and Lucky Me is one of those cool $1 stamps!
The 2nd card is for Julie Campbell's bonus sketch. The patterned paper is from my stash. The stamps are also $1 stamps! The poem I found somewhere on the internet and typed in. The circle is a quickutz cookie cutter and the leprechaun is an original 2 X 2 quickutz ~ I'd cut out a bunch one year when I was making cards and they never fit quite right on what I was making so now I have a bunch ready to go!



I found another cool sketch web-site this morning called Card Patterns - see the blogs that I follow for a link! Kristin Swain who was on 2 Sketches 4 You design team before is now on their design team! This is only the 2nd week of their sketches so it is very cool to get in on it early! I used the same poem and some more paper and stamps from my stash!


The last 2 pictures are of some shakers that I did using the same poem and the cute leprechauns! Just having a good time with green today! And shakers are so fun!
I've still got more green paper in my stash and still a month to St. Patrick's day so you can bet there will be more green cards coming!

I love all of your projects and what a creative way to use the Card Patterns sketch!!! You're definitely getting me in the mood to make some green cards!!! :) Thanks for playing with us!

Wow! You had a fun day! These are all really cute. Here in the South, St Patrick's Day is usually close to Mardi Gras and gets missed so it's fun to look at some Green!

Your photo background is very versatile and pretty.

Thanks for your comment on my card. Love your leprechauns, I've got to do my St Patrick's Day cards, especially as my Mum and her family are all Irish. I don't really think I have an excuse!
