BBTB2 - St. Patrick's Day

The start of a new week is upon us, and with it a new challenge over at 

Bitten by the Bug 2

And it's all about St. Patrick's Day!!!

What a fun holiday! Do you always play along with the "pinching"? It was fun in elementary school, right?  Well, even if I don't go out looking for people who aren't wearing green,
I do like to decorate my house for it.

So I created an EASY PEASY home decor piece!
I just buy 4x4 ceramic tiles from Home Depot cut a piece of decorative pattern paper, Mod Podge that right on the tile and then figure out what cut I will add to it.  In this instance, I just cut the phrase "St. Patrick's Day" from Designer's Calendar out of some fun green glitter paper and used Mod Podge to glue that on too.
SO SIMPLE, yet so festive.

Here is a close up of the glitter paper - still kind of hard to see :)

And here is my little table that I decorated with some other crafts and cards

I hope that you will join us this week over at BBTB2 for our fun challenge of St. Patty's Day!
