Just a quick post here to wish everyone of my blog followers and crafty blogging friends around the world a very Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!
I made this card really quickly yesterday evening while watching Dancing with the Stars!!!! I just wanted to post it here for all of my visitors to let you know I'm so lucky to have "meet" many wonderful crafty bloggers and I have received so may kind and supportive comments and I really appreciate all your kind words of support and encouragement!!!!!
I hope you have a wonderful day and get to celebrate today with a pint or two,he,he,he!!!!
Edit: In my haste to get this posted and out the door this morning, I forgot to mention, that I'm entering this card in challenge # 7 over at the Colour Create Challenge blog! The colour combo is red and green!!!!
I was inspired by this beautiful ribbon (the picture doesn't do it justice really) that I picked up at Micheals. I love the basket weave pattern of the ribbon and the sheen...fabulous! I made my card base 6X6 out of white Dotted Swiss Bazzill cardstock! I cut the shamrock border on my Silhouette and tucked a few extra shamrocks in and around Tilda and pop-dotted her. The papers are a mix of My Mind's Eye, Bohemia Collection and Scenic Route. The sentiment I typed up on my computer and printed it on Bazzill cardstock.
This is my favourite Tilda right now. I think she is called Sweetheart Tilda and she is just that, a sweetheart....I think she looks sooooo Irish too,smile! I stamped her on Georgia Pacific paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my Copics and Twinkling H2Os. I wanted her hair to be dark brown, like mine, something, I don't usually do, as, I am not that good at colouring the hair dark. I think it it is easier just to make her a blond, smile! I used my Maroon Copic marker and I really love the warm reddish brown that it turned out! Tilda's slouchy socks remind of my Irish dancing socks that I use to wear...I think Tilda just kicked off her hard shoes to rest her weary feet after doing a jig or two,lol!!!!
Well, there you have it! I am quite happy with how this card turned out! Hannah and Kieran are on March break this week. I'm taking my Dad to the train so he can head into Toronto to celebrate St.Patrick's day! I am sure that he will be wearing green when I pick him up,lol!!!! I think he might even have his funny hat on, so, I will take a pic and maybe post it for you to all see my crazy Irish Dad,lol!!!!
Well, I better get a move on, got to get my Dad to his train and get to work!!!!!
Hope you all have a very
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
