Happy St. Patrick's Day! Everyone's a little Irish today so I thought I'd share the two cards I made. The first one was for my co-worker. She actually IS Irish and she loves this holiday so, like last year, I decided to make her a card. I am so excited that I finally got to color up an image from Stamps by Aurora Wings! If you haven't heard about Mitzi Sato-Wiuff then you may have been living under a rock! lol These gorgeous images are taking the craft world by storm and I am swept up in the tempest! Her etsy shop is filled with flowers and magic! She also has a website, a blog, a brand new challenge blog, and a Facebook group! This is Clover Pixie and she is colored with Copics. I must say I am really pleased with how she came out! I cut the image out using the Small Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities from Spellbinders. The circle behind her is also from Spellbinders, a set called Celtic Motifs (a $10 score from AC Moore). The paper is Shamrocks from Karen Foster Design. I added a bit of bling, some flowers, and a Martha Stewart punched four leaf clover. The sentiment is from one of those little Studio G sets and I used a Stampin' Up punch for it.
Notice my fabulous new watermark? My friend Michelle of Evermore Card Creations is a-freakin-mazing! Not only did she give my blog a much needed makeover, but she created the perfect watermark for the photos of my creations! She's a digital goddess but she also knows her way around Copics and paper!

Okay, now that the shameless plug for my friend is over, let me tell you about the second card I made. This one was for Kayne. St.Patrick's Day just happens to be his "half" birthday, which I think is pretty cool, so I always acknowledge it with a little something- a card, baked goods. And I am so enthralled with Stamps by Aurora Wings that I colored a second image!
This is Leprechaun. Isn't he cute? I thought he was perfect for my small man! So I colored him up with Copics and cut him out using the Classic Circles Nestabilities from Spellbinders. Papers are Karen Foster Design - Shamrocks and Little Yellow Bicylce - Lucky Me Flourish. Since this one is for a preschooler, I kept it simple. I stamped another Studio G sentiment directly onto my image panel and added one plastic "gold" coin.
Oh my gosh, those were so much fun that I just want to sit back down at my craft desk again and color! And I'm sure I will soon. Just not tonight.
Thanks for stopping by! May your luck be plenty and your troubles be few! I'll leave you with a photo of my little leprechaun!
