Lucky


"Luck", in general terms, tends to be as good as it is bad. I'm fortunate that I have experienced both- to balance out my life.

Ted, from Happily Ever Crafter issued a Tribute to St. Patrick Color Challenge (sheesh, these colors scared me at first, Ted, but I am so happy with the way the card turned out!)...but it also called for the use of a three leaf shamrock. While on the hunt for one, I found these digital images from Paper Smooches, offered during their guest design contest. I don't think I've ever searched for a three leaf shamrock before making this card, but I have been a sucker to search for the elusive four-leaf clover...


I was also awarded this from Brandi at Yankee Belle Stamper. Thanks, Brandi! Brandi is so fun and talented...love what she does with PTI stamps. I'd like to give a shout out to a few other blogs that I've started to follow recently, these ladies are also so very talented!

  8. I like the "wake-up" colors Karen. And your search for a 3-leaf clover means less work for the rest of us!

  14. I think this may be my favorite St. Patrick's Day card I've seen this year. I'm just not much of a fan of them: too much green. Your orange gives it the flair many others are missing. {imo} Nice!

  17. so fun! who knew a 3 leaf clover could bring as much of a smile as a 4 leaf one? (well, admittedly I did, as I love the zen they create when pulled from the grass....)
    :D
