I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

On to the next holiday celebrations...St. Patrick's Day!  Yeah!  This card was created for Cardz TV Stamps Challenge "Luck of the Irish".  Last week I picked up the Designer's Calendar Cartridge, and I love love love it!  So many fun images and things to do with the creative features!  It was only $16 so I had to get it!  Anyway, the mat is embossed with Swiss Dots, the hat is embossed with Argyle. I used glitter paper for the shamrock, added a cute little button, and inked around the edges and hat with Tim Holtz Tea Dyed Distress Ink.  The ribbon is from Joann's $1 bin, the stamp and patterned paper are both from Studio G.  I know most of my layouts are pretty simple, but I am looking to expand my creativity by following sample sketches from MojoMonday's archive.  If you haven't checked out that blog, I would urge you to do so, it has so many ideas!
