Happy Friday, peeps! I rarely make St Patrick's Day cards, but when I saw the SU Only Challenge this week, which is "Celebrating Green", as well as the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch with the option of plaid, I just had to pull out this golden oldie stamp set, Gift Givers! So here's the sketch:
And here's my card!
I had already chosen the green plaid paper from the Warmth & Cheer pad before I even saw the plaid challenge! I stamped my little leprechaun on some watercolor paper and colored him in with an aquapainter and inks:
And how cool is it that our stitched ovals fit the sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes?! I stamped, punched and diecut this sentiment for the inside:
I also added some embossing with the Cable Knit EF, some Gumball Green stitched ribbon, and a couple of mats in Garden Green and Basic Black! I had fun making this one! Thanks for stopping by!
My nephew Tim stopped by earlier in the week to give us an estimate on some work he may be doing for us; while he was taking measurements, Cassidy decided to draw his picture on the driveway:
We liked how his hair and his beard sort of encircled his head! But the funniest part was when Uncle Timmy actually got down on the ground to compare his likeness! Not bad! I think his legs might be a little too scrawny, though!
Enjoy the blessings of the day!
